I've made this omelet since I was in my early 20's as a quick and tasty breakfast on 'feeling lazy' mornings. Back then I wasn't as much into gourmet as I was just in to having easy items already on hand ;-) This makes a really large open faced omelet, so you might want to consider sharing if you have a small appetite and/or if having hash browns and bacon or sausage links on the side. Oh, and it's not always easy to slide this puppy out of the skillet on to a plate just right, but no matter how it looks it still tastes yummy!
Place asparagus, not drained, into a small saucepan and heat over medium low, gently stir occasionally, turn down to low once completely warmed. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
Heat enough butter to coat in a large skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture, swirling pan as needed to keep eggs evenly flowing, and cook until eggs are 'almost' cooked through, sprinkle evenly with cheese, allow cheese to 'almost' melt and remove from heat.
Drain asparagus well in a colander and evenly top over the egg and cheese. Sprinkle with a bit more cheese if desired and serve.
Cook over medium heat, lifting edges and tilting pan to allow uncooked egg to run under until set, but still moist on top. Scatter reserved avocado and shrimp over omelet. Fold omelet in half; heat another minute or two. Slide omelet onto a warmed serving plate; garnish with parsley springs, if desired.
To serve, cut omelet into wedges

I am looking for easy omelet recipes.
You don't really need a recipe, start out like for a basic omelet, then add whatever meats, cheeses, veggies that you want to add to it, in whatever amounts you want.
A month or so ago, there was a recipe for cooking an omelet in a freezer bag. That's the recipe I am looking for.
The recipe in the freezer bag is dangerous, if you search it out you'll see what people are saying, the freezer bag wasn't meant for the microwave, and the plastics will leach into your eggs.
Would you like an oven omelette recipe? It's crazy good, and very easy to make - especially for company. You can break it down into smaller portions. Some nice additions to omelettes, btw: halved cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, frozen spinach (thawed in a little warm water before adding dry a bit with paper towels to not make the eggs runny), finely chopped sun dried tomatoes or roasted red bell peppers, fajita chicken or beef left over from other meals.

Ditto with Vaylmer. It's health dangerous to cook anything in plastic bags whether in the microwave or boiling water because of the chemicals used to make the bags.
The anonymous first person to comment here is what I was going to say. One of my favorites is heating canned asparagus (in it's juice) in a small saucepan while preparing and cooking the eggs in the skillet. Place oodles of shredded cheddar on half of the almost cooked eggs, drain the asparagus well, top the cheese with the asparagus, fold the other side of the omelet over both ingredients and cook just enough longer for the cheese to be almost melted.
My microwave cooks fantastic omelets. I dice onion and tomato and maybe a cheese brat to go with. Ham or turkey ham is good too. One can always include regular diced peppers and much else. Two large eggs by themselves are perfect after 90 seconds. But all microwave machines are different, check yours out. Way less time spent messing with a frypan and cooktop. We hermits rate simplicity really high. If you like toast it's a perfect pause while toast is toasting until eggs are done.
How do I cook an omelet?
By gigges from Manchester, UK
Hi. First crack the eggs, as many as you like. Then wisk them together, like scrambled. Pour into the buttered pan, let it get cooking and then add ingredients. Like cheese ham bacon, mushrooms anything you like, then flip onto other side, and wallah an omelet. Hope that helped :)
Heat some oil in a frying pan (around a tablespoonful). Beat your eggs with salt & pepper to taste and add a few drops of cold water. Pour mixture into pan. While it is cooking, pull back the edges with a spatula and tip the pan slightly to let the uncooked egg get in contact with the heated oil. This prevents the omelette from being overcooked, yet ensuring the egg is cooked in the middle. Fold over the omelette which should now be nice and fluffy. If you wish to add filling, do so to one half as it is cooking.
I agree with skinnyjinny except for instead of oil I would use butter or cooking spray and I add milk or cream instead of water to the egg mixture. Also, cook it on medium heat so it doesn't cook to quickly.
A friend of mine is entering a body-building competition, and as a result, has egg-white omelettes for breakfast every day. He has been wanting ideas on how to make them more interesting. So if anyone has any good omelet recipes that he can adapt, please let me know.

try adding vegetables like bell peppers and onions to it!
An egg white is like a blank canvas : )) Anything that would work in an omelette will work mixed into egg whites. I'd blanch veggies first, as the egg whites will cook up quickly. You don't have to scramble them. Simply Pour the egg whites into a hot pan sprayed with pam, scatter any (cooked) meat or veg combination throughout and season. You can turn and cook on both sides, or just cover till done
Cheese is nice on them too. Top with cheese when almost done, and cover.
ANY time I make eggs, omelette or scrambled, I add a few drops of my favorite hot sauce to the liquid before cooking. How much to add depends on how hot you like it.
Also, almost any veggie or meat can be added to the omelette. The other day, we had lefter over shredded chicken and mushrooms. Yumm. Salsa and avocado are good additions as well.
Can an omelet be baked in a toaster oven or does it always have to be fried?
If it is baked - at what temp and for how long? Can it be done in my mom's toaster oven?
