Asparagus Cream Cheese Omelet Recipe

Asparagus Cream Cheese Omelet Recipe

WHEN asparagus is in season, it seems it appears at every one of my meals. Not only does it go well with eggs, but it presents a very appetizing omelet.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cubed and softened

Directions

  • 1. Fill a small saucepan three-fourths full with water; bring to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, uncovered, 2-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove and immediately drop into ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  • 2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, sour cream, onion, salt and pepper flakes. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edge. As eggs set, push cooked portions toward the center, letting uncooked eggs flow underneath.
  • 3. When eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains, top one side with cream cheese and asparagus. Fold omelet in half. Reduce heat to low; let stand, covered, 1-2 minutes or until cream cheese is melted. Cut omelet in half before serving. Yield: 2 servings.
