My Aunt Mimi made this for me and it was the tastiest omelette I ever had! I was inspired!

Ingredients

  • Fresh Chives, Optional (1 Tablespoon)

  • Butter, Unsalted (4 Tablespoons)

  • Cream Cheese (8 Tablespoons)

  • Eggs, Large (8)

  • Black Pepper

  • Kosher Salt

  • Apricot Preserves (8 Tablespoons)

Equipment

  • Aluminum Foil

  • Stove Top

  • Measuring Spoons

  • Mixing Bowl, Medium

  • Rubber Spatula

  • Saute Pan, Medium

  • Whisk

Notes

  1. There isn't really a good way to make a big batch of omelettes unless you have more than one pan. So, cook these individually. Let the pan cool in between omelettes, and crack fresh eggs each time. Since it's a very active, hands-on recipe, pair it with easy, pre-cook recipes like a mixed green salad or fruit and yogurt.

    Feel free to substitute your favorite jam or preserves, or a low-fat cream cheese. Get creative!

    Once butter is melted, and you can hear it sizzling slightly, pour in the whisked eggs. Cook the eggs slowly, turning the pan and using a rubber spatula to gently lift up the sides as they set. When you lift the sides, allow the loose egg to run underneath.

    Once you see the egg setting into a solid sheet with a thin layer of raw egg on top, scoop 1-2 tablespoons of preserves and 1-2 tablespoons of cream cheese onto the center of the omelette. Scatter it evenly down the middle.

    Fold one side of the omelette over the preserves and cream cheese, then fold the other side over the top. Let it sit for about 30 seconds to help melt the cheese and finish cooking the egg on the inside, then slide the omelette out onto a clean plate. Cover loosely with foil.
