2. Prepare scrambled eggs in the oven

It doesn’t always have to be the pan. I also like to stock the eggs in the oven in small oven molds or cups. Your visitor will make eyes and you have little effort.

3. Mushrooms – the classic complement to the egg dish

In detail, I would like to present you in the recipe the variant with mushrooms. Mushrooms are at the top of the scale of the most popular addition to the egg.

Mushroom and egg together are just delicious and really best friends!

Small list for mushrooms and the shopping list:

Champigons, porcini, chanterelles, oyster mushrooms, chestnuts, shitake and herb mushrooms

Please also think about the herbs: Parsley, chervil or cress harmonize wonderfully with it and give the egg dish a visual kick!

  • 250 g Porcini mushrooms
  • 4-5 pc Eggs
  • 1/4 TL Salt I use primal salt or Himalayan salt
  • 4-6 pinches Pepper black, ground
  • 2 Branches Thyme I also use Parsley
  • 15 g Butter or olive oil
  • 2 Branches Parsley or chives
  • 1 pc Tomato
  • Clean the mushrooms with a brush or wash them in flour-lemon juice water and rinse them clear under cold running water. Dry the mushrooms and prepare them for cooking. In my cooking school I show you how to clean mushrooms.
  • Cut the mushrooms for the pan with a knife.
  • Heat a frying pan and fry the butter in it. Put the prepared mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes over high heat. Season lightly with salt, bell pepper and paprika powder. Let the mushrooms take some color, then the taste is more intense!
  • Cut a large part of the mushrooms into small pieces. The others remain for decoration. Now put the fried mushrooms aside for the time being.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and season with salt, pepper and thyme. Beat the eggs with a fork. You can also prepare the egg dish in portions, then beat only 2 eggs in the bowl.
  • Add the egg to the hot oil in the pan. When the eggs begin to set, add the fried mushrooms.
  • To prepare 2 eggs, please use a small pan, half of the sautéed mushrooms with two eggs in the pan.
  • Skin and core the tomato. Cut into small cubes. We need them for the decoration.
  • Serve the egg dish on warmed plates or bowls. Garnish with mushrooms, chives or parsley and diced tomatoes. Enjoy your meal!
You can also prepare this egg dish with porcini, chestnuts, mushrooms, oyster mushrooms and herb mushrooms. Please note the size of the mushrooms. You can either pluck the mushrooms into small pieces or cut the larger mushrooms into thin slices!

Shitake mushrooms in the pan. Larger mushrooms I cut into thin slices.

Instead of thyme, you can also use parsley, lovage, basil or chives.
