Instructions
 

  • Preheat an 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 the 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.
