Asparagus Omelette

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"Who knew asparagus and eggs tasted so good together? Fantastic for lazy Sunday mornings (that turn into afternoons) or a quick dinner. The Master Omelettier's secret to a gorgeous and fluffy omelette is to cook covered on medium-low until the final step - adding cheese and broiling in the oven for 2 minutes, or until brown. For the fearless cook and the adventurous eater, consider adding some smoked salmon flavored cream cheese. Enjoy with toast or fresh croissants. Bon appetite!"

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble bacon pieces.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until tender yet firm to the bite, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute onion, tomato, and mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Whisk eggs and cream together in a bowl; add bacon, sauteed vegetables, asparagus, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  5. Pour egg mixture into an oven-proof nonstick skillet and cover skillet. Cook over medium-low until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over omelette.
  6. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  7. Broil omelette in the preheated oven until a golden crust starts to form on the top, about 2 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • To keep bottom of omelette from burning, add 2 to 3 tablespoons water as omelette cooks. The steam will help to cook.

This recipe is a lot of work for an omelette, but worth it in the end. I'm not used to cooking my veggies before adding them to the recipe, because I like the fresher, crisper taste, but in th...

It tasted better than it looks

Turned out great. Even my 9 year old loved it and asked me to make it again. Menu: asparagus omelette, home fries, fresh fruit.

Didn't have bacon, so diced up some deli ham. Sauted ham, onions, asparagus, Roma tomatoes, white mushrooms. Added them to the egg/cheddar cheese mixture in 9" skillet on stove top. While cook...

This came out really well. I didn't have bacon on hand so I used some crumbled sausage. I've never used asparagus in eggs before but it was delicious - will definitely try it again.

My husband LOVED IT!!! I used feta cheese instead of mozzarella. I also added a couple dashes of garlic powder. Excellent flavor combination!
