8
eggs
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
cup 1-inch pieces fresh asparagus
1/2
red bell pepper, cut into thin slivers
1/2
cup garden vegetable cream cheese spread (from 8-oz container)
2
tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  1. In medium bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper with fork or wire whisk until well blended; set aside. In 8-inch nonstick omelet pan or skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the butter over medium heat. Cook asparagus and bell pepper in butter 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender; remove from pan.
  2. Add 2 teaspoons of the butter to pan. Increase heat to medium-high. Pour half of the egg mixture (scant 1 cup) into pan. As mixture begins to set at bottom and side, gently lift cooked portions with spatula so that thin, uncooked portion can flow to bottom. Avoid constant stirring. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup of the cream cheese in dollops evenly over omelet; top with half of the asparagus and bell pepper. Tilt skillet and slip pancake turner under omelet to loosen. Remove from heat. Fold omelet in half; remove omelet from skillet. Repeat with remaining ingredients. To serve, cut each omelet crosswise in half; sprinkle with chives.
