3 large eggs, preferably organic
A dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
Chopped chives, for garnish 
Using a fork, beat the eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl until thoroughly mixed.
Heat butter in an 8-inch, nonstick skillet until hot and the foaming has subsided. Pour the egg mixture into the center of the pan and cook over medium heat, allowing the eggs to set and curl at the edges. Then, with the tines of your fork, stir the eggs so the runny part fills the areas between the set curds. When most of the eggs are set but still slightly liquid inside, the omelet is ready.
Fold the omelet in half. The outside should have a nice brown color. Invert onto a plate, garnish with chives and serve immediately.
