Fines Herbes & Mushroom Omelets Deluxe Recipe

Fines Herbes & Mushroom Omelets Deluxe Recipe

The subtle blend of fine herbs doesn’t overtake other flavors in these omelets—it enhances them. Garnish with extra herbs or shredded Asiago cheese for a special breakfast, lunch or dinner.—Lee Lockwood, Maybrook, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon each minced fresh parsley, tarragon and chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chervil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • ASIAGO SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • OMELETS:
  • 4 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Additional minced fresh herbs, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in the herbs, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese and salt. Keep warm.
  • 3. In a small nonstick skillet, melt 1 teaspoon butter over medium-high heat. Whisk eggs and water until blended. Add 2/3 cup egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
  • 4. As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, spoon 1/2 cup mushroom mixture on one side; fold other side over filling. Slide omelet onto a plate; top with 1/4 cup sauce. Sprinkle with additional herbs if desired. Repeat. Yield: 4 servings.
