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.

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 breakfast food and this looks like a perfect start to the weekend!
Breakfast food rocks 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Great take on scrambled eggs! Love this!
Made it years ago with leftover smoked salmon, it’s so easy and so good! Thank you! have a great weekend!
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
I had a feeling you would know and that would be the answer!! Holy sushi here I come!
Smoked salmon is the BEST and those eggs looks incredibly delicious!

I grew up on lox and bagels. My grandparents used to bring in the absolute best from Chicago when they’d visit. There was nothing like it. Love love love me some of this breakfast!
Yum- so simple yet fancy. This would be a fun easy bfast to serve company. I love eggs by the way- can’t get enough of them!
Totally craving breakfast now!
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……
Simple and delicious!!! Love it!
Such a scrumptious and easy breakfast! I love it, Aggie!
I’m a breakfast lover and often have it for lunch or dinner too. Love smoked salmon with eggs. Divine 🙂
Such a smart way to dress up plain old eggs! My husband really enjoys smoked salmon, so I will definitely be making this for him soon 🙂
These look delicious, Aggie! I love smoked salmon and eggs together. Perfect!
This looks fantastic, Aggie! Love all that fresh fish in fluffy scrambled eggs!
