Chive and Goat Cheese Omelette

  • Serves

    serves 1

Choose a young, mild-tasting goat cheese for this omelette so as not to overpower the chives.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped chives, plus more
  • 1 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, plus more
  • 2 Tbsp. softened goat cheese


Step 1

Whisk together eggs, chives, cream, and season with salt and pepper. Melt butter in an 8" nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and stir briskly with a rubber spatula until eggs just begin to set but the center remains moist, about 1 minute. Use spatula to neaten edges and smooth over curds. Cook undisturbed until set in middle, about 1 minute. Dollop cheese down center. Use spatula to roll omelette into a 2 1⁄2"-wide oblong shape, folding it over filling. Turn omelette onto a plate; brush with a bit more melted butter. Sprinkle with finely chopped chives.
