Mushroom and Asparagus Baked Omelet

These omelets are so easy to make and very versitile. They make a nice brunch or a light dinner. I used two frying pans to make each individual omelets but one frying pan will do as you will be popping them into a hot oven to heat up again after you stuff them with all the goodies. Just make sure the frying pan you use is not too small other wise the omelet will be too thick. It should almost be as thin as a crepe.

In our house we have many different ways of eating. I am primarily vegetarian but I do eat fish (pescatarian), hubby is Type 1.5 diabetic (low carb), daughter will eat almost anything and my son lives primarily off Kraft Dinner, Nutella and Corn Pops. With this in mind it can make dinners a bit of a roller coaster ride but making the omelet this way made it easy to add and omit ingredients to please everyone.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
