AmberBreakfast, Main, Vegetarian Friendly4 Comments


This frittata in particular is my dad’s and my favorite. Its my smoked salmon and goat cheese frittata with fragrant herbs. YES, IT IS AS GOOD AS IT SOUNDS! I actually made this on Food Network Star Kids… the judges loved it and I know you guys will too. It’s the perfect breakfast, brunch or lunch if you want something easy and packed with flavor.

It filled with smokey salmon, tangy and creamy goat cheese, fluffy moist eggs and fragrant herbs which makes it TO DIE FOR! One of the things I love most about this recipe is it incorporates salmon and the salmon here in Seattle is fantastic. Secondly, it has fresh herbs that I can just harvest from my herb garden. Its perfect!

I really hope you guys try this recipe, and if you want to, you can even switch up the ingredients and create your own frittata flavor combos! If you do, let me know in the comments or send me a picture!

Enjoy and I will see you in my next video!

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 ounces/55 g goat cheese
  • 2 ounces/55 g smoked salmon flaked
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375ºF/190°C.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, dill, salt, pepper, and chives in a bowl. Using two spoons or your fingers, separate the goat cheese into small clumps. Fold the goat cheese and salmon into the egg mixture.
  3. Heat the oil in a 10-inch/25.5 cm nonstick, oven-safe skillet over medium-low heat. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and stir lightly to make sure the filling is evenly distributed in the pan. Cook until the bottom is set but not browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the center is no longer jiggly and the edges are golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven, cover, and set aside for 5 minutes.
  5. Take a butter knife and run it along the edges of the pan to make sure the frittata isn’t sticking, and then slide the frittata onto a large plate. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature with a simple green salad or sliced tomatoes.

  1. Kippered salmon is yummy and can be ideal when served using a mild raspberry vinaigrette mixed green salad topped using fresh or dried cranberries. Also you are able to follow with the kippered salmon steaks with garlic mashed potatoes, couscous, or wild rice. Vegetables to go with the dish may consist of seared asparagus, steamed broccoli, or blanched greens.I create this recipe at every saturday and sunday. . !
