If you want to serve up a special breakfast-in-bed for a special someone or really just treat yourself to a delicious breakfast, this is for you!
How to Cook the Lobster
The first step is to make sure you have lobster to use. You can buy pre-cooked lobster if you can find it at your grocery store. I could not, so I bought a lobster tail and just cooked it myself!
First, use kitchen shears to cut a line straight down the center of the shell on the lobster tail. Cut all the way to where the tail fans out out. Use your hands to open up the shell at the top to expose the lobster meat. This is pictured below. Drizzle with olive oil. Set your oven to a high broil, and place the lobster tail in the oven for about 5 minutes, until the meat turns white.
How to Make Lobster BLT Scrambled Eggs
Fry three pieces of bacon until crispy. When cooked, remove from pan, but keep the bacon grease in the pan.
In a large bowl, crack 4 large eggs. Add 2 tbsp of milk and whisk until fully combined.
Pour the whisked eggs into the bacon grease in the pan. Add fresh ground black pepper, ¼ tsp garlic powder, and ¼ tsp onion powder.
Cooking the eggs on a low heat, use a rubber spatula to push the eggs around in the pan, almost constantly until they begin to cook.
When the eggs are about halfway cooked, add the 3 tbsp of cream cheese. Continue cooking until eggs are at your desired wellness.
When the eggs are about 1 minute away from your desired wellness, add the chopped bacon, tomatoes, spinach, and lobster. Cook on very low heat until the spinach melts. Serve with toast if desired. Enjoy!
What Kind of Cream Cheese Should I Use in my Lobster BLT Scrambled Eggs?
I’m writing this article originally in the middle of the 2020 quarantine, so going to the grocery store isn’t much of an option right now. I would love to use Chive and Onion flavor, or maybe an herb flavor.
However, the only flavor I had in my cheese was plain cream cheese. It tasted delicious anyways, and I was so happy with the way the recipe turned out! But if you have the option to use one of the two flavors tested above, those will give the best results.
What is the Key to Fluffy Scrambled Eggs?
The key to fluffy scrambled eggs is to add quite a bit of milk to your eggs. Then, cook them on a very low heat. The lower your heat is, the longer the amount of time that your eggs have to scramble. If the temperature of your pan is too high, the eggs will curdle instead of becoming fluffy.
For decadent, creamy Lobster BLT Scrambled Eggs, it is always better to cook on a low heat rather than a high heat.
