Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Scramble

When I found out that August was National Goat Cheese month, my first reaction was "I hate goat cheese!"  But then I stopped myself.  I remember the last time I had it (4-6 years ago, I didn't like it), and I knew it was time to try it again.  Your taste buds change every 5-7 years, and as you get older, the more bitter foods you like.

I knew that there was a goat cheese stand, Bleugrass Chevre, at the Farmer's Market with free samples so I gave it another try.  I liked it surprisingly; I liked it enough to buy it.  I even found a recipe that looked delicious with goat cheese in it.  I even have some left over for another recipe.  My motto always has been and will be--try new foods!!!

As I sit here eating this (literally), I'm loving how the strong salmon and goat cheese flavor compliment each other.  I'll also divulge that I ate every. bit. of. this.  Yes--all two servings!

Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Scramble
from Tori Avey

Makes 2 servings

4 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon butter 
1/3 cup (2 oz) sliced smoked salmon cut into small pieces
2 oz goat cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
Salt and pepper to taste
Labaneh cheese or sour cream (optional)
  1. Whisk eggs and milk together for 1 minute.
  2. Heat butter in a pan until melted.
  3. Add salmon and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add eggs, dill, and goat cheese.
  5. Taking a spatula, every 1 minute, scrap from the outside edge to the center all the way around.  this allows the uncooked egg to flow in and cook.
  6. When eggs are about 90% done, chop up the middle and spread it evenly in the pan.
  7. Flip eggs once.
  8. Season to taste (I only added pepper) and serve. 
I encourage you to try goat cheese because you might surprise yourself and love it!  I know that I did!

Do you try foods that you don't like every so often?  Have you ever changed you mind about something?
