I have a very particular way of making omelette including asparagus omelette. I learned how to make my omelettes this way in my first term living away from home at University. I lived in hall and had excellent food 6 days a week. On the 7th day our cook rested and we had to fend for ourselves. We had pretty limited kitchen facilities but one of our group of friends was particularly good at cheese and sweetcorn omelettes and I use his technique to this day.
Hint : I always seem to need more eggs that I think but then
what might start out as a light snack sometimes turns out to be very filling. This recipe is for an asparagus omelette to serve one hungry person.
3 asparagus spears
1 tablespoon milk
Whatever else is in the fridge: mushrooms, bacon, sweetcorn, cheese…
Olive oil or butter
Salt & Pepper
Cooking Time: 10mins
Asparagus omelette should be light and fluffy and not at all dry. Don't cook it for too long to keep it from drying out and use this method of lifting the edge to allow uncooked egg mix to run underneath.
There are so many variations to omelettes I don't think I ever make two quite the same. You can use all sorts of different cheeses, bacon, ham, sausage, smoked salmon, cooked prawns, peppers, leeks, the list just goes on.
You may or may not have heard of Frittata. This is quite simliar to omelette but is more about the asparagus than the egg. You might like to take a look at our recipe and find out how the two recipes differ.
