I love having smoked salmon for breakfast. It feels like the perfect indulgent thing to add to a morning and reminds me of birthday and Christmas breakfasts.

But sometimes you need a fancy breakfast on an average weekend. Especially at the moment when things are so strange. We’ve really been leaning into making extra special meals, buying food and drink that we usually save for treats and just trying to celebrate the everyday to keep our spirits up while we’re stuck at home.

These toasts are actually so easy to make even though they look so beautiful and tasty. You basically just throw a load of ingredients on a piece of crunch toast, boil an egg and serve it up. The dream!

Why we love these smoked salmon toasts…

It’s such an easy breakfast recipe which is still impressive enough to serve to guests thanks to that delicious smoked salmon and cucumber ribbons.

This is a healthy recipe which is packed full of goodness from the cucumber and salmon so you could even serve this on a weekday morning when you feel like a treat!

You can make this recipe your own by adding and switching out ingredients as you like or have on hand. 

If you want to make this recipe vegetarian you could switch out the smoked salmon for halloumi or extra veggies as you like to.

Smoked Salmon Breakfast Toasts Ingredients

Cucumber: This is peeled into thin ribbons and arranged on the toasts.

Dill: Because you can’t have smoked salmon without dill (unless you hate it in which case leave is out)!

Smoked Salmon

Eggs: These are boiled to your liking and served on top of the salmon.

Creme Fraiche: For that extra freshness.

Toast: Just use whatever bread you like best but crunchy toast works really well here.

Olive Oil & Salt: For serving.
