Asparagus Omelet Recipe

Asparagus Omelet Recipe

When my husband and I created this recipe when trying to use up leftover asparagus and hollandaise sauce. The vegetable-filled omelet gets its irresistible flavor from the creamy sauce and a nice crunch from crumbled bacon. We think this is special enough for company.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope hollandaise sauce mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 8 bacon strips, diced
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 12 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, prepare the hollandaise sauce mix with milk and butter according to package directions; keep warm.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; remove to paper towels. In the drippings, saute mushrooms until tender; set aside.
  • 3. Place asparagus and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and keep warm.
  • 4. Coat a 10-in. skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat; add 3/4 cup beaten eggs (3 eggs) to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
  • 5. As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, sprinkle a fourth of the asparagus, 1/4 cup cheese and a fourth of the mushrooms on one side and sprinkle with cheese; fold other side over filling. Invert omelet onto a plate to serve. Repeat for remaining omelets. Top with hollandaise sauce and bacon. Yield: 4 omelets.
