1 small plain or whole-wheat bagel (2-ounce size)

Olive oil cooking spray

1 small red onion, peeled, finely chopped

1 medium tomato, cored, seeded, finely chopped

4 ounces smoked salmon, diced

¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper, divided

1 teaspoon unsalted butter

1 teaspoon olive oil

4 eggs

1/8 teaspoon paprika, optional

2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature


Tear bagel into small pieces. Chop to ¼-inch coarse crumbs with a knife.

Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place crumbs in skillet and cook to light brown over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove bagel and set aside.

Spray skillet again. Add onion and tomato. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until onion is tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and spoon into a bowl. Stir in salmon, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.

Place butter and olive oil in the skillet and heat over medium heat.

In a bowl, beat eggs with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add paprika if desired. Pour into skillet, turning to spread egg mixture. Cook until eggs are almost set.

Drop cream cheese onto eggs by the half-teaspoon. Top with smoked salmon mixture. Sprinkle on bagel crumbs and press down gently.

Place skillet in broiler 6 inches from heat. Broil 1 minute to heat topping. Using a spatula, gently ease frittata onto serving plate. Cut into 4 wedges.
