I am a huge lover of breakfast and eggs are always on the menu.  To change things up a bit – try this Salmon Frittata recipe…all the yummy goodness of quiche without the crust!

Total TIme: 25 minutes – Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz fresh asparagus tips
  • 4 oz package of smoked salmon
  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 1/4 cup dried tarragon

Directions:

Preheat large sauce pan on medium-high heat for 3 minutes.  While heating, cut asparagus into bite-sized pieces.  Remove skin from salmon and cut into bite-sized pieces.  Place butter in saucepan, along with potatoes, onions, asparagus and salt.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.  Stir often.  Add salmon and cover.  Cook for 5 more minutes or until potatoes are tender and browned, stirring as needed.

Pour eggs evenly over salmon mixture.  Sprinkle tarragon and cheese on top, but do not stir.  Cover and reduce heat to low and cook 8-10 minutes.  Frittata is done when eggs are puffy and bottom is golden brown.  Serve immediately.
