When is the right time to prepare this smoked salmon and eggs recipe? Obviously, you can make it whenever you want, even if it’s for a late-night or after work snack.

Want to bring a little more dairy into the picture? Try topping your scramble with small cubes of diced cream cheese that has been placed in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up. It softens on contact with the smoked salmon and eggs, adding another layer of flavor. You may even want to offer family and friends a small bottle of hot sauce to complement this dish. Many people love the way a liberal sprinkling of heat pairs beautifully and tastefully with these fantastic foods.


1. Whisk together eggs, 3 tablespoons of chives, garlic, dill, sea salt, black pepper and low-fat milk in a large mixing bowl. Continue to beat until eggs are frothy and all ingredients are well-mixed, about 2-3 minutes by hand.

2. Place butter in a large frying pan or skillet and melt over medium heat. Toss the Vidalia onion into the melted butter. Saute until the onion is well-cooked and brown, around 12-15 minutes.

3. Pour the egg and milk mixture into the skillet with butter and cooked onions. Stir while cooking for about 5 minutes. The eggs should be slightly firm but not quite cooked all the way through.

4. Add salmon to the skillet. Continue cooking and stirring until the eggs are moist but cooked, around 2 minutes.

5. Move all ingredients to serving plates. Garnish each plate with remaining chopped chives. Serve immediately with warm brioche bread and softened honey butter.
