By: Marge Perry & David Bonom

  • Yield: 2 Servings
  • Cuisine: French
  • Course: Breakfast


  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup thinly sliced assorted wild mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped leeks
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped tomato
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 ounces goat cheese, softened


  1. Combine the eggs, chives, 1/8 teaspoon of the salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the mushrooms, leeks, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally until lightly brown, about 6 minutes. Add the tomato and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add the butter, stirring occasionally until melted.
  3. Pour in the egg mixture. Use a spatula to push the cooked egg towards the center, tilting the skillet in a circular motion to allow uncooked egg to flow to the outside.
  4. Cook 4 minutes or until eggs are no longer runny. Flip the omelet over and place the goat cheese on one half. Cook 2 minutes then fold half the omelet over the goat cheese and slide onto a plate; cut into 2 halves and serve.
