Salami-and-Egg Mishmash


"I do love breakfast for dinner—for the record, I highly recommend it," says Noah Bernamoff, chef-owner of Brooklyn, New York's Mile End. For now, he serves this mishmash only until noon. But this dish of scrambled eggs with strips of house-cured fried salami and watercress will appear in a sandwich on the all-day menu at Mile End Sandwich, the place he's opening in Manhattan by the end of the year. More Egg Breakfast Recipes

Total Time:
15 mins


  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  • 10 ounces thickly sliced Genoa salami, cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips (2 cups)

  • 4 cups torn watercress or baby arugula

  • 1 dozen large eggs, lightly beaten

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • Rye toast, for serving


  1. Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the sliced onion and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the salami strips and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add the watercress and cook until just wilted, about 1 minute. Add the eggs, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs are softly set, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer the mishmash to plates and serve right away with rye toast.
