This Smoked Salmon with Eggs and Pesto is ideal for breakfast. It’s easy to make and filled with flavor and one that I find myself making over and over again.

I live in a really great city. Houston, Texas is filled with so many wonderful restaurants with every type of food imaginable.

Now that my kids are mostly grown, my husband and I have been making a point to travel downtown more often to explore the seemingly endless dining options available to us.

A few Sundays ago, we visited a place called Blacksmith in an area of Houston called Montrose. This cozy coffee shop has a fantastic breakfast menu and serves up a great cappuccino. It was here that I enjoyed a delicious Dill Scramble which inspired me to make this Smoked Salmon With Eggs and Pesto For One at home.

Slices of smoked salmon topped with scrambled eggs placed over a flavorful layer of pesto and toast is such a delicious idea. It’s simple and so very good!

Salmon and Eggs

The salmon and eggs I enjoyed at the restaurant was slightly different but I think I love my pesto loaded version better.  

The original salmon and eggs recipe features the eggs with bits of dill. Since I didn’t have dill I used chives instead.

I also used a thick piece of crusty french bread as the base of my open-faced breakfast sandwich instead of the pumpernickel that they used.

Healthy Salmon Recipe

This easy salmon and eggs recipe begins with french bread that I quickly browned in the toaster.

On top of the bread I spread a layer of pesto, then added a few pieces of smoked salmon and topped it with the scrambled eggs.  

How can you possibly go wrong with flavors like this? So good!!

To keep things simple, I used store-bought pesto but you could certainly make your own.

Even though this is a “recipe for one”, it can easily be doubled to serve two.

  1. I found you quite by accident and it is a HAPPY find for me!! I am so tired of leftovers and consumed with guilt is I don’t eat them. Meals that wind of for two are fine. I am positive I can “force” myself to eat scones for a second time. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to start receiving your smaller recipes. Barb

    1. I’m so happy you found us too, Barbara! Please let us know if you have a favorite recipe that you’d like to see scaled down to a single serving version and we’ll try to create it for you. Have a wonderful weekend!
