1 teaspoon chopped Italian parsley

1 teaspoon finely chopped chives

4 oz cream cheese, cut into ½-inch cubes

4 oz pre-sliced smoked salmon, cut into large strips

12 large eggs

1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half

1 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Heat oil in a heavy twelve-inch ovenproof non-stick skillet, add onion and garlic.  Cook until onion becomes golden in color at medium heat. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.


In a small bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten and slightly frothy. Whisk in milk, parsley, chives, salt and black pepper and set aside.


Add egg mixture to skillet, and then quickly arrange remaining ingredients smoked salmon, cream cheese and tomatoes, in order, on top of eggs, distributing evenly and attractively.
