Smoked Salmon and Onion Frittata

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)
You can make the onion mixture for this dish up to two days ahead of time. Refrigerate it in an airtight container, then bring the mixture to room temperature before assembling the frittata. Serve with cut-up fruit and toasted bagels with cream cheese. We call for baking the frittata in a cast-iron skillet; nine-inch pie plate also works.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup vertically sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 3 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
