Smoked Salmon Omelet

Omelet with Lox

This recipe only makes one omelet because you really can’t make more than one at a time. If you are serving several for brunch, make them all beforehand. Warm the prepared omelets on a greased sheet pan in the oven, warming drawer or on a hot plate.

  • 2Servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 5 large eggs, beaten
  • 4 tablespoon Temp Tee Whipped Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 3 ounce thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • Matzah or everything bagel, optional


1. Heat olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook 4 to 6 minutes or until tender.

2. Whisk together eggs, cream cheese, salt and pepper.

3.  Add eggs to the pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until just set in the center, tilting the skillet and lifting the edges of omelet with a spatula to let uncooked portion run out to edges.

4. Sprinkle with chives and capers and lay salmon over half of the omelet. Using a spatula, fold the omelet half, without the salmon, over the half with salmon to enclose it, and slide the omelet onto a plate.

5. Cut in half crosswise and serve with matzah and cream cheese or an open faced bagel with cream cheese.
