Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in medium bowl until blended. Heat butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Pour in egg mixture. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with a spatula, forming large soft curds. As soon as the eggs are cooked, remove from the pan immediately and serve with your smoked salmon wrapped asparagus. Note: A delicious breakfast to start the day
