Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons ghee, divided
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cored and halved horizontally
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus a tiny pinch for the tomatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, cut into 8 pieces OR 2 tablespoons cream or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives or scallions, divided 2 oz. sliced smoked salmon*,
  • roughly chopped freshly ground black pepper

*Smoked salmon can be found packaged in the seafood section of most grocery stores.

Directions:

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon ghee in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Sprinkle cut sides of tomatoes with a small pinch of salt and place cut-sides down in the skillet. Cook without disturbing for 5-6 minutes, or until the tomatoes have browned a bit. Transfer 2 halves to each of 2 serving plates and set aside. Wipe out the skillet.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in the cream cheese and 1 tablespoon chives.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon ghee in medium skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and gently stir until the eggs start to form curds, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the salmon and stir gently. Sprinkle with salt and cook 2-3 minutes, or until eggs are desired doneness. Stir only occasionally at this point so that large curds of eggs form and are not broken up.
  5. Divide eggs and salmon between the two serving plates, sprinkle with the remaining chives and pepper, and enjoy!
