I love to create a mix of dishes using eggs. Eggs as you know are a great source of protein, they are inexpensive and in addition they contain a range of vitamins and minerals. I love the pairing of eggs with smoked salmon. They combine well to provided a flavourful and nutritious meal. For those of you that also love this combination you might also like to take a look at my Lentil, Smoked Salmon and Poached Egg recipe. Smoked salmon is great for not only adding protein to a diet but to also add in those much needed fish oils. We should all be eating at least 2 portions of fish per week comprising of a total weight of 140g per portion. Salmon is a fish I struggle to eat on it own. Ideally for me it needs some form of marinade or sauce for me to be able to eat it. For this reason I like to add in smoked salmon to my diet as it avoids the need of the addition of an often calorie laden sauce and is so easy to use as an ingredient.
This dish helps to increase your calcium intake but is also nice and light. The cheeses add a lovely burst of flavour and creaminess that really does make this dish easy to eat and of course delicious too – I do love cheese!
The dish serves one person as a main meal. You can reduce it by one egg (to just 2) for a great breakfast dish. This is also great on toast and can add bulk to lunch but be sure to use wholemeal seeded bread not that white floppy rubbish the supermarkets pass off as cheap bread.
1 small knob of butter
3 medium eggs
15g Parmesan cheese
15g extra mature British Cheddar
60g smoked salmon
1tsp Cream cheese
Sprinkle of freshly dill
freshly grated salt and pepper to taste
It is important to have all individual ingredients prepared before you start cooking otherwise you may end up with a cold dish which isn’t so nice.
Weight and grate your cheeses and set aside.
Weight and chop the smoked salmon and set aside.
Chop the dill so that is ready to use straight away too.
Beat the eggs until the yolks and white are well combined.
Preheat a pan and then place the knob of butter in and allow this to melt. Once it has done so then add in the cream cheese and stir until it breaks down a little then add in the beaten egg and grated cheeses.
Mix this slowly allowing it to cook a little between stirring. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper and stir until cooked.
Place in a bowl and sprinkle over the chopped dill.
