Elizabeth here, friends! I am so excited to bring to you a breakfast recipe! A nice breakfast at home is one of my favorite ways to start the day. I love throwing on my favorite robe and just being lazy on a Sunday morning. Life moves so quickly sometimes and it is so important to just pause and enjoy the little things. I usually start the morning with a nice cup of coffee from my french press and take a tour through my fridge and see what I can whip up. I’ll throw on my favorite music and just turn off my brain for a few hours, it’s great and I highly recommend it after a stressful week.This time of year is a little funky when it comes to finding produce so I love bringing out some secret weapons that still leave you with a trip to flavor town. Smoked salmon is a secret weapon that I keep in my fridge for just this occasion. Now, I know a smoked salmon omelette may not be your typical ‘bacon and cheddar cheese’ but it’s delish and totally worth a try! The combo of smoked salmon and creamy dill sauce is a melt-in-your-mouth bite. Now pour yourself a wine sized glass mimosa and just enjoy the morning.
Smoked Salmon Omelette
2 Whole eggs + 1 Egg white
1 Tablespoon of half&half or milk
1 Teaspoon of salt + 1/2 Teaspoon of pepper
2 Ounces of smoked salmon
Thinly sliced red onions
Dill Cream Sauce
3 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
2 Heaping tablespoons of cream cheese
1 Tablespoon of fresh dill chopped
1 Tablespoon of milk
1 Tablespoon of chopped chives
1/2 Teaspoon of salt + 1/2 Teaspoon of pepper
1. In a small bowl whisk together whole eggs, egg whites, milk, salt & pepper until light and fluffy. Spray or grease a non stick pan with butter or non stick spray.
2. On low-medium heat pour in your egg mixture. As your omelette begins to cook pick up your pan and swirl in a counter clockwise direction to cook the runny part of your omelette that rests in the center. The heat from the sides of the pan will cook your omelette evenly without burning.
3. Add in a thin layer of dill cream sauce and top with smoked salmon, red onions, and fresh dill. Flip omelette and service with more sauce + avocado (optional).
Dill Cream Sauce: In a small sauce pan melt butter on low heat until fragrant and liquid. Add in cream cheese and whisk together until melted and the butter and cream cheese have married together. Add in herbs and serve. *If sauce is too thick add in milk a tablespoon at a time to thin.
