Cheese and Chive Omelet

Cheese and Chive Omelet created by ImPat

I wanted to use up some egg whites, chives and left over cheese I had in the refrigerator so adapted this recipe from Bon Appetit (November 2006)with my changes. The original recipe used whole eggs and cheddar cheese.

Ready In:
10mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 12 cup egg white
  • 1 -2 tablespoon chopped chives
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup grated cheese (I used Monterey Jack but a combination of cheeses or your favorite cheese will work well)

directions

  • Whisk together the eggs, egg whites, chives, salt and pepper (I used a lot of pepper) in a bowl.
  • In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat.
  • Add egg mixture to pan, cooking for a few minutes until almost set, lifting sides so egg mixture can run under.
  • Grate (or sprinkle) cheese over top of eggs (I grated it right over the eggs) and cook a few more minutes until cheese melts.
  • Fold 1/3 of the omelet over the center and then the other side over the center.
  • Turn omelet onto plate and cut in half or thirds.

    What a wonderfully delicious breakfast this made, unfortunately our recent hot weather has adverse effects on my herb garden so used the green part of a young spring onion instead of chives otherwise made as directed. Thank you ellie_ made for Rookies tag game.

    PERFECT blend of flavors; I used some sharp cheddar, adding crumbled bacon. Bingo, a wonderful breakfast. Made for the Chive event: French Forum and Farmhouse Cooking: Photo Forum.
