Smoked Salmon With Capers Breakfast Casserole

Smoked Salmon with Capers Breakfast Casserole 041 (Mobile)

If you love Smoked Salmon, you are going to love this Breakfast Casserole!

This Casserole lends itself to the flavors of traditional Lox and Bagels. For this recipe, it is prepared the night before your Breakfast or Brunch then baked in the morning to serve your family or guests.

The Capers are essential. They really blend well with the Salmon and Eggs. The slightly salty and vinegar taste of the Capers bring out the essence of the dish.

I try to get Wild Caught Salmon from the market verses farm raised. Farm raised Salmon can carry a lot of toxins and are usually full of artificial color and additives. My husband has gone on fishing excursions with my neighbor and they come back with some lovely Fresh Salmon. So if you can get fresh right out of the water and smoke it…that is top notch, otherwise, get the Wild Caught Salmon at your local market for best flavor.

10. Place the foil covered baking dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

11. Remove the foil and continue to bake for about 20-25 additional minutes. The Casserole will begin to puff up in the oven as you see here.

12. All ovens cook differently so check for doneness. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.

13. Remove the Casserole from the oven and immediately top with the Capers. Allow the Casserole to cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving. It will be piping hot!

~This is a great recipe for Breakfast or Brunch. Since you can prepare it the night before, and bake in the morning, it might be a nice dish to serve on mornings when you have guests. I served mine with a side of fresh Berries and Cream. We also served freshly brewed Coffee and Mimosas. It was a lovely Breakfast.
