• 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
• ½ cup white onion, minced
• 5 large eggs
• ⅓ cup (2 ounces) lox, finely diced
• 1 Tbsp. chopped chives
• Salt and pepper, to finish
• Crushed red pepper flakes, optional

Lox and Egg Scramble

1. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat the butter over medium-low heat. Add the onions, season with a pinch of salt and cook until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally, 7 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a medium bowl and whisk until the whites and yolks blend together, 20 to 30 seconds. Add the eggs to the onions and cook, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula, until the eggs become soft curds and are almost fully cooked, 2½ minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the lox. Garnish with the chives, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
