Smoked Salmon and Chèvre Omelette

posted in: Breakfast | 0

If you know me, you know that I usually don’t east breakfast. I know i know…it’s the most important meal of the day. But growing up we simply didn’t have any time in the mornings. However, Selma loves breakfast so I’ve recently begun changing my shameful ways. Not surprisingly, this recipe is all Selma’s doing. I’m simply here to eat the food and blog about it (hard job, I know).

She recently stumbled across this recipe on another food blog and was dying to make it for breakfast so we went to the store and gathered up all of the ingredients. We subbed rosemary for parsley because we aren’t really huge fans of it. This omelette only requires a hand-full of fresh ingredients and is now one of our new breakfast staples. Plus, it only takes roughly 10 minutes to make so even when you have a busy day ahead, there’s really no excuse not to start it off right.

The recipe:

  • 1 cup smoked salmon, cut into 1/2″ strips
  • 2 radishes, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp rosemary, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp chevre (goat cheese)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Note: This recipe makes two omelettes.

Step 1: Combine the smoked salmon, radishes, rosemary and chevre into a small bowl and give everything a light toss.

Step 3: In a skillet over medium heat, melt your butter. When the butter has melted completely, pour in your eggs. Leave the eggs to cook over low heat. Refrain from flipping the eggs! You can also cover your eggs if you want at this point but it’s not necessary.

Step 4: Once the eggs are completely cooked, quickly add in your smoked salmon mixture to one side of the eggs and remove the pan from the heat. The worst thing you can do is overheat your smoked salmon.

Step 5: Gently fold the other half of the egg over and serve immediately.

The creaminess of the goat cheese mixes beautifully with the smokiness of the salmon. And the crunchiness of the radishes adds a nice crunchy contract to the dish. If you are a breakfast hater, this dish will change you.

And unlike the eggs from Nacho Libre, these eggs are packed with plenty of nutrients.

 

Thanks for reading and happy eating!
