Cream Cheese & Chive Omelet

This is a great quick breakfast for dinner meal. I love the creamy texture the cream cheese gives it but you could use cheddar instead if you like. Add some avocado & toast and you have yourself a meal! This recipe comes from Taste of Home.

  • 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 non-stick 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).
