Square white plate with an omelette filled with salmon and cream cheese.

Salmon, Spinach, and Dill Cream Cheese

Salmon and dill are a classic combination, so why wouldn’t you put them in an omelette? This is the kind of breakfast that is super easy to prepare but is a little more extravagant than your average day-starter.

Keep this one in the back pocket for a special occasion.

This is the perfect use for the salmon trimmings you have leftover from that not-quite-perfectly shaped filet you had last night.

This is all about the filling. Make the physical omelette in any style you like.

Amounts are not exact, just suggestions. These recipes are general guidelines roughly aimed towards single egg, individual portions unless otherwise mentioned. Adjust as necessary. Play around. Have fun.

Season everything to taste with salt and pepper.

Disclaimer: Though unlikely, eating undercooked eggs can cause illness.
