  • For omelet, in a small bowl whisk together eggs, the water, salt, and pepper until combined but not frothy. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with flared sides over medium-high heat until skillet is hot. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in skillet. Add half of the egg mixture; reduce heat to medium. Immediately begin stirring eggs gently but continuously with a wooden or plastic spatula until mixture resembles small pieces of cooked egg surrounded by liquid egg. Stop stirring. Cook for 30 to 60 seconds or until egg is set. Remove from heat. Using a spatula, lift and fold an edge of omelet to opposite edge. Transfer to a warm plate. Cover with foil and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the remaining egg mixture to make a second omelet.

Instructions Checklist
  • Toast bread. Spread avocado-asparagus mixture on 2 of the slices. Top with bacon, asparagus spears, omelets, and the remaining 2 slices. Cut sandwiches in half to make 4 servings.

Tip:

If desired, add two tomato slices to each sandwich.

Delicious. Made it without bacon, since we gave up meat for Lent, so it needed more salt. Also had to steam the asparagus some more; I did not like how it tasted after I followed the directions for pouring boiling water over the asparagus and letting it stand for ten minutes. Everyone loved it, including my 17 year old son, who doesn't really like vegetables.
