Sharp Asiago is a heavenly match for mild turkey. When buying the cheese, keep in mind that the firmer the brick, the more intense the flavour, so choose according to your family's tastes. Feel free to substitute with a milder Jarlsberg or Emmental cheese, if you prefer.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- 4 cups lightly packed baby spinach
- 8 eggs whisked
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
- 1 cup chopped cooked turkey
- 1/2 cup lightly packed grated Asiago cheese
MethodIn 10-inch (25 cm) ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and thyme, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and light golden, about 5 minutes. Add spinach; cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper; stir in turkey and half of the Asiago cheese. Pour over spinach mixture; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, without stirring, until bottom and edge are set but top is still slightly runny, about 10 minutes.
Sprinkle with remaining Asiago cheese. Broil until top is golden and set, about 3 minutes. Let rest for 3 minutes. Remove from skillet; cut into wedges.
Tip From The Test Kitchen: To remove your frittata from the skillet, run a small knife around the edge to loosen it first. Using a large spatula, lift it onto a cutting board to slice.
