QUICK! Go get your grocery list!
Add cream cheese to the list.
It turns out there’s more than one good place to smear cream cheese.
Like a bagel? That’s one.
Cream cheese frosting? Why not.
For cheesecake? Getting my fork…
And how about into an omelet?
This fantastic cheese omelet idea is thanks to:
1.) the brick of cream I bought for a recipe but didn’t end up using
Take a small-ish hunk of cream cheese (or a big-ish hunk, I won’t tell) and mix it in with a little shredded cheese (pepper jack!) – and maybe the tiniest pour of half and half to help make it spread into some nearly cooked eggs. Fold those eggs over so the cheese gets all melty and warm. Then it’s time to welcome The Omelet of Your Dreams onto your plate.
Hello Creamy McDreamy,
I’ve been waiting for you.
Cream cheese in an omelet is so good that I’m at a loss for a metaphor because I can’t stop wiping the drool off my chin and out of my keyboard.
If you’ve got time and/or patience, dice up some onions and peppers or other omelet veggie favorites to include with this cream cheese masterpiece.
Or, if you’re not so good at the patience thing like me, just plop your some left over roasted vegetables on the side of your plate and call it lunch.
Call it dinner, or call it breakfast even! Brussels sprouts for breakfast? I am not afraid.
Seriously. Go make this right now. RIGHT NOW.
Don’t eat it at your computer though – not without a drool shield at least.
