Salmon and Cream Cheese Frittata

So, I had a can of salmon, a bunch of eggs, and a need to make a dinner that 1) I could take to work for lunch the next day (non-kosher/meat products aren’t allowed there) and 2) could also have for dinner the next evening since my hubby would be working late. I also had some chives, and decided, hey, maybe I could make something with these ingredients. I did. And it was tasty - and held up very well over the following 2 days.


  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 oz, Cream Cheese
  • 5 oz, Atlantic Salmon (Canned In Water), drained
  • ½ cup Low-fat Half & Half
  • 4 g, Chives - Raw
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9" pie pan. Drain your can of salmon (or cook your salmon filet if you’re much fancier than I am) and crumble it at the bottom of the dish. Break up the cream cheese and arrange the chunks on top of the salmon. Chop up your chives into desired size. In a small-medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half & half, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and chives until nice and frothy. Pour the egg mixture over the salmon and cream cheese. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes until set. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Alternate directions: If you have a skillet that is oven-safe, and want to make this more of a “true” frittata, you can follow these directions. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a non-stick skillet and heat on medium-low heat. In a small-medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half & half, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and chives until nice and frothy. Drain the salmon and crumble into a large bowl. Break up the cream cheese into chunks and mix together with the salmon. Fold the egg mixture into the salmon and cream cheese bowl until everything is mixed together.

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, and stir lightly to spread the filling around evenly in the pan. Cook until the bottom is set, but not brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the top is set, about 8-10 minutes minutes. Remove from the oven, cover, and set aside for 5 minutes. You can then invert the frittata onto a plate and cut it into wedges.

É que eu nunca pensei que eu fosse encontrar alguém como você. Uma pessoa que conseguisse arrancar meus sorrisos até nos meus momentos de tristeza. Nunca pensei que encontraria alguém que me aturasse como você faz. Nunca pensei que encontraria um amigo de verdade como você. Uma pessoa que… Me faz tão bem. E tenho tanto medo de te perder. Você é o que eu sempre quis. Sabe… Você é o meu melhor amigo… E é o meu anjo(mwti para cdug)
