I am a big fan of French cuisine.
 Not the stuffy hard to make sauces.
More like the peasant food from the Brasseries and Bistos.
This is a recipe you might find in any of those places.
Here is her simple yet elegant Scrambled eggs with wild mushrooms.
Wild Mushroom Scrambled Eggs
1 cup wild mushrooms
4 tablespoons butter divided
1 tablespoon parsley
1 tablespoon chives
salt and pepper
8 eggs
Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Melt butter in a frying pan. Add mushrooms and saute about 5 minutes. Add parsley, chives, salt and pepper. Remove mushrooms from pan and set aside.
Whisk eggs in a bowl. Melt the remaining butter in the frying pan. Add the eggs and cook stirring constantly until the eggs begin to thicken. about 5 minutes. Add the mushroom mixture and serve immediately.

    It sounds like the perfect dish to me to highlight French cooking. It is not all about high faluting sauce and presentations!

    I love, love, love breakfast food (at any time of the day). This is exactly the way my parents have made their eggs (sans mushrooms) my entire life. They look perfect.

    These eggs look great, I notice that many of Anne’s recipes feature wild mushrooms. I would love that beautiful salad and the eggs for any meal, you definitely got that ‘bistro’ feel with this dish.

    Oooh…these eggs look delicious with the wild mushrooms. I love eggs and mushrooms but I would have had to add some cheese in mine. Perfect with a lovely salad!
