Smoked Salmon Bacon and Jalapeño Egg White Breakfast Scramble

smokedbaconscramble

The smoked salmon bacon is making a reappearance this week!  It was so good and I still had some I needed to cook so thought I would make it into an egg white scramble for breakfast.  I love a colorful egg scramble to start my day on a bright note and this did just that.  I’m hoping Trader Joe’s never stops selling this wonderful item.  I’m trying to decide how to incorporate it into a dinner.  I have a few ideas in my head.  Stay tuned, they’ll pop up in the fall, I’m sure.

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 slices smoked salmon bacon
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 5 mini heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons red onion
  • 2 tablespoons manchego anejo cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon non-fat milk
  • kosher salt, a pinch
  • pepper, a pinch

Directions

Dice jalapeño, removing seeds and membrane (if you desire … you may want the heat and in that case, keep it in – my brother-in-law, Dave certainly would.  He loves heat and spice.  He does live in Texas, however, and I think they like things spicy there!). Chop red onion and set aside.  Halve, or quarter – depending on size, your mini heirloom tomatoes.

Sautè salmon bacon in butter for 2 minutes on first side and 1 minute on second side. Remove from pan and cut into small pieces.  Add bacon back to the pan, adding diced jalapeños, red onion and tomatoes.  Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt and pepper over your vegetables. Crack your eggs, putting the whites into a bowl (save the yolks for another use, if you desire).  Add milk, a pinch of kosher salt and a pinch of pepper.  Whisk together and pour over mixture in pan.  Scramble together over medium-low heat. Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
