  1. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Heat a 6-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour egg mixture into the hot skillet, tilting so egg mixture covers the entire bottom of skillet. Slowly cook egg mixture until set, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Arrange small dollops of cream cheese onto half the omelet; sprinkle tomato and chives over cream cheese. Fold omelet in half over the fillings. Remove skillet from heat and cover until cream cheese has softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

So quick and so simple, yet so tasty! Even without the chives. I think it's going to be my quick side dish no.1 replacing gone off scrambled eggs.

This is a pretty omelet (see photo) but was just ok. I feel like it needed something salty added to it like capers, or I'll bet smoked salmon would be amazing. It just needs something to balance out the slight sweetness of the cream cheese. I would make it again with those additions. Thanks for posting!

It was way to creamy for me! I would use more egg and less cream cheese.

Delish! My family was getting very sick of scrambled eggs, but I like having eggs for lunch once a week. This recipe made all of us happy. Go easy on the cream cheese - 1.5 T. is more than enough for two eggs.

This was SO good! I wasn't so sure about the cream cheese but it turned out great! I also used chopped onion instead of chives and added ham, bacon, and cheese to it. The ham and bacon were really good mixed with the cream cheese. This is definitely on my list to make for breakfast. It was fast and delicious!

I love to make this with fresh tomatoes and chives from the garden. Creamy & Delicious!

This was amazing! I can't have tomatoes so I just did the cream cheese and chives with veggies on the side. I also added a bit of garlic (1 clove) to the egg mixture. I'm a garlic fiend! Delicious!
