Cream Cheese & Chive Omelet

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


2 servings

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

  • 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.

    A really delicious omelet! This was so simple yet tasted so good, you'd think it was complicated! My kids aren't big egg eaters but they do love omelets. We all loved the cream cheese in this recipe!

    This looked really good and I did make it. Way too much oil for my taste. I will probably make it again using less oil.

    A quick and delicious breakfast recipe! The cream cheese reminded me of eating bagels so much that I turned this into a bagel breakfast sandwich - just added a piece of ham. So tasty!

    Simple, easy and taste great as is, but also a great base to add other ingredients, especially vegetables - broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, . This is a summertime staple, quick, easy supper for busy summertime weeknights.

    SO good! As one other reviewer said, I added spinach. With or without, this is a regular now!

    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.
