I first had this simple frittata at a friend’s who was watching her carb and fat intake. She made hers with 1 whole egg and two whites, and that’s how I make mine now. The single yolk still gives the eggs lots of color and flavor. The smoked salmon makes it lush and celebratory, and the cream cheese and dill offset the salmon perfectly. Serve it with a burst of citrus on the side for a surprisingly quick breakfast.

Recipe: Smoked Salmon Frittata + Orange

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 oz. plain cream cheese (light, if desired)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 oz. smoked salmon slices
  • 1/3 navel orange
 
  1. Break a whole egg into a small bowl. Add another 2 egg whites to the bowl, then mix well.
  2. Cut cream cheese into small pieces and add to egg mixture. Add fresh dill and stir to mix.
  3. Set a small non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Add oil, then swirl to spread it to the whole surface.
  4. Add egg mixture and cook until lightly set, about a minute and a half. Flip over and cook another minute, then slide onto serving plate. Top with slices of smoked salmon.
  5. Serve frittata with orange slices, if desired.
