Scrambled Eggs with Fines Herbs and Tomatoes
Serving Size: 4
12 large eggs
1 tablespoon finely chopped fines herbs (chervil, parsley, tarragon, and chives)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 or 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 small tomatoes, peeled, seeded, diced, and drained
1 teaspoon chopped chives
- Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl, reserving 2 yolks in a separate bowl. To the large mixing bowl add the fines herbs, salt, and pepper. Combine with a whisk.
- Combine the heavy cream and the mustard with the reserved egg yolks and mix well.
- In a heavy sauté pan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. When the butter is melted, add the whole egg mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until creamy and slightly thickened.
- Add the yolk mixture and the tomatoes to the slightly thickened egg mixture And remove from the heat while continuing to stir constantly. The heat in the pan will continue to cook the eggs. Perfectly scrambled eggs should be creamy with very soft curds. Sprinkle with the chives and serve.
