    I think this was the most luxurious breakfast I've ever eaten! Normally I like cheese on my egg sandwiches, but the heavy cream made cheese unnecessary. I used cold-smoked salmon and extra fresh dill because I love it. Definitely too rich for everyday, but perfect for an occasional treat. This would be a lovely addition to a brunch table. Thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8

    Excellent and decadent ! buttery, creamy delishousness! I had thin sliced smoked salmon and kept it like that ...the dill was an excellent addition and the eggs went very well into the combination. Fancy a lunchtime splurge? you couldn't go wrong than this delectable sandwich. Please see my rating system: 5 stars for a push-the-boat-out sandwich that is easy and decadent. Thanks!

    We thoroughly enjoyed this for today's lunch. I used all of the specified ingredients except for the cream: I used Greek yoghurt. I didn't scramble my eggs; instead I made a small omelette. I add a few drops of lemon juice and two chopped chives to 3 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt (we love Greek yoghurt and since it was yoghurt not cream, I felt I had the license to use more!) Once my omelette was cooked, I halved it and placed half in each croissant, then added the smoked salmon topped with the Greek yoghurt and dill. I didn't weigh the smoked salmon, but I undoubtedly used more than the amount specified: I added a generous slice to each croissant. Fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, mersaydees!

    I made it as a 3 croissant recipe but only used about tablespoon of butter for the 3 eggs, I didn't have dill but used chives fresh from the garden. The DM scoffed 2 and I battled to get through 1 with a side salad for lunch, we both enjoyed very much and look forward to making for breakfast. Thank you mersaydees, made for Swap #19 August 2008 Aussie/Kiwi forum.
