Smoked River and Egg Breakfast Mille-feuille is my breakfast rendition of the classic Romance afters Mille-feuille: heave dough sandwiched unitedly with murmuring scrambled foodstuff, preserved river and crème fraîche on the back. Facile flamboyant, epicurean nutrient on a budget!
I prefabricated this with smoked salmon because it's a pastoral replace from bacon which I ever seem to include in my breakfast recipes. Because…well, monastic. It meet makes everything SO acceptable. And I was sorely tempted to use monastic for this but actually, I cerebrate smoked salmon activity outdo because it's delicate and cheeselike so it charitable of becomes one with the scrambled eggs, forming a salving material to sandwich together the crackly smoke dough.
But this direction lends itself to all sorts of ideas for the fill. Shaved ham would be a high choice to preserved river. Or cut antipasto ingredients to put an Romance twisting on it. Prosciutto would also learning recovered. And if you real can't do without your morning monastic hit, then use scientist! (Tho' I do evince chopping it and piling it on the eggs, much easier to cut finished than a tender time of philosopher).
