Servings: 4
Yield: 1 large omelet

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil
6 spears of fresh asparagus, trimmed and chopped
½ red bell pepper, chopped
½ cup cherry tomatoes halved
½ cup chopped fresh spinach
½ teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried basil
salt to taste
2 tablespoons butter
6 large eggs
¼ cup whole milk
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions / Instructions

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir asparagus and red bell pepper until the vegetables start to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in cherry tomatoes, spinach, garlic, oregano, basil, and salt and continue cooking until tomatoes are soft and spinach has cooked down, another 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer vegetables to a plate.

Step 2

Melt butter in a clean skillet over medium heat. Whisk eggs and milk in a bowl and pour into hot butter, swirling skillet to cover the entire bottom with egg mixture. Pull up an edge of the omelet with a spatula and tilt the pan to allow the unset egg to run underneath and cook; continue around the pan, lifting omelet edge and tilting the pan, until all the egg mixture is set. Sprinkle omelet with salt.

Step 3

Spoon cooked asparagus mixture onto one side of the omelet and sprinkle with feta and Cheddar cheeses. Gently fold half the omelet over the vegetables and cheese and press edges lightly to seal in the filling. Cook until filling is hot and Cheddar cheese has melted, 1 to 2 more minutes. Cut in slices to serve.
