Scrambled eggs with truffle


  • finely shaved black truffle
  • 3 egg yolks
  • unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp
  • whipped cream
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


To get maximum flavour from the truffle, place it in the carton with your eggs overnight to allow its aroma to permeate.

  1. Rub the inside of a small heavy-based saucepan with butter to prevent the eggs from sticking.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks and milk in a bowl and pour them into the pan off the heat.
  3. Place over medium–high heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the egg starts to thicken.
  4. Continue cooking until the egg is just set but still creamy.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir through the cream.
  6. Season to taste. Serve garnished with shaved truffle.
