A moment in my day is the topic for today's blogging challenge. For me that would be the special time I have with my partner before we both go off to work in the morning. We usually wake up earlier so we can have breakfast in bed together but some days, I get up and make my partner's favourite breakfast.
I thought I would share with you my scrambled egg recipe, it really does taste divine! With the smoked salmon on the top, it makes it a bit more decadent.
Ingredients (serves 2)
5 eggs (the best you can - I used duck eggs here)
1 1/2 tbsp double cream
2 large day-old butter croissants
4 or 5oz smoked salmon
1 tbsp chopped chives
2oz of butter
salt and pepper
- Melt one knob of butter in a non-stick pan, not letting it brown.
- Whilst the butter melts cut the ends off the croissants then cut them into slices about 3/4 of an inch thick.
- Toast them on a dry frying pan for about a minute each side then lay them on two plates.
- Break the eggs into the pan and break up the yolks with a quick stir using a wooden spatula.
- Keeping to a medium heat, let the eggs start to bubble.
- Remove from the heat and push them around the pan to let all the eggs touch the bottom.
- Bring the pan back to the heat until the eggs solidify a little more.
- Remove from the heat and stir again.
- Keep doing this until the eggs look like curds. They do not want to set hard.
- Just before the eggs are cooked, remove from the heat add another other knob of butter, salt and pepper and the double cream .
- Return to the heat again and tease the eggs until the butter is melted.
- Remove from the heat, fold in the chives and then serve on the croissants.
- Lay the smoked salmon on top of the eggs and serve.
Try them and let me know what you think. You could substitute creme fraiche for the double cream for a lighter touch, but this is about having a luxurious treat. I believe I may have got this recipe from a book by Gordon Ramsay that my mum had.
Are these the best scrambled eggs in the world? Probably.
