  • To taste, add salt and black pepper.
  • 8 Eggs (Invest the additional dollar or two to purchase the best eggs available. Free-range farm eggs are the best.
  • 1/4 cup of freshly shredded goat cheese
  • 4 ounces of diced smoked salmon

Method for Making Step-by-Step

Step. 1

In a big sauté pan or nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.

Step. 2

Add the asparagus and simmer, stirring occasionally, until it becomes just tender, or “crisp-tender” as chefs say. Add pepper and salt for seasoning.

Step. 3

In a sizable bowl, crack the eggs and mix in the milk. Then Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, then toss with the asparagus in the pan.

Step. 4

Reduce the heat to low and scrape and whisk the eggs often with a wooden spoon until soft curds start to form. Stir in the goat cheese just one minute before they’re done.

Step. 5

When the eggs are still creamy and soft, remove the stove (keep in mind that scrambled eggs cook through even after the heat is turned off) and fold in the smoked salmon.
