With a secret ingredient, artist-chef Lexie Smith puts a surprise twist on the classic breakfast staple. If you have the time and you like your scrambled eggs soft, ultra-creamy, and definitely habit-forming—read on.

The dish is recommended with any kind of sourdough with pickled vegetables on top or with bitter greens for a healthier finish, "It’s even good cold and spread on crackers, almost like cheese.” Smith adds.
