Breakfast for me was either Cheerios and raisins or cottage cheese with raisins, sunflower seeds, and bacon bits. I can’t eat the cereal or the raisins on a low-fat plan, so I’ve been eating quiche. It’s an egg-and-bacon breakfast that I only have to microwave.
So after four or five quiches following other people’s recipes, I decided to invent my own. No more lox and bagel, so here is lox and quiche.
Lox and Cream Cheese Quiche
1/2 cup cream
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper (or to taste)
1 tbsp dill
3 oz smoked salmon, diced
4 oz cream cheese, cut/torn into small chunks
1/4 cup green onions, diced
Preheat oven to 350º.
Whip eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and dill until frothy. Arrange smoked salmon, cream cheese, and green onions in a 9″ pie pan. Pour egg mixture over these.
Bake 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
This was so good I ate three servings.
Here are the nutritionals.

I have to admit, though, that the first time I made it, I ate 3/4 of it. That’s not on my diet!
