The classic cheese for an omelette au fromage is Gruyère or Emmentaler. If you use another cheese it is no longer omelette au fromage but, for example, omelette au camembert.

In place of the chicken liver filling (steps 1 and 2), place 2 to 3 rounded tablespoons (about 1 ounce) of grated Swiss-style cheese, such as Gruyère or Emmentaler, across the center of the omelet before folding.
