Everything Salmon Frittata

Bagel and lox is one of my favorite brunch foods. And everything bagels are my favorite bagels. But, in the last handful of years, when I eat a lot of bread or gluten, some of my joints hurt, especially those in my hands. So, I this everything salmon frittata is my attempt to have some of the familiar bagel and lox flavors without loading them up on a bagel.

So, your typical bagel and lox comes with tomatoes, red onion, capers and cream cheese. I left the cream cheese out of this recipe for a Whole 30 and paleo compliant application. But it would also be delicious with cubed cream cheese mixed throughout the frittata. I also added some everything bagel seasoning to the egg mixture since I love an everything bagel.

Now for the lox part of the recipe. Lox is salmon cured in a salt-sugar rub. Now you don’t have to use lox in this recipe. You can use any kind of salmon; smoked salmon, frozen salmon that you cook up with some salt and pepper, leftover salmon fillets in your refrigerator, etc. In this recipe, I quickly cooked some salmon fillets seasoned with everything bagel seasoning, then flaked them into the egg mixture.

You can also change up this recipe in other ways, like making it a quiche instead of a fritatta. I just went the frittata route to keep it whole 30 and paleo.
