4
teaspoons butter or margarine
8
eggs, beaten
1/2
cup soft cream cheese with chives and onion
1
cup flaked smoked salmon
Chopped fresh chives, if desired
  1. In 8-inch omelet pan or skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the butter over medium-high heat until butter is hot and sizzling.
  2. Pour half of the beaten eggs (about 1 cup) into pan. As eggs begin to set at bottom and side, gently lift cooked portions with spatula so that thin, uncooked portion can flow to bottom. Avoid constant stirring. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup of the cream cheese in dollops evenly over omelet; sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the salmon. Tilt skillet and slip spatula under omelet to loosen. Remove from heat. Fold omelet in half; let stand 2 minutes. Transfer to serving plate; keep warm.
  4. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make second omelet. Cut each omelet crosswise in half to serve; sprinkle with chives.
