Salmon, Cream Cheese & Vegetable Omelet

I love bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon. But this past Saturday I wanted to make something slightly more elaborate for breakfast. At first I thought of making an English muffin sandwich with cream cheese, smoked salmon and a poached egg, but certain people don't like poached eggs...fine :)

Instead I made Salmon, Cream Cheese & Vegetable Omelet.




Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 large white onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
4 eggs
a few splashes of milk
smoked salmon
1 tablespoon capers
spinach leaves, cut into strips
cream cheese
salt & pepper
English muffins, toasted


Directions
1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan. Saute onions and peppers till they soften and slightly brown.
2. Whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg/milk mixture over the eggs and let it set.
3. When the eggs are almost set, top them them smoked salmon, spinach, capers and dollops of cream cheese. Cover and cook for 2 minutes.
4. Serve with toasted English muffins.

Delicious! You can make the same omelet with added tomatoes, olives, zucchini or any other vegetables. This will be good served at room temperature for brunch.

My son will love to have omelette with smoke salmon, the capers will make him crazy. he loves capers so much, that he puts this little berries thing on most of his cooking. So, I have piles of capers in my pantry, it a must according to him. I'll show him this recipe!

We assumed all the good stuff would be mixed into this omelette, but it's kinda cool to sprinkle everything on top, so nothing sinks to the bottom.

That looks really good Olga! I bet the capers were a nice touch too!

Oooo, that so looks worth the wait (as in the time you kept me waiting for this to be posted...lol) It looks lovely! It's like a giant bagel but without the bagel... sort of.. It must have tasted fantastic!

I had my first salmon omelet at a breakfast nook a couple weekends ago & loved it! It had goat cheese instead of cream. Yours looks delicious! I like the capers addition too :)

Have a great time in Chicago! I actually rented a car when I went there, but it seems that as long as you go to a hot dog stand with "Vienna" hot dogs, you will do well by Chicago standards. You definitely need to get all the toppings (sans ketchup) and the poppy seed bun. There is a Portillo's in downtown Chicago that is easily accessible by public transportation, and they have great hot dogs and Italian beef. Hot Doug's (my fave) is not as easily accessible though, as the people that I was waiting in line with actually took a cab to get there. SuperDawg seemed like it was almost in a suburban area. You might check out if Wiener's Circle is easy to get to, it was in a cute, college-looking neighborhood. But definitely, Portillo's is on the "El" line, I think.
