- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Dash pepper
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- In a small bowl, whisk eggs, water, salt and pepper. Stir in chives.
- In a small nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges. As eggs set, push cooked portions toward the center, letting uncooked eggs flow underneath.
- When eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains, sprinkle cheese on one side; fold omelet in half. Cut omelet in half; slide onto plates. Yield: 2 servings.

Reviews for Cheesy Chive Omelet
"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."
"Simple and tasty!"
"very easy my 13 year old daughter made this for me and It was excellent"
