READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by twissis

I am a little sad at the thought this is the final recipe to enter from my long-lost & newly found recipe treasure trove. BUT it does seem I have managed to end w/something I see as truly spec. (Times were estimated & prep time does include time to prepare ingredients) Enjoy!

This was heavenly. Maybe that's an impartial opinion though, because I love smoked salmon in any way, shape or form. But this was great, especially with the caramelized onions. I know I bought fresh chives not too long ago, but dang if I could find them when preparing these omelets for breakfast this morning. So instead, I use my dried chives. It was fine, but I think fresh would have tasted and look better. Thanks, twissis. Made for your awesome win in the Football Pool. Yum!
