Salmon Omelet

    Smoked salmon is great in the morning with just butter and toast, but you can also use it to make a great omelet. Add some cream cheese and you’re in for a real treat. This good looking salmon omelet is also nutritious enough to keep you energized in the morning.

    I feel like there is a big dispute surrounding omelets and how to make them fluffy or just healthy. Everything counts: the amount of oil you use, the size of the pan, the “extras”, when you decide to put the salt, how you beat the eggs… literally everything.

    For our omelet we decided to melt a little butter in the pan for the taste. Also, do you how many calories a tablespoon of olive oil has? (119 calories of good fat, I googled). And butter gives omelets a nice taste, subtle buttery flavor. Then, mix a little bit of cream cheese with the eggs, add smoked salmon, and throw everything in the pan. This recipe is so easy to make, and you all know I love to simplify my work, especially in the mornings.

    Next, serve your omelet with fresh cream cheese and fresh herbs. You will not need another salmon omelet, this is the best.
