    I scaled back for 1 but only used 2 eggs and oh it was so good just loved the saltiness from the capers and the salmon with the sweetness from the eschalot onion and that creamy smooth cream cheese wrapped in fluffy egg to make a decadent omelet, thank you lazyme for a great breakfast, made for Went To Market.

    A little too much cream cheese (never thought I'd hear myself say that!), but otherwise yummy!

    This was so good. I scaled it down for one and after I ate it, I wanted another one. Love smoked salmon, red onions, capers and cream cheese, it was just perfect. Certainly called out my name...long and hard. This was so quick and easy to put together. I will be enjoying this decadent treat often. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe Lazyme. :)

    We liked this but it was a bit too much cream cheese.

    When I'm queen, I'll eat this every morning! Delicious and decadent. I made just a couple of changes: We only made 2-egg omelets instead of 3. And I garnished with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of fresh dill. The garnishes really bring out the richness and flavor of the other ingredients.
