Quick Mushroom Truffle Omelette for Two

The beautiful thing about eggs is you can eat them for any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner. Egg dishes are generally quick to make, like this Mushroom and Truffle Omelette recipe.

For the best result, muster the patience to allow the black truffle to “sit” with the eggs. By storing your truffle with the eggs in an airtight container for two (2) days, this allows the truffle fragrance to permeate the eggs.
