The result is a custardy, even-colored omelet that makes for the most freshbreakfast.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, using a rubber spatula, mash the goat cheese with the measured herbs and set it aside.

  2. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until yolks and whites are evenly mixed. Place in a serving dish.

  3. Melt butter in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until fluffy. Add the egg mixture and stir constantly with a rubber spatula until small clumps form about 2 to 3 minutes.
    Gently shake the pan and spread the egg mixture evenly in the pan with the spatula - the top of the eggs should be creamy.
    Remove pan from heat. Using the spatula, fold one-third of the omelet over itself. Gently push the folded side of the omelet toward the edge of the pan. Turn the pan over onto the serving platter and roll the tortilla seam side down onto the platter.
    Garnish with more herbs and serve immediately.

Notes

 If you want to make a larger omelet, use a 10 to 12-inch pan (depending on the number of eggs).  Do not flip the omelet like a pancake, just fold it in half. A larger omelet is more fragile and may break.

After being folded in the middle, the eggs continue to cook while the cheese melts.
For all the goat cheese lovers, this omelet is for you.
