Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Frittata
 
This makes a wonderful and impressive brunch or breakfast entree, or even for dinner witha salad.

SMOKED SALMON AND CREAM CHEESE FRITTATA

8 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk (I use 2%)
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp fresh pepper
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp EVOO or vegetable oil
2 oz cold cream cheese, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
3 oz thinly sliced smoked salmon, chopped

Whisk together eggs, milk, chives, basil, pepper and salt in a bowl. Preheat broiler. Heat oil in a 12 inch ovenproof non-stick skillet (I use my cast iron skillet) over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Pour egg mixture into skillet and scatter cream cheese pieces on top, then cook, lifting up cooked egg around edges using a spatula to let raw eggs flow underneath until fritatta is almost set but still moist on top, 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle salmon over frittata and press on salmon lightly andn shake skillet to allow salmon to settle into top. Broil frittata about 6 inches from heat until set, slightly puffed and golden in patches, 1-1/2 minutes. COol 5 minutes, then loosen edge with a spatula and slide onto a large plate. Cut into wedges and serve at room temperature.Garlish with additional chives, red onion and basil leaves.
