Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a bowl combine the eggs and cream, mix very well with a whisk.
  3. When the pan is warm add in the butter and swirl the pan to distribute the fat. When it stops sizzling add in the eggs and let them spread on the skillet.
  4. Use the whisk or a heat-proof spatula to quickly mix up the eggs in a shallow whisk. You’re not scrambling them, you’re fluffing this thin layer of eggs.
  5. Tap the pan down on the stove. Turn off the heat.
  6. Put the smoked salmon, dill and most of the scallion along the center of the eggs then use the spatula to lift one side of the eggs and roll it forward and over the filling until you have a tube.
  7. Slide the omelet onto a plate and garnish it with leftover scallion and bagel seasoning. Enjoy!

    Hello!

    This has less than 1 percent of calories from carbs, but is marked "Moderate Low Carb." Can someone explain why?
    Thanks!

    Great question! Ketogenic meals must also have a certain percentage of fat and a certain percentage of protein. This is a higher percentage of protein than most keto recipes. Most keto recipes are 20-25% protein and 70-75% calories from fat. This can be enjoyed if you are eating keto, just keep an eye on adding more fat.

    Thanks, Kristin! This is the clearest explanation I've heard yet for this common question. And I was able to look at the nutrition and verify your answer with the calculations there. Very helpful!

    Flavorful, but a little too salty for my tastes. Maybe it’s the brand of bagel seasoning that I’m using, but those coarse grains of salt pack a lot of punch. Cutting back to 1/2 tsp of bagel seasoning per omelette worked much better for me.

    Thanks for sharing, Chris! It's common to adjust seasonings to personal taste. Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
