A Smoked Salmon Tartine is the perfect easy weekend breakfast!
It’s probably pretty clear by now that I am a sucker for totally decadent over the top treats. Treats that make you smile while you’re eating/drinking them. But I also love simple, less decadent treats, especially for breakfast. So this Smoked Salmon Tartine with a scallion and caper cream cheese is right up my alley.
Honestly, this is kind of my ideal weekend breakfast. It’s definitely a step up from my usual weekday fare, but it’s still so easy. You can use whatever smoked salmon or lox you prefer, but if you’re feeling adventurous you could make homemade gravlax instead. Truthfully, I hesitated to post this since there’s barely a recipe, but it’s such a go-to for us that I couldn’t resist. Adding the scallions and capers to the cream cheese adds a little something special to the usual salmon and cream cheese combos, and topping it with your choice of red onions, thinly sliced radishes, sprouts, or a poached egg (my personal favorite) makes it that much more exciting.
It’s hard to resist a good runny yolk!
