Easy to whip up, these eggs are a flavourful way to start the morning. Substitute smoked salmon for smoked trout and top with caviar and crème fraîche for a simple appetizer or special brunch dish.
Scrambled Eggs, Cherry Tomatoes, and Smoked trout on Toast
3 tablespoons chives, chopped
6 large eggs
3 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 large or 8 small slices sourdough, or whole wheat bread, toasted
4 oz. thinly sliced smoked trout
¼ cup cherry tomatoes
¼ avocado, sliced
Whisk chives, cream, and eggs in a large bowl. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon to form soft gently set curds, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the trout.
Meanwhile, season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Place toast on each place. Top with sliced avocado. Spoon over egg mixture and top with tomatoes.
