A REAL breakfast makes teenagers get out of bed at a reasonable time on the weekends. A REAL breakfast makes everyone happy and ready to weed the garden. Or clean the garage. Or their office. Or their basement. Or do their homework. Yes, REAL breakfasts do work a certain magic on everyone. So thank goodness for Sundays and REAL breakfasts. Well, not even all Sundays, but sometimes some Saturdays, too.
So Sunday came, my weekend edition of the WSJ was waiting to be read, the coffee was made, and I was craving bagels. But I had everything but the bagel! Didn’t have any. Didn’t want to drive and get some. So I created these scrambled eggs. And they are pretty good. The good thing is they are quick and easy to make. So easy; I could, at least if I wanted, make them during the week when there often isn’t time for a REAL breakfast. (Would have to skip my time allotment for the WSJ, though!)
Anyway…I had everything I needed for lox and bagels, except bagels. So I made scrambled eggs. And I flavored them with everything that would go on a bagel, including the topping on an EVERYTHING bagel.You didn’t see that coming, did you? Well maybe you did. Okay. Here they are. Let’s keep this short and sweet, people. It’s just breakfast, after all. But a REAL breakfast and that counts for something!
What is your favorite thing to eat for a REAL breakfast?
Everything But The Bagel Scrambled Eggs
Yield: Serves 2
2 T butter
4 large eggs, whisked well
2 green onions, finely chopped (keeping some for garnish)
1 tomato, rough chop
2 oz cream cheese, cut into 1″ cubes
2 oz hot smoked salmon, flaked into pieces
2 t drained capers
Everything Seasoning Mixture: Use it all
1 t sesame seeds
1/2 t poppy seeds
1 t dried minced onions
1/2 t onion powder
1/4 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt
And for a future recipe thought: Next time I plan to use bagel chips and stir them in. Kind of like Jewish migas! Will let you know…
Melt butter in skillet over medium low heat. Add the eggs and let them slowly cook on bottom while folding them into the center of the pan. Do this all around outer edges of pan. When eggs are almost cooked to your liking, fold in the green onions, chopped tomato, cream cheese cubes, salmon and capers. Stir in the seasoning. Cook a few seconds until all is warm. Serve on an everything bagel. Gotcha! I didn’t have any, remember?
