smoked salmon & eggs

Not everyone likes breakfast foods for dinner, but Ido. In fact, Ilove eating breakfast foods at dinnertime.

Recently, I made an egg and lox frittata.Served with a beautiful fruit salad (inspired by Jewel Box Salad in the Best Lunchbox Evercookbook by fellow RD @katie morford), mixed greens and a whole wheat bialy, the egg and lox frittata made a high-protein, nutrient-rich meal. I sauteed a chopped onion and added scrambled egg whites (with a yolk or two) with pieces of light cream cheese and smoked salmon. Once the egg was cooked through,I finished in the pre-heated oven for a couple of minutes and paired with sliced avocado. Although you can’t tell by this photo (the light was not cooperating!), the meal was beautiful, delicious and simple!

Although Imade this for dinner, eggs and lox make a great weekend brunch. Who says you need to wait until dinner to get your seafood fix?
