3 Egg Omelette with Asparagus

 

3 eggs

1 tbsp milk

½ serving of Roasted Asparagus with Pine Nuts (10-12 pencil stalks)

3 tbsp smoked Gouda, shredded

 

Preheat 8” saute pan on the stovetop over medium heat.

Crack eggs in a deep bowl. Add milk and whisk with a fork until well blended.

Coat pan with cooking spray and pour eggs carefully into the pan, covering the bottom of the pan evenly. Allow to cook undisturbed until eggs are set. If a “harder” cooked omelette is desired, gently flip it when it’s cooked enough to be manageable.

Heat asparagus in the microwave just until warm, 20-30 seconds. Place in a single layer on half of the omelette, sprinkle with Gouda and fold the omelet in half to cover.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

  1. Hello,

    Thank you very much for sharing your menu with everyone. That looks really tasty. I have never tried Asparagus with Omelet before but I would like to try once. Usually we cook Omelet with mix vegetables from all sorts of different colors. We add up smoked Salmon in it. It tastes very delicious and is one of my favourite breakfast.  

    1. To tell you the truth, I only thought to try this because I had leftover asparagus in my fridge and I wanted to use it up!  Omelets are very versatile and I have used many things to make them but I have never thought of using smoked salmon.  It sounds fantastic!

  2. Hi Cynthia 

    There is nothing more comforting than an omelette, as they tend to be easy to make, quick and only need a few ingredients. Your omelette recipe  looks so delicious that I want to try it straight away, shame it is not asparagus  season. I think it will make a delicate and light lunch. Thank you for the idea.

    can you substitute another cheese for gouda?

    Thanks

    Antonio

    1. There is nothing better than fresh asparagus and I eat all I can get my hands on when it’s in season.  I must confess, though…I can’t wait months for my next fix so sometimes I have to buy some in the supermarket!

      I am also a big lover of cheese and, for me, that makes them interchangeable in recipes.  Every different cheese leaves its own mark on a dish.  Please let me know what cheese you substituted and what you thought of it!

  3. Hey CYNTHIA, I really love to eat various types of foods. Today I learn about a new way to make an omelet. I think it will also very useful for my diet program. I’m in a weight loss process since 2018. I tried many types of foods to succeed process. I can share this recipe with my mom as well. thank you.

    1.  This dish is loaded with nutritious foods, high-quality protein and fiber which makes it a great choice!  I wish you the best of luck in your weight loss journey.

  4. I had never thought of adding asparagus to an omelette. That sounds absolutely delicious. I will certainly have to try that. I usually make mine with green onions and red sweet peppers or mushrooms and parmesan. Looking forward to trying one with gouda. Thanks for the inspiration. How would I downsize that to a single egg? I know I can’t eat more than 1 egg, I don’t have a big appetite.

    1. I don’t how well one egg would form into an omelette (I feel like it may be too thin to flip) but please let me know if you decide to try it and how it works out.  My suggestion would be to cut the eggs back to two and save half for another meal!

  5. My doctor told me to have more often eggs and veggies for breakfast and I was looking for some recipes on the internet, I’m happy I found your website today. The 3 egg omelette with asparagus looks so tasty and it’s just exactly what the doctor told me to have for breakfast, 3 eggs might be too much for myself, but I guess I can make it and share it with my husband!

    1. This is a great recipe to share or you could save half of it for another day (which is what I usually do) but feel free to cut back to 2 eggs if that works better for you.
