Easy Smoked Salmon Omelet
Our simple, no-fuss method takes the fear out of making omelets.
Why This Recipe Works
Omelets are well-known diner staples but can be a challenge to make well at home. Our goal for our easy omelet was to take the guesswork out of omelet making. We started by spraying a 10-inch nonstick skillet with some vegetable oil spray—this ensured that our omelet would come out of the skillet easily. After stirring the eggs until large curds formed, we briefly tilted the skillet to allow any uncooked egg to run around the pan and finished by letting the omelet cook undisturbed until just set. Our last step was to add softened cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers, and chives and let the omelet sit in the pan, covered, until the cheese was melted. This gave us a tender, cheesy omelet worthy of any diner.
