Oxmoor House JANUARY 2008

  • Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 1/2 of omelet)
  • Cook time:13 Minutes
  • Prep time:11 Minutes


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped asparagus (about 6 spears)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) reduced-fat shredded Swiss cheese


Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, asparagus, and green onions; sauté 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from pan, set aside, and keep warm.

Combine eggs, egg white, and next 3 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Heat remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil in pan. Add egg mixture to pan; cook until edges begin to set (about 2 minutes). Gently lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking until center is just set (about 4 minutes).

Spoon vegetable mixture evenly over half of omelet, and sprinkle cheese over vegetable mixture. Loosen omelet with spatula, and fold in half. Cut omelet in half crosswise, and serve immediately.
