Crostini with Scrambled Eggs, Avocado and Smoked Salmon

Labels: { , } | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

Rich, salty smoked salmon and smooth, creamy avocado have given this classic light egg scramble dish a sophisticated touch and star appeal. These crostini can be a terrific Christmas appetizer when you need to bring something to a holiday dinner or if you are throwing one at home. A sublime flavour combination that’s perfect for entertaining any crowd.

  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 tbsp Sour cream
  • 1 tbsp Fresh chives or green scallions, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 20 g Canola
  • 1/2 Avocado, diced
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 4 slice Smoked salmon
  • 3-4 English muffins or wholewheat or pumpernickel bread, toasted
  1. Break the eggs in a large bowl, add in sour cream, chives and seasoning. Whisk to blend everything together. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook until just barely set, 2-3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, toast bread. Put avocado into a bowl, mash with a fork, and season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Spread mashed avocado over each slice of toast. Spoon eggs over avocado. Drape salmon slices over eggs. Garnish, if desired, with chives. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

Oh yum! Just looking at the photos I am already experiencing hunger pangs. These would do great at a cocktail party. I can only imagine the creaminess of the avocado and the slight saltiness of the salmon.

Can't remember who I had this conversation with regarding salmon, but I prefer making gravlax. It is less expensive and less salty and very delicious. At you can search for gravlax. It will pop right up. Let me know what you think at

Scrambled egg and smoked salmon great combo no doubt but to me the avocado base is the twist in the recipe that makes it more appealing!

I can see where the avocado would be divine with the smoked salmon, Angie. What a lovely little bite. I will have to include this recipe in our holiday entertaining. Thanks!

Angie - this is PERFECT! I love eggs and avocado together (I'm allergic to salmon so I'd have to omit) and I love anything on crostini! In the last few years, I've become toast CRAZY! Any sort of toasty bread....the crunchy element in a dish is incredible! Thanks!

Oh. Angie...these little crostini are a "to die for" elegant, and most fascinating treats that I would love to serve on a Sunday brunch to to family or friends. The avocado makes it super special, as well! All would be needed, is some Bellinis, or Bloody Marys, and that would be an ideal Sunday Brunch!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes each and every time:DDD
