Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon

Breakfast is pretty straight-forward in our house. Most mornings we make a couple of scrambled eggs, toast and fruit. My son usually asks for his favorite oatmeal. On school mornings I tend to grab a smoothie to go. Every now on then on the weekends I wake up and cook up a big batch of pancakes. Nothing fancy, just the basic good breakfast food.

When I want to treat the hubby to a breakfast that I know will make him happy, I pick up a package of smoked salmon, some cream cheese and some good bagels (have you ever tried these? Love having them in the freezer!). He introduced me to lox and bagels years ago and its something that we love having every now and then. Especially on lazy weekend mornings.

A couple of weekends ago, he came home with some smoked salmon and since I can’t really have it pregnant (or can I? Is smoked still raw?), I decided to slice up some of it and add it some scrambled eggs instead. It’s been a while since I cooked up scrambled eggs with smoked salmon…and it is still so good! To keep things light, I paired it up with a slice of multigrain toast and a shmear of cream cheese with some freshly chopped chives sprinkled over it all.

The perfect weekend breakfast in my opinion.

A step up from your everyday scrambled eggs. A lovely breakfast for a weekend morning!

Oh how I wish smoked salmon would make my husband happy! He would cringe if I offered this to him (but the eggs and bread, well, he would dive into that!). I, on the other hand, would love this. Thanks for sharing (and thanks for stopping by my blog!)

I love smoked salmon – this sounds amazing!! And BTW it’s totally safe pregnant. Smoking cooks the salmon just like smoked ham or smoked turkey leg or anything else. :) DO IT UP!! xoxoxo

Aggie…..Ray’s bagels are my absolute addiction & are always in my freezer!! They are INCREDIBLE, aren’t they? I love the plain so much that I’ve never ventured to try any other flavor. Have you?

I love toasting them and eating them spread with kerrygold butter. I also love using them as the base for my Chicago dogs (so I guess it’s essentially a Chicago dog bagel lol). Mmm……
