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 twigs thyme (I also use Parsley)
15 g butter (or olive oil)
2 twigs Parsley (or chives)
1 pc tomato


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.

Clean mushrooms

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.

4. 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.

5. 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!
