Creamy Boursin Omelette

My daughter, Zoe, got us hooked on Boursin® Vermont White Cheddar & Sage Spread. It claims to be a sophisticated take on cheddar. A hint of delicately earthy sage balances the tangy sharpness of real Vermont Cheddar.

I went to the market with my husband and he bought some. The lady working the check out said she LOVES this cheese and puts it in her scrambled eggs.  Well, isn’t that a nice idea!?  I’m probably one of the few people who would come home from the market and make something the check out lady likes.

So, I went on the Boursin site and found this omelette recipe, though you could just throw some in your scramble. Sorry about the blurry photo, I was hungry and didn’t take my time!

Creamy Boursin Omelette

3 Tbs Boursin Cheese, flavor of your choice
1 Tbs butter
2 large eggs
1 green onion, chopped
salt & pepper to taste

Melt butter in small non-stick skillet set over medium-high heat. In small bowl, beat eggs and green onions.

Pour eggs into heated skillet, swirling eggs around pan. With spatula, gently draw egg mixture away from sides of skillet into the center, allowing egg mixture to flow towards sides of skillet. When eggs are just about set, season with salt & pepper.

Drop bits of Boursin Cheese onto half of omelette. With spatula, gently flip the omelette in half, keeping cheese-side down. Cook for another minute or until Boursin is melted and omelette is golden brown.

Tip : Add your favorite chopped vegetables. Garnish top of omelette with chopped fresh green onions or crumbled bacon.

  1. Go check out lady! Back here in the old country, we can’t get anything nearly as sophisticated as your fancy Boursin, so I have to make due with the normal stuff. Your check out lady is right . . . it’s great with eggs and is also really good melted into a jacket potato or in a pimped up mash.

  2. I do pimp up my mash and also ready made pizzas. A girl’s gotta have some fun, right? It’s an art form (obviously) and you and Shannon are both invited to come and try it out any time you want!
