Every healthy brunch spread needs a frittata! They are one of my favorite egg dishes for brunch, including shakshuka. As a Registered Dietitian, I love that you can pack a ton of nutritious ingredients into frittatas – like smoked salmon and vegetables! This one is paired with creamy, tangy goat cheese, which totally has lox and cream cheese vibes.

This smoked salmon and vegetable frittata is super flavorful and packed with protein, thanks to whole eggs, smoked salmon, Greek yogurt, and goat cheese. So if you are wondering what to do with smoked salmon (besides put it on a bagel), you have to try this frittata recipe!

I prefer to make baked frittatas in the oven instead of on the stovetop. Overall, it takes a bit more time, but it’s completely hands off time while it bakes up. The results? A perfectly tender, fluffy frittata every time!

This smoked salmon frittata is easy to make and serves 4-6. You can easily double the recipe to feed a crowd!

Ingredients in smoked salmon frittata

Here is everything you need to make this recipe:

  • Eggs
  • Smoked salmon
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Goat cheese
  • White onion
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Dill
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Kitchen tools needed: You’ll need a whisk, a mixing bowl, and a ceramic or glass baking dish for this recipe.

How to make a baked frittata in the oven

Oven baked frittatas are easy to make, even for beginners!

  1. Start by cooking the vegetables on the stovetop. This helps the veggies release a lot of water, so they don’t release the water into the frittata while cooking. Set them aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, plain Greek yogurt, and a pinch of salt and pepper until well combined. Adding Greek yogurt helps make the frittata texture fluffier and creamier!
  3. To the whisked egg mixture, add the cooked vegetables, pieces of smoked salmon, goat cheese crumbles, and chopped dill. Gently stir to combine.
  4. Spray a 10.5″ x 7.5″ ceramic baking dish with spray oil. Pour the egg mixture into the prepared dish.
  5. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. You’ll know the frittata is done cooking when the edges begin to brown and peel away from the pan, and the center of the frittata is firm yet bounces back to the touch.
  6. Let cool for a few minutes to set, then slice into 6 pieces and serve.

What to serve with frittata

Frittata is the perfect dish for a healthy brunch, breakfast, or lunch. I sometimes even have one for dinner! It pairs well with tons of vegetable sides. Try serving it with roasted potatoes, a kale salad, quinoa salad, roasted beets, or crispy Brussels sprouts.

If hosting brunch at home, I love to serve a sweet brunch/breakfast recipe along with a frittata. You can’t go wrong with pancakes, baked oatmeal, or a French toast bake.

Can I prepare frittata in advance?

Absolutely! Frittatas are great for meal prep since they reheat well. You can prepare this frittata in advance and store it covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Reheat it in the oven at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until warmed through. You can also reheat individual frittata slices in the microwave for 45 seconds or so.

Smoked salmon nutrition benefits

Smoked salmon is a nutrient dense food to include in your diet. Even just a small amount packs in a lot of nutrition! A one ounce piece of smoked salmon provides:

  • 5.2 grams of high quality protein
  • 0.92 mcg Vitamin B12 (38 percent of your daily needs)
  • 4.85 mcg Vitamin D (24 percent of your daily needs)
  • 9.19 mcg selenium (17 percent of your daily needs)

Additionally, smoked salmon is rich in EPA and DHA essential omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats are important for brain development and function, heart health, and reducing inflammation.

Note that smoked salmon is usually high in sodium due to how it is processed, so if you are sensitive to salt, enjoy smaller amounts of smoked salmon occasionally.

Eggs nutrition benefits

Eggs are a nutritious food packed with high quality protein. One large egg provides:

  • 6 grams of protein
  • 10 percent of your daily Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) needs
  • 22 percent of your daily selenium needs

Eggs are also rich in the nutrient choline, an essential nutrient needed to form cell membranes. Choline is also important for memory, muscle control, and mood.

Note that most of the nutrients in eggs are contained within the yolk. While egg yolks do have cholesterol, research shows that eating eggs does not have a negative impact on your cholesterol levels or heart disease risk in most people.

Ingredients

Scale
