1. Clean the Chanterelles for Omelet

The mushrooms usually come into the kitchen with many additions: sand, moss and needles are frequent companions of the wild mushrooms. There are two varieties for cleaning:

Variant 1: Clean the mushrooms carefully with a knife and a brush. This works with mushrooms that are not so dirty!

Variant 2: Wash the mushrooms quickly in a flour – lemon juice – water mixture, dry them quickly and then process them further. Please do this with very dirty mushrooms!

Very sandy and dirty mushrooms rather wash, if the mushrooms are only slightly dirty, then please brush them off lovingly with a brush. The mushrooms like that!

Recommends cook Thomas Sixt

The cleaning of mushrooms I will show you step by step in a detailed article.

Mushrooms in the flour lemon water
Get the mushrooms ready and tap them gently. Pour in the water and mix with flour and lemon juice. Dip the mushrooms quickly and move them around in the water. I always do this with small portions, then put the mushrooms into the sieve and wash them quickly under running water. Dry the cleaned mushrooms on a kitchen towel. Click on the picture, in the article I show you all tips.

2. Prepare Eggs and Other Ingredients for Omelette

Always break the eggs into a bowl first. You can then examine the eggs better and check whether they are still fresh. In addition, the seasoning of the eggs is more controlled and the preparation is more successful.

Eggs cracked and seasoned in a bowl
It has proved to be a good idea to beat the eggs in a bowl before use. This way you can avoid egg shells in your food and check the freshness of the eggs.

Other ingredients

In addition to the eggs you will need some Emmental or Parmesan cheese. I have added thyme, primal salt and pepper and as a secret ingredient some smoked paprika.

It is best to prepare all the ingredients, then the preparation runs harmoniously. Also think of the warm plates please!

Tip from chef Thomas Sixt

You can prepare this egg dish in different ways: With a small pan and 2 eggs you get a nice little crescent-shaped omelette. In a large frying pan you get either a large omelette, which becomes wonderfully fluffy, or you can leave the shape round and simply serve quarters or eighths.

250 g Chanterelles
50 g emmental (I also like to use parmesan)
4-5 pc eggs
1/4 tsp Salt (I use primal salt or Himalayan salt)
4-6 pinches Pepper black, ground
2 tbs thyme (I use additional thyme.)
15 g butter (or olive oil)
4 pinches paprika powder smoked


Wash mushrooms properly
We want to wash mushrooms very quickly so that the tasty fellows don't get too drunk with water. For this, chefs use a mixture of water, lemon juice and flour.

Wash mushrooms

Clean the mushrooms with a brush or wash them in flour-lemon juice water and rinse them clearly under cold running water.

Dry the mushrooms and prepare them for cooking.

The article on cleaning mushrooms is linked in the article.

It is best to beat the eggs in a bowl beforehand. This way you can avoid shells in the food and check the freshness of the eggs.

Prepare eggs

Beat the eggs in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and thyme.

Whisk the eggs with a fork.

You can also prepare the egg dish in portions, then beat only 2 eggs in the bowl.
