Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon

breakfast recipe running a bed and breakfast Dec 19, 2020

After the full English this is probably one of the most requested dishes at my B&B. There are several ways of cooking it but I've finally settled on this one. It's a creamy concoction of eggs, with the Salmon stirred in, all piled on top of an English muffin.

Some people don't like the salmon stirred into the eggs, so my breakfast menu gives people the choice of having it stirred in or on the side!

I like to use Paul Hollywood's English Muffin Recipe, but I make the dough in the breadmaker. You could of course  buy them ready made from most supermarkets. I halve them when I make or buy them, freeze them individually on a baking tray, then pop into a bag and back into the freezer.

I've used sliced smoked salmon for this recipe but it's great for using up cheaper smoked salmon trimmings. You can also use flakes of hot smoked salmon or flaked trout.


  • 2 free range eggs
  • 60g smoked salmon ( retain a couple of strips of salmon as a garnish if you like )
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 1 English muffin
  • 1 tsp of butter plus extra to butter the muffin
  • Black pepper


Chop the salmon into small pieces and put into a small bowl with the cream and mix well.

Break the eggs into a small bowl & whisk until all of the yolk & white are well combined. Add a grind of black pepper.

When you're ready to cook melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat and put in the eggs, stirring all the time to scramble the eggs. When about half of the liquid had turned into curds then add the salmon & cream mix ( pop the halved English muffin in the toaster at this point too ), continuing to scramble until all of the liquid has gone and you have a pan of creamy eggs & salmon.

When the muffin pops, butter in well, put onto a warmed plate & pile the salmon on top.

I like to serve mine with a sprinkling of chives or parsley & a wedge of lemon, but check with your guests as not everyone likes herbs. And some people may be allergic to them.
