Smoked salmon is not something I grew up eating. Honestly until a year ago I never tried it. Which is funny because I will eat raw salmon on sushi like it’s going out of style. Anyone want to do a meet up over sushi?? I suddenly have a craving!! Ok back to this dish. Smoked salmon, I guess I figured it wouldn’t be good, but boy was I wrong. It adds a smokey flavor without being “too fishy” and it works perfectly as the star of the show in this frittata. It’s also great as an appetizer, check out these simple smoked salmon cucumber bites that would be perfect for holiday entertaining!

Frittatas and egg bakes, why do I love them so? Well let’s just admit it, time is a valuable resource we don’t seem to have enough of. And healthy eating is often the first thing to go from our list of priorities because it can take so much time. I mean who has time to make a meal from scratch every single day, let alone breakfast! Well that shouldn’t mean boring or even worse unhealthy breakfast (I’m looking at you donuts)! When I have time I like to make egg white collard wraps, pancakes, or easy egg white kale wraps. When I know I’m going to be rushing out the door though (ahem everyday), I like to make crustless quiche, overnight oats on Sunday afternoon to help me get through the week. All of these dishes can be made ahead of time and just popped in the microwave, eaten cold in the car while driving to work, or at room temperature. That’s how you keep being busy out of the equation when you want to eat healthy.

I have put together healthy, gluten free meal plans to help people who are trying to eat healthy but just can’t seem to find the time. I get it. If you are trying to make breakfast, lunch and dinner from scratch, heck even one of these from scratch everyday, you are quickly going to find yourself out of time and likely discouraged. But I want you to dominate your healthy living lifestyle. So I created a meal plan that you can download for free that you can use to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the entire week. You will find simple recipes that are not only healthy, but they are tasty too! I have had so many positive reviews on these meal plans, it makes me so happy to know I’m helping other people reach their goals by providing them this resource. Make sure you download your free meal plan now! It’s updated with calories and macronutrients for each meal, to help you achieve your goals, without any of the headache.

I am planning to make this for my family. Does smoked salmon have sugar? My son and wife are doing 30 day elimination diet. Also what size carton of egg whites do you use? My store had 250 and 500g sizes. Thank you

You will need to read the ingredients of smoked salmon packages. There are sugar free versions (one is sold at Trader Joe's). In response to the egg white carton size, you could use either size, you just may need to cook it longer with the larger size.

I am not a fan of smoked salmon, but I should give it another try. Fritattas are the best because you can out whatever you have in the refrigerator.

I LOVE frittatas! I like putting kale and turkey in mine! I think smoked salmon would taste absolutely delicious in this!
