Smoked Salmon Frittata

This Smoked Salmon Frittata could also be called “Everything-but-the-bagel” frittata - smoked salmon, red onion, spinach, tangy cheese, and everything bagel seasoning enveloped in fluffy eggs - it’s all here, except for the bagel!

I make some version of a frittata once a week. It’s an efficient and easy way to use up a wide assortment of leftover veggies and cheeses to clean out the fridge, and a quick meal prep idea for breakfasts for the week. Sometimes I make a large frittata such as this, using a large skillet, and sometimes I make mini frittatas in a muffin pan. Either way gets the job done!

This Smoked Salmon Frittata is one of my favorite ingredient combinations. I love that it takes a small amount of a special ingredient - smoked salmon - and makes it stretch for a crowd. And it makes it feel elegant and fancy for a springtime brunch spread! But it’s equally appropriate for a relaxed weekend brunch at home. 

Try this Smoked Salmon Frittata for your next brunch! Serve it up with some fresh fruit, pastries, and hot coffee, and your guests will be super impressed and satisfied.

Stages of preparing the Smoked Salmon Frittata
Sauce the red onions, then add the spinach until just barely wilted. Scatter in the smoked salmon chunks, pour the egg mixture in the skillet, top with feta cheese crumbles, and bake the frittata until golden and set in the center. Top with everything bagel seasoning, then slice and serve!

I don't normally comment on recipes but this has got to be the best thing I've ever made. It came together pretty easy and made five meals - perfect for meal prep for the week. I already can't wait to make it again.
