How To Make Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs
This recipe is super simple, and you can easily use the first several steps to make any type of egg scramble in the future.
First, crack your eggs on a flat surface and empty them into your bowl. Then, add cream and a dash of salt and pepper. Whisk thoroughly until the mix is homogenized.
Next, set your pan to medium heat and add your butter (or other neutral cooking oil). Once your pan is hot, dump your egg mix into the pan.
The next part is important, and practice makes perfect. Continuously mix up your egg mix with a plastic spatula or wooden spoon, making sure to scrape the sides of the pan to avoid crispy edges.
Once your eggs are not runny, but a little wet looking, add your smoked salmon. Stir the salmon in until well incorporated, then turn off the heat. Serve your eggs with chives for garnish and additional salt and pepper if necessary.
