Scrambled Eggs With Fines Herbes and Tomatoes

This is Wolfgang Puck's recipe from the Food network. I had some home grown tomatoes, and thought this would be a great breakfast, and it was! I did increase the quantity of fresh herbs, but you can reduce those to be more like his recipe. I also subbed creme fraiche for his heavy creme.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl, reserving 2 yolks in a smaller separate bowl. Add the herbs (reserving a little for garnishing), salt and pepper to the large bowl of eggs. Mix with a whisk.
  2. In the smaller bowl of egg yolks, whisk in the mustard and creme fraiche. Mix well.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet. When melted, add the large bowl of eggs and cook, stirring constantly, until creamy and just barely thickened.
  4. Add the yolk mixture and the tomatoes to the skillet. Stir once or twice to incorporate, and remove from the heat. They will continue to cook off the heat.
  5. Prepare the plate, serve the eggs garnished with some of the herbs.

This was delicious! We used chopped grape tomatoes, fresh tarragon and fresh Thai basil. I highly recommend the tarragon - the flavor was perfect. We also substituted fat-free sour cream for the creme fraiche. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.

I simply went out into my herb garden and grabbed a little parsley, thyme, blue sage, and rosemary and tossed it in the pan with the other ingredients. Nice fluffly eggs. I also used tomatoes from my garden so it was nice to use my garden for once. I will definitely keep this recipe in mind when I make eggs for breakfast. Made for ZWT8.

The dijon mustard works really well in this recipe and I like the fluffy textue from mixing in the egg yolk at the very end. I used fresh parsley and chives; and opted to keep my tomatoes sliced fresh and not cooked in the eggs. Definitely a recipe I will be making again. Made for ZWT8 by Bistro Babes
