Cream Cheese and Jelly "Egg" Roll

Serves: 1

Lavender, mint, and strawberries add sophisticated flavor to this sweet egg dish that tastes like spring.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons butter, optional
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh culinary lavender (or dry Herbs de Provence)
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup strawberry jelly or preserves


  1. Whisk together eggs and milk.
  2. Melt butter in an 8-inch omelet pan with Teflon™ nonstick coating.
  3. Pour in egg mixture once the butter is lightly browned. As the edges stiffen, lift with a spatula so the raw egg flows to the pan's bottom.
  4. Give pan a quick shake. When egg is almost cooked and but still jiggles a little bit, add the cheese, sugar, herbs, strawberries.
  5. Cook 1 minute longer or until top is still a little soft.
  6. Dollop with preserves and then roll up.
  7. Remove to plate. Garnish with herbs and a dusting of powdered sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.
