Dilled Salmon Omelets with Creme Fraiche

This is one of our biggest hits on our inn's menu. It has so much flavor with the dill and rich salmon that it will impress everyone at how fancy it is.—Susan Goodman, Wilmington, Vermont

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound salmon fillets, cooked and flaked
  • 3 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
  • 3/4 cup creme fraiche or sour cream

  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended.
  • For each omelet, in an 8-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, melt 1 teaspoon butter over medium heat. Pour 1/2 cup egg mixture into the pan. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup salmon, 1/2 cup cheese and 1 teaspoon snipped dill. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. Cook until eggs are nearly set.

    For lower fat and cholesterol :Use one egg :one white ratio , 6 eggs and 6 egg whites in this recipe.-Even less “yolks” when Doctor or your Dietician suggest..Use 1% fat milk instead of full fat milk.Use pan spray onstead of butter.Use “Greek style yogurt” instead of Creme FraicheMade this way with no complaints, and happier arteries!Wonderful combination of flavors...A few fresh diced tomatoes in the filling change the taste to "garden fresh" and lowers the calorie count as well. (Different not better.)

    I would definitely make this again, but not when my third son is home, as he is deathly allergic to seafood. It is good though, and definitely a keeper.
