Black Truffle Scrambled Eggs (Brouillade aux Truffes)

The hardest part of this recipe might be getting your hands on some fresh black truffles. Sophie used the traditional bain-marie method for super creamy and fluffy scrambled eggs.

Servings 2 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 4 Organic Eggs + 2 Yolks
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 30-40 g black truffle (1 small truffle)
  • 20 g Unsalted Butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Fresh Baguette or toasted sourdough to serve

Instructions
 

  • Place the truffle in the egg carton in the fridge 24h before cooking so the truffle aromas can infuse the eggs.
  • Prepare a bain-marie (*). Place the eggs and yolks in it, as well as the butter and the tablespoon of water
  • Gently whisk the eggs over low heat. Once they just start to set, use a microplane or cheese grater to grate about half of the truffle in the mixture. Continue whisking gently until the eggs reach the desired texture (we recommend keeping them very soft)
  • Divide between two plates, season with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
  • With a truffle slicer or a mandolin, slice the rest of the truffle thinly on top of the eggs on each plate
  • Enjoy with a fresh baguette or toasted sourdough!

Notes

* Bain-marie (or double boiler) is a slow cooking methodology using a water bath to slowly heat a dish or melt ingredients. The dish is placed in the hot water bath and cooked slowly.
