TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2-4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope (1-1/4 ounces) hollandaise sauce mix
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cups cut fresh asparagus, cooked, divided
  • 2 cups flaked imitation crabmeat, coarsely chopped, divided

Directions

  • 1. Prepare hollandaise sauce according to package directions; set aside and keep warm.
  • 2. In a 10-in. nonstick skillet, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add half of the egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
  • 3. As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on one side. Layer with 1 cup asparagus, 1 cup crab and 1/2 cup cheese; fold omelet in half. Cover and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Invert omelet onto a plate. Repeat for second omelet.
