Open face egg sandwich


I always find myslef making the same thing for breakfast: toasted english muffin + smoked salmon + egg + capers + whatever veggies I happen to have in the fridge. I happened to have asparagus and pickeled onions today.  There is nothing better than a runny yolk soaking into the muffin.  I pan fried my asparagus for a few minutes in olive oil and added some lemon flavored balsamic before I turned the heat off.  I always fry my eggs over easy, but do them to your liking.  I spead chive cream cheese on the muffin and then layered all this goodness together.  I make a version of this at least once a week.  Avacado would be a great addition but I didn’t have any on hand.

I was so happy when I stumbled upon these dishes at Capital City Antiques in Salt Lake City.  I love buying things that have history and these two went together so well.  I found a few great pieces that I am excited to share with you over the next few weeks!
