  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Position a rack in the middle of the oven, and heat to 400 F. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg (if using); whisk until well blended and set aside.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot, asparagus, and ham. Cook, stirring, for about 4 to 6 minutes, or until the asparagus is bright green and the shallots are translucent.
  4. Step 4

    Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and add about 3/4 of the cheese; stir gently to distribute the ingredients. Top with the sliced cherry tomatoes and the remaining cheese. 
  5. Step 5

    Continue to cook over medium heat for about 1 minute, or until the outer edge looks slightly set. Transfer the frittata to the oven and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, until the eggs are puffed and set. To check for doneness, make a small cut in the center with a knife. If liquid egg mixture flows into the cut, it needs another minute or two.
  6. Step 6

    Remove the pan to a rack and let it cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. To slice, run a thin spatula or knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the frittata. Slice and garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
