Chive blossoms give a delicate onion flavor to a simple omelet. It is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or a light dinner.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons minced chives
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • About a dozen or so chive blossoms, gently washed and dried


Melt the butter in a frying pan. Combine eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and chives in a blender and pour into the hot, buttered pan. As the edges of the omelet begin to set, reduce the heat somewhat and with a spatula turn the uncooked eggs to the bottom of the skillet until they are all cooked.

Sprinkle the washed chive blossoms across the top of the eggs and then fold the omelet over and let cook another few minutes. Serve.

Yield: 2 servings
