141.6…Smoked Salmon Frittata

This morning I hosted a Stella & Dot party at my house. I do it every year and it’s a perfect way for me to have an excuse to buy beautiful jewelry and to try new breakfast recipes!

Alicia recommended this recipe for Smoked Salmon Frittata to me. When she told me it was a Barefoot Contessa recipe, I knew it would be fabulous. IT WAS!

Smoked Salmon Frittata (Serves 8)

Recipe slightly adapted from Barefoot Contessa

1/2 medium onion, diced
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
12 extra-large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
4 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 pound smoked salmon, chopped
3 scallions, chopped, white and light green parts
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Sauté the onion and butter in a 10-inch oven-proof omelet pan over medium-low heat until translucent, about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add the heavy cream, goat cheese, smoked salmon, scallions, dill, salt, and pepper and combine. Pour the mixture over the onions and place the omelet pan in the center of the oven. Bake the frittata for about 50 minutes, until it puffs and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve hot directly from the pan.

Last night’s dinner was Creamy Macaroni (I promise the recipe is coming) leftovers as well as the rest of the Dole BBQ Ranch salad leftovers. Random dinner.

Before my party this morning I had a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios to hold me over until party time.

After the party, I picked the kiddos up from school, took my son to an event and now we are finally home! Looking forward to a quiet night at home.
