Directions

Step 1Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2Place eggs, 1 Tbsp. chives, mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; whisk to combine. Set aside.

Step 3Heat oil in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet over medium. Add potatoes; stir to coat, then arrange in a single layer. Cover and cook until potatoes are almost tender, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add red onion; cook 3 more minutes, until softened.

Step 4Scatter salmon evenly over potato mixture in pan. Pour egg mixture over salmon and potatoes. Sprinkle cheese over top, and transfer pan to preheated oven. Bake until egg mixture is set, about 25 to 30 minutes. Garnish with remaining 1 Tbsp. chives. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into 6 slices.
