Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Omelet

Having recently jumped on the Atkins diet bandwagon, in order to lose the ridiculous amount of weight I gained when I quit smoking and discovered that many of the so-called Atkins diet recipes are actually bait to sell you some sort of carbohydrate substitute – I have decided to share a few of my own recipes. This is my first one – a breakfast recipe – although, I don’t see why you couldn’t eat this any time of the day – a smoked salmon and cream cheese omelet. This is really simple – but the tricks to a good omelet are – a non stick pan – I always use a well seasoned cast iron skillet, and to cook it slowly.

These are the ingredients:

  • 3 medium eggs
  • splash of heavy cream
  • one triangle laughing cow cream cheese (Kraft would probably do or Philadelphia)
  • one small slice of smoked salmon
  • dash salt and freshly ground pepper
  • big knob of butter to cook with

As you can see – nothing complicated here.

First – add the knob of butter top your skillet and turn the heat to low (if you do not have a cast iron skillet – go buy one, but in the meantime any non stick fry pan will do).

Second – while the butter is melting, break the eggs into a bowl, add the splash of cream and a dash of salt and pepper and whisk.

Third – when the butter is melted, tip the skillet so that the pan is completely covered with butter, make sure the skillet is hot evenly and add the egg mixture.

Fourth – while the eggs are cooking, (remember – low heat) slice the cream cheese and salmon into small pieces and add to the omelet – one side only – we will be folding this over to cover them after wards. Add them as the eggs are hardening, but still runny on top – it should look something like this:

When the eggs are fully cooked – fold the omelet over, cut in half and serve – see photo at top.  Bon Apetit!
