I scaled this back for 2 of us and the DM and I had a thoroughly enjoyable and very filling breakfast. Served with hot buttered wholemeal/wholegrain toast with the soft scrambled eggs with the creamy texture from the extra light creamed cheese I used and that smoky salty taste of the smoked salmon (lox) it was an absolute luxury which didn't break the bank balance. Thank you lazyme, made for Photo Tag - Fall.
Hi, I can rate this great recipe because I have already submitted to this site (that's ok) There is a difference because mine calls for capers so it is a little different. All this is irrelevant because it makes a wonderful brunch and easy on the cook. Hope others enjoy it.
