Each Thursday, Emily Vikre (a.k.a fiveandspice) will be sharing a new way to love breakfast -- because breakfast isn't just the most important meal of the day. It's also the most awesome.

Today: A breakfast sandwich that's a happy start. 

Baguette with Chevre Scrambled Eggs

Chives make me disproportionately happy. For such a waifish little allium, the pleasure I take in using them is vast. It’s all because of my happy childhood chive memories, being handed the kitchen shears to hustle out to the patch of chives in the backyard and cut enough for sprinkling on our scrambled eggs and cold smoked salmon.

Back in those days I was tiny little person, but I could easily put away a half dozen eggs if they were scrambled with chives. I turned my nose up at the salmon. These days I’m more likely to eat just one or two eggs and will gladly take cold smoked salmon anytime I can get it, but I’m just as fond of chives.

This creamy scramble, punctuated with bits of chevre, turned out to be another excellent way to get my chive and eggs fix. Stuffed into a bit of crusty baguette, you get a filling breakfast sandwich with a nice combination of crunch and yield. If you happen to have some cold smoked salmon on hand, go ahead and sneak in a slip because it would not be at all out of place. Eat, and feel disproportionately happy.

This sounds delicious and the story made me smile. When I was a tiny little person, my German grandmother used to call my stick straight hair that refused to be curled "schnittlauch" or chives.

Yum! I went through a period of eating scrambled eggs with cream cheese and chives, but goat cheese sounds even better.

Thanks Kate. Cream cheese is awfully good too, but I'm more of a goat cheese girl. Well, except this one time when I had scrambled eggs with cream cheese, chives, and lobster on garlic toast. That was a really good day.

Lovely! I like to do this with a little creme fraiche. Goat cheese sounds great too!

Mmm, I love creme fraiche with eggs too. That's another one of my faves.

Oh wow this sounds amazing! I've never put goat's cheese in my scrambled eggs before but I think I'll definitely have to try it.

One of my favorite, favorite combinations. I have streaks when I eat this breakfast every day! Everyone who can should keep a chive plant in a pot or in the garden and a nice, fresh goat cheese in the refrigerator. Great job, Emily!
