Mini asparagus omelettes

I love these little oven-baked omelettes, as they hardly take any preparation time at all and only require four ingredients. They are a great spring-time snack, light lunch or picnic food if you’re keen to get away from your desk for a proper break.

Tip

I’ve used fine asparagus tips here, so they don’t need cooking first. If you’ve using thick asparagus spears blanch them first.

This recipe is a great jumping-off point for using up what you’ve got in the fridge. Use this as a basis – you don’t have to use asparagus, you can add anything in!
