Cream Cheese & Chive Omelet Recipe

Cream Cheese & Chive Omelet Recipe

The first bite of creamy filling lets you know this isn’t any old omelet. Make it once, and we suspect you’ll be fixing it often. —Anne Troise, Manalapan, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • Salsa


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Whisk the eggs, chives, water, salt and pepper. Add egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
  • 2. As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, sprinkle cream cheese on one side; fold other side over filling. Slide omelet onto a plate; cut in half. Serve with salsa. Yield: 2 servings.

"Great recipe! I used some freshly cooked spinach and scallions. What is really great about this recipe is the instructions. This is the first omelet I every made that tastes like the omelets served by good restaurants! While the recipe makes a very large omelet, it can be easily changed to a one serving recipe just by cutting the ingredients in half."

"What's not to like. To make it even more fluffy, add the salt at the very end of cooking. But that is pretty standard for most egg dishes like this. I used New Mexico Salsa Verde as a topping."

"So good! I was reading my S@D right before making breakfast, so I thought I would give this a try. I had to use what I had on hand, so I had to use egg beaters, reduced fat cream cheese and dried chives, and it was delicious! This would also make a nice brunch recipe or quick dinner."
