Simple recipe. Loads of flavor. Minimal mess in the kitchen.
If these are three goals you would like to achieve for dinner tonight, and you don’t mind having breakfast for dinner, I have a recipe I would love to share with you.
Smoked Salmon Scramble. Recently, I was flipping through the latest edition of Food Network Magazine and found a section that focused entirely on recipes which incorporate eggs. The first one I saw immediately grabbed my attention. One of the aspects I like most about this recipe is that it can be made for breakfast, brunch, or in my case, dinner. Here is the recipe:
Smoked Salmon Scramble
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese (substitute heavy cream or brie)
- 2 tablespoons chives chopped
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1-2 ounces smoked salmon
- 1-2 slices artisan bread or baguette toasted
- Whisk eggs, cream cheese, chives, salt and pepper together in a small mixing bowl.
- Heat nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place a tablespoon of butter to melt in skillet.
- Place wheat bread in toaster, or (if using a baguette) preheat oven to 350 degrees, slice – on the bias – brush a tsp of extra virgin olive oil on the top of each slice, and place in oven until lightly golden brown (about 5 minutes).
- Add egg mixture to the skillet, continually stirring with a spatula until just set. Remove from heat.
- Place smoked salmon on slices of bread and top with egg mixture. Viola!
Keep in mind that the more smoked salmon you place on each slice, the saltier each bite will taste.
What impressed me the most with this recipe was that it did fill me up, and I felt as though I was spoiling myself.
