"Somehow, when cream cheese is mixed with herbs and melted in an omelet, it acquires a wonderful taste that you wouldn't associate with cream cheese."

  1. Mix the cream cheese with the cilantro in a bowl, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat one-quarter of the butter in a well-seasoned omelet pan or 8 inch non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. When the butter is hot and bubbling, swirl it around in the pan.
  3. Just before the butter begins to brown, beat 2 of the eggs and pour into pan. Lower the heat.
  4. After 10 seconds or so, the omelet will coagulate. Push the omelet to one side of the pan with a spoon or spatula, and let the raw egg run over the cleared skillet. Repeat this one more time, then take the skillet off the heat.
  5. Dab one quarter of the herbed cream cheese along the middle of the omelet from one side to the other. Season the omelet with additional salt and pepper to taste. If it has not completely set, place the pan over medium heat for a half minute longer. When the omelet is set, slide it from the pan onto a plate so that the omelet rolls up and the herbed cream cheese runs along the length of the roll. Serve it right away. Make three more omelets the same way, making sure the pan and butter get good and hot before adding the beaten eggs. Serve each one as soon as it is cooked.

cilantro doesn't seem to blend well with rich foods-- i would recommend substituting sliced scallions

This was truly delicious ~ but then again most foods with enough fat in them are! This would work equally nicely with Neufchatel (30+% less fat). I did try this with cilantro; it was so very goo...

With cilantro, I didn't enjoy this omelet very much... too "herby" or something. But it is REALLY good to start with the cream cheese and add chives and some smoked salmon! Yum.

I just made this for breakfast using Aloette herbed cream cheese. How simple. I didn't have to mix up anything. I just put a couple of tablespoons into the omlet (after I flipped it over -- I al...
