What’s for Brunch? A Smoked Salmon Frittata

We used to enjoy having a Sunday brunch. It was a way to kiss the weekend and prepare for the work week ahead. We are both retired now and we have brunch any day of the week!

This dish is easy and delicious. It’s an easy frittata with capers inside, topped with a cream cheese spread and delicious smoked salmon. Served with greens and avocado – a delicious meal! There will be no leftovers.

Here’s How to Do it:

First, put the eggs, 1 Tablespoon of the whipped cream cheese, and a pinch of garlic salt into a large bowl and whisk until everything is fully incorporated. You can use a blender or emersion blender. I used a hand whisk. Next, gently stir in the capers.

Rub some oil in the bottom of a heavy casserole dish.

Pour the egg mixture in and bake at 350° for about 20 to 30 minutes.

The eggs will rise a little and get lightly browned on top as they cook. Poke it in the middle with a pick to test for doneness. If it’s done, the pick will come out clean when it’s done.

While it’s cooking, rub the greens with the oil and vinegar. I use my fingers and gently massage it.

Remove the frittata from the oven and let it cool 3 or 4 minutes.

While it’s cooling, mix the remaining whipped cream cheese with the cream and spread it over the top,

then add the salmon.

Finally, place some greens on the plate and top with a piece of frittata.

Add a little avocado and serve –  It’s brunch! I also used a little black lava finishing salt for flavor and presentation.
