Jammy egg salad plate with smoked salmon and avocado

The ultimate way to start your sunday morning: this is a twist on a typical egg salad- this version has creme fraiche, dijon, capers, lemon juice and lots of dill for a mayo free, jammy egg delicious combo. I served this on a plate with smoked salmon, avocado and lots of crispy bread. I guess some people would call this girl breakfast but whatever you call it, its so good and you gotta try it.
