Smoked Salmon Frittata Bites

Posted by on February 6, 2012 | 26 Comments


Today we are honoring our good friend Amy of Simply Sugar & Gluten Free with a Virtual Baby Shower …

Surprise Baby Shower for Amy of Simply Sugar & Gluten Free

For my contribution to the shower, I went out on a limb, choosing something savory that doesn’t involve any butter, cream, or cheese (hang with Amy, you are still going to love it, I promise!). Nonetheless, these little frittatas are rich and packed with flavor.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have any baby shower inspired props for decorating. But, I did my best to honor Baby Boy Green with some little blue plates that I actually won at a baby shower! That’s themed enough, right?

Dairy-Free Soy-Free Smoked Salmon Frittatas


Recipe: Smoked Salmon & Dill Frittatas

Summary: Unlike so many egg-based recipes, these little bites are dairy-free AND soy-free! If desired, you can make them larger in regular-sized muffin tins and serve them for brunch.


  • 8 Eggs (organic if possible)
  • 2 Ounces Raw Cashews, ground in a spice grinder
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/4 to 1/2 Teaspoon Salt, or to taste (see note)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Dill (use fresh if you can get it!)
  • 1/4 Cup Minced Onion
  • 3/4 to 1 Cup Finely Chopped Wild Smoked Salmon


  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF and grease 64 mini muffin tins. I actually used silicone candy cups, which worked great – they popped right out! If you don’t have 64 little tins, you can always make larger frittatas.
  2. Place the eggs, ground cashews, water, salt, dry mustard, and pepper in a mixing bowl and beat for a minute to combine.
  3. Whisk in the dill, onion, and salmon bits.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared mini-muffin tins, making sure to distribute the salmon and onion throughout. I fill them about halfway full. They do rise a bit, and I like them bite-sized.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, or until set.
  6. Let them cool for 10 minutes, then pop them out to serve!
  7. These can be made in advane and then reheated for a few minutes in a 300ºF oven.

Quick notes

The amount of salt you will need will depend on the saltiness of your smoked salmon. I used a fairly salty one with 1/2 teaspoon salt. They were devoured, but I definitely could have used a little less salt.

    Okay, THIS would have been a great filling for my crepe cups! We should have gotten our wonder twin powers together on this one : ) I LOVE LOVE LOVE smoked salmon. Looks like I’m not the only one. I’m going back for seconds … oh wait … they’re all gone! Boo. xoLexie

  8. Ricki says:

    How cute are those?? Adorable. I bet Amy would swoon for these 😀

  9. Alisa!! Thank you so much. The blue plates are completely perfect. I am completely overwhelmed with gratitude for all you’ve done to make the arrival of our little guy so special. I am so very lucky to have you as a friend.


  10. Cara says:

    Smoked salmon is one of my favorite things so you can bet I’d be all over these!

  11. Katie says:

    Oh yum. A few years ago, before I had to give up gluten, I went to a wedding shower brunch where the hostess served smoked salmon brioche. OH MY GOD. I have never had anything so decadent, and I still dream about it. This looks like a close version of that, without the bread. Bookmoarked and pinned. 😀

  12. Alisa, smoked salmon in anything is something I could eat all day long. These sound so totally amazing. I want one of these right now! And I love your photo of them (and your pretty blue dishes)! 😀

  13. I’m actually thinking these would make an awesome early morning breakfast, not just a brunch treat. Very healthy and full of goodness. What a great idea and a great way to start the day. And yes, the dishes are nice! Happy virtual shower to Amy. =)

      Well, truth be told, that was actually my lunch, since I didn’t have any brunch guests to accomodate myself! An eighth batch with a salad makes a nice lunch 🙂

  14. Hannah says:

    I cannot even cope right now with how marvellous this is. For serious. Cashews in little mini frittatas? I don’t have a mini muffins tin so might make some bigger muffin-size frittatas, yay!

  15. Maggie says:

    I am totally passing this recipe on to my Mom. She will love it, she loves making mini-egg dishes like this. And she’s newly dairy-free (go Mom go) so it’s perfect. And for the record, the blue plates are perfect 🙂

  16. Ive been plowing through my ‘Reader and have been meaning all day to say that my hubs would love these. And for a second when I read ‘Baby’, I thought you may have news to share 🙂

  17. These sound perfect for a shower or a brunch! Great recipe!

  18. Tracy says:

    I’m going to try these out this weekend. If they look like a muffin my son may be more interested in eating an egg this way.

    He’s gluten, dairy and soy free so thank you very much for sharing this.
