Sunday Brunch: Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon
Although I have seen scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on plenty of brunch menus, pancakes and other sweet treats usually win my order. A recipe in Simple to Spectacular gave me a chance to try the combination at home and introduced me to an unusual technique for making soft, creamy, custardy eggs.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to shake my childhood preference for firmly cooked eggs, and others thought the dish had far too much cream cheese to be eaten on its own, as it's meant to be. With a bagel, however, it was perfect, if still rather rich; I was also glad to have some plain baby tomatoes on the side, for the way their acidic jolt contrasted with the creamy-stodgy eggs and bread.
