J and I have yet to establish any type of Christmas tradition. We have taken turns with whose family we spend Christmas day with but even that has never really been the same since our families are fairly large. I think our only Christmas tradition has been rushing around, stressed out and trying to do last minute shopping on Christmas Eve, but that tradition I would like to stop.
This year I officially decided that I want our Christmas tradition to be food related and the easiest thing to do is make a delicious morning breakfast. I might be grasping at straws since I would make a delicious breakfast anyway but we’ll just pretend it’s a tradition. This year was super simple but tasted gourmet!
- 4 croissants
- 4 eggs
- 1 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp cream
- 2 ounces smoked salmon
- 1 tbsp chives roughly chopped
- Salt and pepper
Cut croissants however you like. Horizontally is fine, I cut mine in thick strips. Toast in frying pan on high heat without butter or oil. The butter in the croissant is enough to toast them.
In a second frying pan melt butter on med to med high heat until hot. Crack eggs in pan. With a spatula break yolks and stir around until eggs start to cook but are still very runny, add cream and chives. This will slow down the cooking of your eggs and give them a nice creamy flavour. Continue cooking until desired consistency.
Top croissants with smoked salmon, eggs and salt and pepper. Serve hot.
For such a ridiculously simple meal it sure tasted amazing. Smoked salmon add a nice salty, smoky flavour to your creamy eggs. It also adds a hint of gourmet to a breakfast that is pretty typical. It was such a great way to start Christmas morning.
