When you have farm fresh eggs and asparagus coming out of your ears, what do you do? You make omelets, of course. Even better if you have asiago and prosciutto on hand. This is one of my favorite breakfast/brunch recipes because it is so flavorful and quick and easy to make.

What a great way to start your day! This is a fancy (but easy!) omelet to serve for a special day! The asparagus adds a slight crunch. The prosciutto adds so much flavor. Be careful when adding salt since prosciutto is salty. Delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
