Omelette with Morels & Ramps
D'Artagnan | Yield: serves 1 | Cook Time: about 10 minutes
Wild ramps and morel mushrooms are a perfect pair in this simple springtime omelette. Use a mild, milky cheese like young Fontina to complement, not overpower the delicate flavors.
- In a small skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add morels, sauté until just soft and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add ramp greens and continue to sauté until greens are dark and wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Heat remaining tablespoon of butter over medium-high flame until foamy. Add eggs, tilting the pan to spread evenly. Allow the eggs to firm up a little, then use a spatula to gently direct the mixture away from the sides and into the middle. Allow the remaining liquid to then flow into the space left at the sides of the pan. Continue to cook for another minute or so until the egg mixture holds together. While the middle is still a little runny, add ¾ of the cheese and all of the morel and ramp mixture.
