Green up your omelette with some fresh asparagus. Separate the eggs and whip well for a souffle style finish. Try it with Swiss or Cheddar cheese – or both!
- Prep: 15 min
- Cooking: 15 min - 20 min
- 3 eggs separated
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
- 12 fresh asparagus cut into 3/4-in (1 1/2 cm) pieces
- 1 shallot minced
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) Canadian-Swiss or Cheddar cheese shredded
- 1 tsp (5 mL) fresh tarragon chopped or 1/8 tsp (.5 mL) dried tarragon
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a 9-inch (23 cm) non-stick frying pan, heat butter at medium heat, sauté shallots for 2,3 minutes, then add asparagus and cook 3,4 min longer. Season.
In bowl, whip egg whites into soft peaks. Add yolks, season and mix well using a rubber spatula.
Remove asparagus from pan. Leaving heat at medium, pour in eggs. Sprinkle over tarragon, cheese and arrange asparagus. Cook 5 to 7 minutes without stirring for a firm texture. Finish under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, fold over and serve.
