The technique for how to make soft scrambled eggs, which has its origins in France, requires you to whisk the eggs constantly as they cook and transforms the humble eggs into a light, savory custard. This is where the toast comes in: use it to scoop up every drop. Source: EatingWell Magazine, April 2020

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Crack eggs into a medium saucepan. Add truffle butter, pepper and salt. Cook over low heat, whisking constantly, until small curds form and the mixture thickens, 10 to 12 minutes. It should be smooth and velvety, like a custard. Remove from heat and stir in crème fraîche and chives.

  • Serve the eggs with toast. Garnish with more chives and shaved truffle, if desired.


Tips: Look for truffle butter at well-stocked grocery stores and specialty markets. It's delicious stirred into eggs or risotto or melted on grilled steak or roast chicken.

To shave fresh truffles, use a truffle slicer, a mandoline or a vegetable peeler.
