Ingredients

  • 4

    asparagus spears

  • 1/2

    tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 5

    large eggs, separated, room temperature

  • 2

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 1/2

    tablespoons soft goat cheese

  • 2 1/2

    tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint

  • 4

    paper-thin slices Serrano ham (about 1-ounce)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a wide medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add the asparagus, and cook until bright green and just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Plunge asparagus into ice-water bath to stop the cooking; let cool completely. Drain; halve lengthwise, and set aside. Melt butter in a 12-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Remove skillet from heat; set aside. Whisk together egg yolks, flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl until pale and thick; set aside. Put egg whites and a pinch of salt into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold whites into yolk mixture. Using a large rubber spatula, spread mixture evenly into reserved skillet. Bake until omelet is almost set but still soft, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle goat cheese and mint over half the omelet. Top with asparagus and a layer of ham. Fold plain half over filled half. Bake until cheese has melted and omelet is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Cut into 4 wedges, and serve.
