My favorite part about spring, along with the sun finally warming New York, is the abundance of beautiful spring produce! I always cook with the seasons, so when given a chance to create a recipe with the sweet, nutty Comte cheese from France, I couldn't wait to create a dish that paired this delicious cheese with some fresh, seasonal produce.
When creating this recipe with The Cheeses of Europe, I couldn't help but drift towards a dish that I could enjoy with friends and family at Sunday brunch. A baked omelette seemed the perfect choice! Cheesy, fluffy, and perfectly seasoned, I guarantee this will be a well-loved dish at your next hosted brunch. Watch the whole video here, or see my recipe below! Bon appetit!
2 tablespoons shallots, sliced and quartered 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped 1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped 2 radishes, quartered 1 bunch asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces on diagonal 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Salt and pepper 12 eggs 1/4 cup milk 3/4 and 1/4 cups Comté cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 350°.Toss the shallots, peppers, radishes, and asparagus in a bowl with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange on baking sheet and roast in oven for 25 minutes. Allow the vegetables to cool a bit, and then place them in an ovenproof nonstick sauté pan and pour the egg mixture over top. On a low flame, cook the eggs until they start to set, about 4-5 minutes. Then place the pan back in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until eggs are cooked through.Sprinkle the remaining Comté on top, and cut into wedges to serve.
