Asparagus Omelette

Asparagus Omelette

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 pound asparagus (about 1 cup) - trimmed
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a medium sauce pan, bring asparagus and 2 cups of water to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and allow asparagus to cook until tender. Drain and rinse asparagus in warm water. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs with salt and 1/3 cup of water.

For each omelette (this recipe should make four) do the following:

Prepare a medium skillet or frying pan at medium heat with a teaspoon of melted butter. Pour 1/2 cup of the egg mixture into the pan. Cook until egg is set, occasionally lifting the edges of the omelette to allow more egg to cook. On one half of the omelette, sprinkle 1/4 cup of Swiss cheese. Top cheese with 1/4 cup of asparagus. Fold the omelette over. Allow to cook 1 more minute. Slide omelette onto serving plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley.

You can also use canned asparagus tips. But like all things, fresh is always best. Enjoy!

The Swiss helps, but adding enough onion, bacon and garlic, so the asparagus is a lessor main event, actually makes it better.

This sounds pretty good and very similar to one of my own. Rather than boiling the asparagus, I sauteed only the tips (none of the stalk) in the frying pan with a little butter, fresh garlic and ground cayenne. Rather than using swiss cheese, I used colby and pepper jack. Add a few slices of orange to the plate to off set the peppers, and enjoy!
