Chive and Goat Cheese Omelette Recipe

Yields: 1 serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Instructions

  • Whisk the Eggs: In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, salt, and pepper until well combined. The water helps create a fluffier omelette.
  • Melt the Butter: Heat a small nonstick skillet (about 8-inches) over medium heat. Add the butter and swirl to coat the pan evenly.
  • Cook the Eggs: Once the butter is melted and foaming, pour the egg mixture into the skillet. As the edges of the omelette begin to set, gently tilt the pan to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath. Using a spatula, carefully lift the cooked edges slightly to facilitate this process.
  • Add Cheese and Chives: When the omelette is almost set but still slightly wet on top (about 2 minutes), sprinkle the goat cheese crumbles and half the chopped chives evenly over one half of the omelette.
  • Fold and Cook: Carefully fold the omelette in half using a spatula. Cook for an additional minute or so, allowing the cheese to melt slightly.
  • Garnish and Serve: Slide the omelette onto a plate. Sprinkle with the remaining chives and enjoy immediately while hot.

Tips:

  • Customize It: Add other flavorful additions like sauteed mushrooms, spinach, or chopped bell peppers.
  • Don’t Overcook: Omelettes can become tough if overcooked. Be sure to remove yours from the heat while it’s still a little bit wet on top. The residual heat will continue to cook it.
  • Fresh Is Best: Fresh chives impart the best flavor, but feel free to substitute with dried chives if necessary.

Enjoy your delicious chive and goat cheese omelette!
