Recipe Redux: Mini smoked salmon frittatas

April Showers bring May….showers. 

Not talking that wet weather we all so desperately wish away during the month of April but talking about the kind of showers that bring so much joy. Bridal, baby, grad parties, you name it. Lucky for me, these here showers usually coincide with my favorite meal ever. Brunch. 

That’s why this month, Recipe Redux is featuring delicious brunch dishes, fit for a shower.

I’m typically a savory brunch girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sweets but I usually crave some sort of protein-packed dish with eggs to get me through the afternoon. In keeping with savory protein dishes, I opted to make a frittata. But since we’re in shower season, we went mini with these bad boys.

Mini Smoked Salmon Frittatas 

Ingredients:

1 tbsp EVOO

1/4 cup diced red onion

4oz smoked salmon, cut into 1/4in-thick pieces

8 eggs

2.5oz goat cheese

1/4c non-fat Greek yogurt 

1/4c half-and-half

2 scallions, sliced

1/8c chives

Salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a standard-size muffin tin. 

Heat olive oil in small pan and add onion, cooking for a few minutes, until softened. Remove from heat and add smoked salmon and salt and pepper to taste.

In a separate bowl, whisk together: eggs, goat cheese, yogurt, half-and-half, scallions, chives. Add in onion and smoked salmon and mix to combine. 

Fill each muffin tin about 3/4 full with egg mixture. Set muffin pan on middle rack and bake for 20-25 minutes.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of recipes with muffin cups. Your frittata recipe seems like the perfect treat for a brunch. I’m interning with the Meal Makeover Moms and I love reading all of these recipe redux blog posts.

  2. Kara! This is totally happening in my house. Love it.

  3. This reminds me that I haven’t had smoked salmon in ages and this recipe may be the thing that changes that.

  4. What a great idea for smoked salmon!

  5. So nearly did something very similar Kara! And was going to style my brunch with a glass of bubbly but had none left in the fridge. Love it.

  6. I love these! They are so easy to make and they taste amazing! I also love the versatility of them. You can pick and choose your favourite veggies!
