toast two ways

I love trying different toppings on toast. It’s not just butter and jam on toast now.. there are so many other things you can put. Here are two different ways from Bon Appetit to make toast more interesting and tasty. The first is savory toast with Greek yogurt, radishes & scallions. I like the freshness and crunch from the radishes & scallions. The second is scandi toast with butter, smoked salmon and cucumbers. Smoked salmon is so good and tastes good on anything. If you’re bored with butter & jam, try these recipes! 🙂 Recipes for savory toast and scandi toast courtesy of Bon Appetit: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/savory-toast Spread sprouted sourdough or whole wheat toast with Greek yogurt. Top with shaved radishes, sliced scallion, and flaky sea salt. http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/scandi-toast Spread pumpernickel toast with salted butter. Top with smoked fish and cucumber coins.

open faced sandwich with smoked salmon & scrambled eggs

Why is smoked salmon so good? I get excited every time I see something with smoked salmon on the menu. One of my favorite breakfast meals is a bagel & lox platter.. you just can’t go wrong with it. I decided to create my own version and pile all the ingredients on to make a delicious open faced sandwich with smoked salmon & scrambled eggs. Grab a fork & knife (it might get messy if you pick up) and enjoy! I ate everything & left nothing, not even one caper 🙂 A Delish Thoughts recipe: Ingredients: smoked salmon bagel of your choice (I used onion) cream cheese sliced tomatoes sliced red onion sliced cucumber 2 eggs 1 tablespoon of milk 1/2 teaspoon of chives capers Directions: 1. Slice bagel in half and toast. 2. In a bowl, mix eggs, milk, chives, salt & pepper. Add a slice of butter to a pan and pour the eggs in to scramble. As I learned from Barefoot Contessa, it is best to cook your eggs on low heat …
