Here at the Fish Creek House Bed and Breakfast, each morning, you will be greeted with one of our fantastic breakfasts served in our sunlit dining room. Everything is fresh, beautiful and absolutely delicious. Rich coffees, fresh squeezed juices, the most gorgeous fruits, fragrant just baked breads and delectable main dishes. Yum .. So this morning,I whipped up a plate of Benedict. I say whipped up. Worked out might be a better turn of phrase. Benedict is a multi-phase project, and timing is critical. You don't so much need a recipe as a Gantt chart. First, you clarify some butter. Then, you whip up the Hollandaise. Then, you grill some ham or bacon (Then, you poach some eggs. Finally you plate it all up on muffins (or
toast), an serve.
Of Course our our breakfast menu here at Fish Creek House wouldn't be complete without a Catch of the Day Breakfast:
• Coffee, tea, Bloody Mary's or tomato juice
• Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Trout, Parsley and Cream Cheese
• Toast, bagels, cream cheese
• Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Trout
SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH SMOKED TROUT
• 2 eggs
• 2 TBs smoked trout, flaked
• 1 tsp fresh, chopped parsley
• 4 1/4 tsp of cream cheese
• 1 tablespoon butter
Crack the eggs into a bowl...just break the yolks. Have the trout and the parsley in two small bowls. (I dab the cream cheese around the edges of the bowl to keep each "dab" separate.) Heat a skillet on medium heat....add butter....when sizzling, add eggs, folding and fluffing so that the whites and yolks do not combine too much. When almost set, fold in the trout and parsley and drop in the cream cheese. Fold gently and serve. Wonderful with great bread or bagels toasted. You may also use smoked salmon.
