Good morning! Yearning for something different on your breakfast or brunch table? I ran across this recipe for Poached Eggs with Smoked Salmon Toast Points from Food and Wine a few years ago. It is one of my favorites. Quite often, smoked salmon will be served with minced hard-boiled eggs. Serving it up with a runny yolk will change your world.

Here is my version of Poached Eggs with Smoked Salmon. It is slightly easier to prepare. Well, except for the damn egg poaching part. It does take practice. I have definitely messed it up many times.

Today, I did not. So, I will try and give you the low-down. The step-by-step process on how to poach an egg perfectly. Don’t get frustrated. Practice makes perfect! Just be sure to have a few extra eggs at the ready!

If you are really struggling with poaching eggs, or you want an alternative to this recipe instead of frying the eggs. Try using this egg cooker. I recreated this recipe a few days ago. Not only do I love how easy it was to prepare a soft egg, but look at the presentation. These egg cups are adorable. The egg cups came with their own egg cracker, too!

The egg cooker is super easy to use. Punch a hole in the top of the egg with the device provided. Fill water cup to the “soft egg” level. Place lid. Timer will buzz when the egg is a perfectly soft-boiled.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Toast the bread and cut into strips. Wrap a slice of the smoked salmon around each strip and set aside.

In a small bowl, crack one egg. Add the vinegar to the pot. Swirl the water and gently drop in the egg. You will see the white part of the egg curl around the yolk. Try not to have the water at a full-on boil. As soon as the white starts to stiffen (about 3 minutes), remove the egg from the pot with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on a paper towel. I typically do two eggs at a time.

Don’t worry if your poached eggs do not come out perfectly the first time. There seems to be somewhat of an art to poaching eggs. The key is to just keep practicing.

Place the poached eggs in a bowl with two to three pieces of the Smoked Salmon Toast. Break the eggs. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Start dipping away!!! You are going to love this combination and recipe for Poached Eggs with Smoked Salmon Toast Points.

Do you love Everything But the Bagel seasoning blend? Sprinkle just a bit on top of the salmon toast. The flavor combination of this seasoning blend sends this recipe up a few notches. Although, it is so perfect even without it.

Love poached eggs. Try my recipe for Eggs Benedict. It is a bit out of the ordinary, but oh so delicious!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!

  1. […] This recipe is perfect for dessert, as they were the most beautiful compliment to my Linguine with Red Clam Sauce. They would be equally as fabulous on your brunch menu. Pair with my Asparagus Gruyere Quiche, or for a touch of elegance, my Soft Boiled Eggs with Salmon Toast Points. […]
