Asparagus Omelet Recipe

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Small clove garlic,minced
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed dried basil or
  • 3/4 tsp minced fresh basil
  • Dash freshly ground black pepper


Instructions:

1. Cut asparagus in 1 inch pieces; cook in boiling salted water until tender, about 2 to 4 minutes. Drain thoroughly. 2. Melt 1 tbsp butter in 8-inch skillet, preferably one with non-stick lining; saute garlic and mushrooms until done and moisture has evaporated.
3. Remove from pan; keep warm. 4. In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, basil and pepper.
5. Melt remaining butter in skillet until foamy, swirling it around pan to coat evenly.
6. When hot enough that a drop of water sizzles when dropped in, pour in egg mixture.
7. Tip pan so eggs coat skillet evenly.
8. As eggs cook, periodically lift up cooked edges, tilt pan and let uncooked egg run underneath.
9. When eggs are cooked, but surface is still shiny, place asparagus and mushrooms on one side; slide out of pan, folding side without vegetables over top.
10. Serve immediately
