Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • 4

    large eggs, beaten to blend, divided

  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

  • 4

    tablespoons ricotta, divided

  • 2

    tablespoons grated Parmesan, divided

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped fresh chives, divided

  • Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette:

  • 1

    pint cherry tomatoes

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1

    shallot, finely chopped

  • 1

    tablespoon (or more) red wine vinegar

  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions

Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette: Cut half of cherry tomatoes in half. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add halved and whole tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to release juices, 4–6 minutes. Mash some of tomatoes with a spoon. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or room temperature; add chives just before serving. DO AHEAD: Vinaigrette can be made (without chives) 2 days ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature and stir in chives. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season eggs with salt and pepper. Add half of eggs to skillet. Cook eggs, stirring gently with a heatproof silicone spatula, until eggs are lightly scrambled and almost cooked, about 3 minutes. Spread eggs evenly to cover bottom of skillet. Top eggs with half of ricotta, Parmesan, basil, and chives. Using spatula, fold up one-third of omelet. Roll omelet over onto itself, then slide omelet onto a plate. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make a second omelet. Top with Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette.
