Smoked Salmon Scramble

Smoked salmon and cream cheese are a classic combo that's usually served on a bagel. This recipe has the combo warmed up with the addition of scrambled eggs for a delicious and healthful breakfast treat!

We are both salmon fans so this South Beach recipe was a great "find." The only "problem" is that smoked salmon can be costly, so it won't be a regular breakfast meal — but it's a wonderful and (did I mention) delicious weekend treat. This recipe makes 2 servings.

Smoked Salmon Scramble
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 oz smoked salmon cut into thin strips
  • 1 oz reduced fat cream cheese, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 TBSP finely chopped chives
  • Freshly ground peppercorns (optional)
  1. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add eggs and allow to set (10 seconds).
  3. Sprinkle salmon, cream cheese and chives over eggs.
  4. Scramble until just cooked, about 1 minute. Season to taste with pepper.

Looks wonderful. I copied it and will put it in my "for special guests" file. It will be sure to make a hit.

Looks delicious, I'm the only salmon eater in this house but I expect it would work with another type of fish.
