Smoked Salmon, Soft Cheese and Chive Omelette

cook 10 mins
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 200 g (7 oz) soft cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 100 g (3 1/2 oz) smoked salmon pieces
  • 3 tablespoons snipped chives
  • salt and pepper
  • salad, to serve (optional)
  • Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan. Season the eggs with salt and pepper, then pour into the pan and cook over a gentle heat for 4–5 minutes until the base is set and the top is almost set.
  • Meanwhile, beat the soft cheese in a bowl with the measurement water until very soft.
  • Spoon the cheese over the omelette and gently spread a little. Arrange the smoked salmon over the top, then scatter over the chives and cook gently for a further 1 minute until the top is warm.
  • Fold one side of the omelette over the other. Serve cut into 4 wedges, with a simple salad, if liked.
