Smoked Salmon Egg Frittata (Gluten Free and Delicious)

Smoked Salmon Egg Frittata

Eggs-tremely delicious is the only way to describe this recipe! I know, I am so punny 😉 A smoked salmon egg frittata is a surefire way to blow the minds of your house guests…or maybe just your spouse! I posted the picture above on instagram this week and as promised a recipe to follow!

When JJ and I went grocery shopping this past weekend we had a list (because let’s be honest I’m the Sassy Dietitian) but when I ran to go grab some coconut milk I came back to find him holding some smoked salmon in his hands (not on said list) and that adorable puppy dog look like “can we get this, please!” JJ is a fish lover and he did not have to ask me twice, for $4 and tons of omega 3 fats, how could I say no?! Move over fish oil pills!

So when we got home I decided we needed to find a way to use the salmon immediately because it was staring us in the face and knowing JJ he would have eaten the whole package when I turned my back 😉

Enter this amazingly SIMPLE egg frittata (an Italian word for egg dish/crustless quiche) jam packed with healthy fats (from the egg yolk, olive oil and salmon), vitamins galore and antioxidants! This multivitamin slash fish oil non-pill is way tastier than any Flinstones chewable…I promise you…and the fish burps are minimal 😉 So say hello to health and deliciousness!

I decided to top the frittata with goat cheese because I had some leftover from bacon wrapped stuffed dates (should I post that?!)….I think it would taste delicious cooked in the frittata but with JJ’s lactose intolerance I did not want to be selfish and make the frittata for only me! (note: some people who have a lactose intolerance actually have an EASIER time with goat cheese, so give it a try!)
