Lox, Eggs and Onions


Breakfast, lunch or dinner—always a winner. A standby for Passover entertaining.

This recipe is done for 1 portion, allowing for a crepe appearance when serving. For a large group, increase proportionally. Use a substantial fry pan and either form a large crepe, slicing to serve, or after adding the salmon, scramble away!

1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup sliced sweet onion
2 eggs
2 tablespoons goat cheese (Monterey Chevre with chives and garlic is local, available and terrific)
1 teaspoon fresh dill
1/2 ounce smoked salmon (lox), cut into thin strips

Melt butter in a small omelet pan over medium-high heat.

Sauté onions until soft and lightly colored.

Beat eggs with goat cheese until well blended; it’s easier if the cheese is at room temperature.

Mix in 2/3 teaspoon of dill.

Pour egg mixture in pan over sautéed onions. Swirl pan to spread mixture evenly.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until eggs are not quite set on top; they should slide in pan and not stick.

Place lox strips on top of eggs, like peppers on a pizza. Gently lift ¹/3 of egg mixture, folding toward the center. Repeat on opposite side, forming a crepe shape.

If you prefer your eggs not runny, increase heat to medium high for 2 to 3 minutes, until you see eggs puff up. If not, leave at medium heat 1 minute and you’re done.

Serve with baby greens or cold steamed veggies with fruit vinaigrette.

Garnish with remaining dill.
