Brouillade of Mushrooms (or the best scrambled eggs you'll ever eat)

I love this recipe. The title makes it sound so much better than plain old scrambled eggs and appropriately so because it IS much better than just scrambling a few eggs in a pan, without any garnishes. And not much more work either...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork for one minute.
  2. Add the cream, season with salt and pepper and beat for another minute.
  3. Wipe the mushrooms and, keeping separate piles, dice eight of them and slice the other two.
  4. Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter and the oil in a frying pan and fry the diced mushrooms for one minute.
  5. Set aside on a plate.
  6. Sauté the sliced mushrooms and place next to the diced mushrooms.
  7. Heat the remaining butter in the pan and pour in the eggs.
  8. Whisk in a steady movement from the edges of the pan to the centre over a medium heat for a few minutes, until the mixture is smooth and creamy but still fairly liquid.
  9. Remove from the heat.
  10. Stir in the diced mushrooms, garlic and parsley and return to a high heat for a few seconds, stirring until the mixture is thick like custard.
  11. Pour into a warm shallow dish or individual dishes.
  12. Arrange the sliced mushrooms on top and dust with parmesan.
  13. Serve with a nice, hearty, buttered toast.

My son and I made these for my husband for Fathers Day (September 1st) he loved them! I used tiny button mushrooms and will make these again, very creamy in texture, thanks for posting.

The combination of mushroom, garlic & parmesan make this a very special recipe. Fantastic flavor. A perfect brunch recipe for one or for large crowd. I made it for one. Served with mixed peppers & onions & toast MMm Thanks for posting Sackville

This was good, very filling. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I could see something based on this served at a good B&B, though. I used white and cremini mushrooms. This is really four servings though--my husband & I had it for dinner and turned it into three servings, which I don't recommend. (Like alfredo, it gets a little redundant when you've had more than you should.) Also, I thought that it lacked depth--if I had any nutmeg, I would've added it to the eggs, because nutmeg goes really well with eggs.
