Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

1 teaspoon tub margarine

4 large eggs or 3 large eggs and 2 egg whites, lightly beaten

1-1/2 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon, cut into strips

1 ounce reduced-fat cream cheese, cut into 4 pieces

Fresh ground pepper

1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped

  1. Heat skillet for 20 seconds and add margarine over medium-high heat for about 10 seconds.

    Add eggs to the skillet and begin to scramble them for 15 to 30 seconds until almost set, stirring occasionally, about 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Sprinkle in salmon and cream cheese over eggs.

    Cook until eggs are cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes, but still moist. Season with fresh ground black pepper and sprinkle with fresh chives.

Use any leftover smoked salmon and cream cheese to make a wonderful smoked salmon dip. Add some plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, fresh dill, and a squeeze of lemon. Blend together for some yummy goodness.
