Asparagus and Brie Omelet

After an arduous workout I had my mind set on an Omelet.   In rummaging through the frig, I found asparagus, herbed brie cheese and jalapeno bacon.  I knew exactly what to do and here it is...  it was amazing!

Asparagus and Brie Omelet

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 T olive oil or butter
  • asparagus
  • 2 T herbed brie or any other type cheese
  • 2 slices jalapeno bacon
Directions:   In a small saute pan, I cooked the asparagus with ends cut off in a little olive oil until still crisp, about 5 minutes, set aside.   Cut bacon into pieces and in same saute pan, fry bacon until crisp.   Remove and place on paper towel to remove oil and set aside.   In small bowl, beat eggs until completely incorporated.   In saute pan, add olive oil or butter and heat pan... add beaten eggs and coat entire bottom of pan.  If you want to flip your omelet to make sure it is completely cooked, you can... but I did not.   Quickly add your sauted asparagus and some brie, and fold in half.   Plate immediately.   To garnish, I added a touch more brie on top (which melted) and finished with crumbed jalapeno bacon.   Pepper to taste but do not salt... there is enough already!   This tastes amazing!!!
