Asparagus Omelette Recipe @pinch

What a great way to start your day! This is a fancy asparagus omelette to serve for a special brunch. But it's easy to make when you want eggs for breakfast or want to have a breakfast for dinner night. Buttery eggs are fluffy in texture and have a golden crust. Asparagus adds a crisp, fresh flavor. Crumbled prosciutto adds a salty and savory contrast. Melted Asiago cheese gives the omelette a touch of nutty flavor. Even though it's only made with a few ingredients, it tastes like a gourmet meal. When you have farm-fresh eggs and asparagus coming out of your ears, what should you do? You make omelets, of course. It's even better if you have Asiago and prosciutto on hand. This is one of my favorite breakfast/brunch recipes because it is easy to make and flavorful.
