  1. Whisk the Eggs: Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them together until the yolks and whites are well combined. Season with a pinch of salt and a dash of black pepper.

  2. Prep the Filling: Take the Boursin cheese out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for easier spreading.

  3. Heat the Pan: Place a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter. Allow the butter to melt and coat the pan evenly.

  4. Pour the Eggs: Once the butter is sizzling, pour the whisked eggs into the pan. Allow them to cook undisturbed for a few seconds until they start to set around the edges.

  5. Swirl and Cook: Gently push the cooked edges towards the center of the pan using a spatula, tilting the pan to let the uncooked egg flow to the edges. Continue doing this until the eggs are mostly set but still slightly runny on top.

  6. Add the Cheese: Spoon the room temperature Boursin cheese onto one half of the omelette. Using the spatula, carefully fold the other half of the omelette over the cheese-filled side.

  7. Cook Through: Let the omelette cook for another minute or so, allowing the Boursin cheese to melt and the omelette to fully set. If you prefer a slightly runny center, you can reduce the cooking time.

  8. Slide onto Plate: Once the omelette is cooked to your liking, gently slide it onto a plate. Be careful while sliding to avoid breaking the omelette.

  9. Garnish: If desired, sprinkle chopped fresh chives and some additional fresh herbs (such as parsley or thyme) on top of the omelette for added flavor and presentation.

  10. Serve: Serve the Boursin Cheese and Herb Omelette immediately while it's still hot and the cheese is gooey and flavorful.

Note: Cooking times can vary depending on the stove and the size of the pan. Keep a close eye on the omelette to ensure it doesn't overcook.
