Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs
Smoked salmon and eggs are a healthy and delicious way to enjoy scrambled eggs. This easy salmon recipe makes a great breakfast or weekend brunch.
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 my husband 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 while I’m pregnant (or can I? Is smoked still raw?), I decided to slice up some of it and add it to some scrambled eggs instead. It’s been a while since I cooked up smoked salmon scrambled eggs, 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.
Smoked salmon scrambled eggs are the perfect weekend breakfast, in my opinion.
