8 large eggs

16 saltines, broken into large pieces

Kosher salt

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 to 2 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces

2 ounces smoked salmon, cut into large pieces

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more sprigs for garnish

1 tablespoon minced red onion

Freshly ground pepper


  1. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl; stir in the saltine pieces and 1/2 teaspoon salt. 
  2. Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat; add the egg mixture and cook, stirring gently with a heatproof spatula, until the eggs begin to scramble, about 4 minutes. Fold in the cream cheese, salmon and dill; cook until the cheese is just soft, about 1 more minute. Garnish with dill sprigs, the red onion and pepper and serve warm.
