Type: Breakfast
Serve With: Creme fraiche or sour cream
Prep Time: 2 min
Cook Time: 8-9 min
Yield: Serves 2-3

Ingredients:
5 Eggs – I use free range, organic eggs.
8 oz Smoked Salmon – Large chunked
2 tbsp Chives – Chopped
2 tbsp Heavy Cream – Milk or buttermilk can be substituted.
2 tsp Butter – Unsalted preferably
Freshly Cracked Black Pepper – To taste

Instructions:
1. Pre-heat a large frying pan to medium-low heat with butter.

2. In a bowl, crack eggs, add freshly cracked black pepper and chives and mix up with a for or whisk until it is evenly mixed and some frothy bubbles form.

* Tip: Do not add salt of any kind, as the smoked salmon is quite salty, and especially if you’re using salted butter.

3. Once butter is melted in the pan, spread it out evenly to coat the entire bottom of the frying pan.

4. Add egg mixture to pan and let cook for 2-3 min covered.

5. Arrange smoked salmon on 1/2 of the omelette.

* Tip: Be sure omelette is not browning on bottom by lifting up one part very gently. If it is, turn temperature down to low and keep covered.

6. Once omelette is cooked more than halfway through – where there’s only a thin layer of moisture on top, flip 1/2 of the omelette over on the other 1/2 very gently with a large spatula.

7. Move to middle of pan and let sit for another 1 min.

8. Serve with creme fraiche or sour cream on the side, (and caviar, if desired) and champagne.

9. Enjoy a beautiful morning!

Smoked salmon goes amazingly well with champagne!

Why?
Because the champagne can stand up to the strong flavors of salmon and caviar and cut the oily nature of it.

Green onions and either crème fraîche or sour cream enhance the flavors!

We usually prefer a sweeter champagne over the dry varieties.

What a beautiful surprise this would be for your sweetheart any day of the week!
