Asparagus Cream Cheese Omelet
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
I had leftover asparagus so I reheated it for just 30 seconds in microwave before adding it to the omelette. I put the cream cheese in with it to soften it. I used ricotta cheese instead of sour cream because that’s what I had on hand. It was quite delicious, like something you’d have at brunch at a little cafe!
I have never added any dairy or water, for that matter, to eggs and have them stand up to being folded or rolled in an omelet! But, saying that, these were Very Tasty scrambled eggs except the dried onions did not have a chance to rehydrate and came across as kind of gritty. Am going to experiment with this recipe as "scrambled eggs" by using something other than the crushed red pepper flakes and dried onions. Maybe some hot sauce and some sauteed fresh onions? Also the only asparagus I had was some "leftover" garlic butter asparagus. Yummy!
This has awesome flavor!! Unfortunately I am horrible at making omelets so it became a scramble of sorts, but we still loved it. I was sad that there weren't any leftovers. I'll have to keep trying to perfect the omelet. I did roast my asparagus in the oven with olive oil, salt and pepper instead of boiling it. I just prefer it this way. More flavorful in my opinion. I'll definitely make these again.
Very good...I loved the addition of the sour cream to the eggs
Yum! I didn't have any sour cream on hand though, so I substituted heavy cream and it still came out great.
I roasted my asparagus in the oven, because I was already cooking several things on my stove. This omelet was easy and tasty. I will remake this.
This is my first year to be able to use my own asparagus. I was thrilled to find this recipe. It was easy, fast and delicious. I substitued onion powder and sprinkled that and the salt and pepper lightly over the egg mixture before beating. I didn't have a non-stick pan and instead used my cast iron griddle. I would cook the egg mixture at a medium heat next time so it wouldn't brown so much.
