"I fix omelets at least once a week. I love the addition of chives ; however, husband didn't even notice since he drowned his omelet with salsa. I liked it. Since I had mushrooms that were turning, I added that with the chives. Instead of water, I chose to use half & half which I normally use anyway. It gives the omelet a smoother taste."
