Holiday Breakfast - Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Capers

Family coming in from out of town for the holidays?   If you're going to have a house full of people and you're already planning to spend half the day in the kitchen cooking an early dinner, take a break for breakfast. 

This egg dish is very easy to prepare.   It's fancy enough to serve with champagne if you're making a brunch, and simple enough for a quick morning bite with hot coffee or tea. 

If you are planning on serving your main meal about two or three in the afternoon, this breakfast is perfect for those occasions.  It will keep your guests happy and full until dinner is ready.   

Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Capers

Serves 4.

8 large eggs, beaten
1/8 cup 2% milk
2 tablespoons Low Fat  Cream Cheese with Chives
4 ounces Smoked Salmon, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped Capers (rinsed)
Freshly chopped Chives for garnish (optional)
Hot Sauce for passing at the table

Other:  Butter flavored cooking spray

In a medium bowl, beat eggs well.  Add in milk and whisk in the cream cheese. 

Add in the smoked salmon and capers and give it a quick stir.

Spray skillet with cooking spray.  Heat skillet over medium heat.

Pour in egg mixture.   Work with spatula so that the eggs fluff up as they cook.
