1/2 lb
asparagus, trimmed
2 Tbsp
1 small
clove garlic, minced
1/2 lb
mushrooms, sliced
eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
crushed dried basil or 3/4 teaspoons minced fresh basil
freshly ground black pepper


1Cut asparagus in 1 inch pieces. Cook in boiling salted water until tender, about 2 to 4 minutes.
2Drain thoroughly.
3Melt 1 tablespoon butter in 8 inch skillet, preferably one with non-stick lining; saute garlic and mushrooms until done and moisture has evaporated.
4Remove from pan; keep warm.
5In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, basil and pepper.
6Melt remaining butter in skillet until foamy, swirling it around pan to coat evenly.
7When hot enough that a drop of water sizzles when dropped in, pour in egg mixture.
8Tip pan so eggs coat skillet evenly.
9As eggs cook, periodically lift up cooked edges, tilt pan and let uncooked egg run underneath.
10When eggs are cooked, but surface is still shiny, place asparagus and mushrooms on one side; slide out of pan, folding side without vegetables over top.
11Serve immediately.
