Salmon Omelet - Feeding Myself Breakfasts – Part 2

Hash Browns, Gravy, And Eggs
Since the Amish Casserole didn’t use all of the package of hash browns and the pan was already dirty, I decided to go ahead and fry them up with some onions for later use and this day I had them for breakfast.  Since they were already fully cooked, I just gave them a quick fry in a hot pan to crisp up both sides.  After plating, I topped with some of the reheated sausage fond gravy and a couple of fried eggs.

I think the word awesome comes to mind for this breakfast.  I mixed the little gravy that was left with some dog food and the pups had a breakfast treat as well – I believe they thought it was awesome too.

Salmon, Spinach, And Cheddar Omelet

After two supper meals, I had one piece of salmon left and I decided to have it for breakfast.  I went on line and found this recipe from Fitness Magazine that included ingredients that I had on hand and needed to be used.  Since it was for two servings, I cut it in half to get the one below.

Salmon, Spinach, And Cheddar Omelet

½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
½ small clove garlic, finely chopped (about 1/2 tsp)
1½ cups baby spinach, packed (I ended up with about half this much)
S&P to taste
5 ounces cooked salmon, flaked (I nuked to warm it)
½ tablespoon unsalted butter
3 eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup grated cheddar cheese (I used sliced)

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the spinach and cook, tossing, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.
Season with S&P

1. In a small bowl, combine the spinach with the salmon. (I didn't do this)
2. Wipe out the skillet and melt the butter over medium-high heat. (I didn't do this either)
3. Season the eggs with salt and pepper. (I did this)

Note: I changed the cooking directions to suit the way I like to cook omelets.

4. Pour the eggs into the skillet and swirl the pan so they spread out and add a glass lid.
5. When the top is about set add the cheese to one half of the eggs, followed by the salmon and spinach and return the lid until the eggs have set on the other half.

6. Slide the omelet onto a plate, stuffed side first, and use the pan to fold the bare egg side over the filling as you do. Serve immediately.

It was outstanding and when you order a salmon omelet at my place you get salmon – the original recipe called for one ounce vs. my five ounces.  I might back off to three ounces but never to just one.  I think I’d also put cheese on both halves next time.  Maybe mine was really a salmon fillet with eggs wrapped around it.

  1. Nice that you are enjoying some tasty meal.
    The salmon omelette looked excellent

  2. My husband would especially dig the salmon omlette but you know me... I want the hash browns, gravy, and eggs! YUM!

  3. Larry, The breakfast King is back! The usurper has been dethroned... FYI, I've never made an omelet this way except for just when I fold the eggs over some sharp cheddar cheese for a sandwich. I'm guessing that my 'omelets' are really fluffy moist scrambled eggs with whatever ingredients I mix in. You'd called about Michigan on the 20th but we just got back from family visits tonight. If you're home we'll be here the rest of the week. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. That most certainly does look outstanding! And yay for the pups getting in on that action. I've got to make that Amish casserole. I've been looking at different recipes and they all seem to be the same.

  5. I am not surprised that you are doing a great job of feeding yourself while Bev is on vacation. I think my husband would have to survive on take out food :)


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
