Breakfast Recipes

  1. In a mixing bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them together until well combined. Season the eggs with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper. Set the bowl aside.

  2. Place a frying pan over medium heat and add 2 teaspoons of butter. Allow the butter to melt and coat the bottom of the pan evenly.

  3. Add the diced onion and fresh asparagus pieces to the pan. Sauté them for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are slightly browned and tender. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking. Once done, transfer the sautéed vegetables to a separate bowl and set aside.

  4. Using a folded paper towel, carefully wipe the hot pan to remove any residue. This will help prevent sticking.

  5. Return the pan to the heat and add the remaining 1 teaspoon of butter. Allow it to melt and coat the pan.

  6. Pour the whisked eggs into the pan, ensuring they spread evenly to cover the bottom. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the eggs.

  7. Once the eggs start to set around the edges, gently add the sautéed onion and asparagus on one half of the omelette. Let the eggs continue to cook until the edges are completely set and the center is slightly jiggly.

  8. Using a spatula, carefully slide it under the side of the Omelette without the filling. Carefully fold that half over the side with the filling, creating a half-moon shape.

  9. Continue to cook the Omelette for another minute or so, allowing the cheese to melt and the center to cook through.

  10. Once the Omelette is cooked to your liking, carefully slide it onto a plate.

  11. Top the Omelette with the remaining shredded cheese and the sautéed vegetables that were set aside earlier.

  12. Serve your delicious Omelette with your favorite salsa on the side. The salsa adds a burst of flavor and a touch of freshness to the dish.

Here are some tips to help you make the most of this Cheesy Asparagus
and Onion Omelette with Sautéed Vegetables recipe:

  1. Prep Ingredients: Before you start cooking, make sure to have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go. Dice the onion, trim and cut the asparagus, and have the cheese and butter measured out.

  2. Even Sauté: While sautéing the onion and asparagus, stir occasionally to ensure even browning. You want them to be tender and slightly caramelized, which will enhance their flavor.

  3. Pan Size: Choose a pan that's the right size for the number of eggs you're using. A pan that's too large may cause the eggs to spread too thin, while a small pan might make it challenging to fold the omelette.

  4. Low and Slow: When cooking the eggs, use medium-low heat. This prevents the eggs from cooking too quickly on the outside while leaving the center raw. A slower cook ensures a more even texture.

  5. Cheese Melting: Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the eggs once they're in the pan. The heat will help melt the cheese and integrate it into the omelette.

  6. Fillings Placement: When placing the sautéed vegetables on the eggs, try to concentrate them in the center or along one-third of the omelette, leaving space to fold.

  7. Folding Technique: For the tri-fold, fold one-third of the omelette over the center portion of the eggs and filling. Then, slide the omelette slightly towards the edge of the pan and fold the remaining third over the folded portion. This technique creates the classic tri-fold shape.

  8. Gentle Handling: When folding the omelette, use a gentle touch to prevent breaking the eggs. A flexible spatula is helpful for this purpose.

  9. Cooking Time: Keep an eye on the omelette's doneness. You want the edges to be set, and the center to be slightly soft but not runny. Overcooking can lead to a dry omelette.

  10. Plating and Presentation: When serving, top the omelette with the remaining cheese and sautéed vegetables for an appealing look. Don't forget to add your favorite salsa for a flavor boost.

  11. Experiment: Feel free to customize the recipe with additional herbs, spices, or other fillings you enjoy. Spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, or diced ham are great options.

  12. Practice Makes Perfect: Omelette-making can take some practice to get the folding technique just right. Don't be discouraged if your first attempt isn't perfect—each try will likely improve your skills.
