CHIVE SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH BLACK TRUFFLE SALT (BREAKFAST)

SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH BLACK TRUFFLE SALT

Earthy black truffle-infused salt sets the tone for these decadent chive scrambled eggs. They’re especially fluffy since they’re not over-beaten. Adding to the cloud-like results, they’re given time to cook in the pan, untouched, before a vigorous stirring ensures curds form.

INGREDIENTS

Serves 2

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt 2-1/2 tablespoons butter in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When pan is warm, add eggs and let sit until they're just starting to stick to the pan. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon to form curds. Cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are almost set but still runny, about 3 minutes.

  2. Add kosher salt, remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter and heavy cream and stir to combine. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until eggs are just cooked, another 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and divide evenly among two plates. Season with black truffle salt, chives and black pepper.
