Here’s a 15-minute brunch idea for people who want real food in a short amount of time: Creamy Sage Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon. And if that ‘s not enough, we made a Chive Truffle Cream sauce to go with the salmon…and the eggs (trust me, it tastes divine).
Instead of using milk, which is the standard ingredient for scrambled eggs, we used cream. Obviously, this dish isn’t meant for weight watchers. The sage gives off an earthy yet sophisticated touch to these creamy eggs, and the hot-smoked salmon adds a layer of smoky flavor to this dish. But you can also opt for cold-smoked salmon (the pinker, softer variety) if you prefer a tender, less flaky companion to your creamy sage eggs.
To mellow out all the flavors, we put together a Chive and Truffle Cream Sauce. It uses a cream-cheese-and-sour-cream base, which adds a tangy zing, while a whisper of truffle paste leverages the taste of the entire dish altogether. Assemble on top of some toasted baguette slices, take a bite, and let the goodness of this easy 15-minute brunch overwhelm you.
