Seriously the Best Brunch Ever

I found this dish on Pinterest - a social networking site that creates virtual pin boards. The picture looked so delicious that I immediately decided to go out and buy some avocados so that I could make it as soon as possible.


Start by spreading avocados that have been mashed with lemon juice onto slices of sourdough toast.


Then, scramble eggs that have been mixed with a chives and a little creme fraiche.


Top the toast with the scrambled egg mixture, a slice of smoked salmon, and some more chives for garnish. Toasty bread; creamy, buttery avocado; creamy, melt-in your mouth eggs; and buttery smoked salmon - how could it get any better than that? I will tell you right now - it can't.

Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Avocado on Toast
adapted from Supermodels Bon Appetit **EDIT** 3-24-12 I found the original recipe source **EDIT**
Serves 2-4

3 tbsp minced fresh chives
2 tbsp crème fraîche
6 large eggs
2 tbsp unsalted butter
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 large or 8 small slices sourdough, toasted
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and diced
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 oz thinly sliced smoked salmon

Whisk 2 tbsp chives (hold back 1 tbsp for garnish), crème fraîche, and eggs in a large bowl.

Melt the butter in a large heavy nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Add the egg mixture and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 3-4 mins until barely set, occasionally scraping bottom of the pan to form large, soft curds.

Mash the avocado with a fork in a bowl and season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Spread the avocado over each slice of toast then spoon the eggs over this, and place the salmon on top. Garnish with the rest of the chives, and season to taste with pepper.
