Adventures in the nature and scrambled eggs with chanterelles


I discovered that when you don’t have a great pan for omelet you can make scramble eggs. It’s saving your day. And if you add some fresh green onion is just super.

We go very often in the nature. My little one loves to have adventures. This time he had a day with his dad losing a shoe in the mud. The funny part was that my husband was crossing the mud with our son in his hands so he won’t lose his shoes. Ha! Ha!



Anyway, wandering in the forest, we found some great chanterelles. I took them to make a great omelet. I love omelet or scrambled eggs with mushrooms. When I got to our vacation house I remembered that our frying pan here is not great so I changed the plan and made scrambled eggs instead of omelet.



  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup bacon
  • 1 hand green onion
  • 1 tablespoon double cream
  • 1 cup chanterelle mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • black pepper and salt


Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly with the double cream.  Heat the butter in a large heavy based frying pan. Add the chanterelles, and cook quickly over medium-high heat, tossing and turning until they are just tender and have released their juices. Add the bacon and the onion and keep cooking until the onion is soft. Pour in the egg mixture. Gently push the eggs around with a wooden spoon until they are set. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and serve it hot with garlic bread.

  1. I made a similar thing for brunch today. It started as an omelette but end up scrambled. I really must buy a new pan. Love your choice of mushrooms.

  2. That can almost not be called ‘scrambled eggs’ as it’s something more – a lot more ! A dish fit for a gathering of nobles, that is ! 🙂

  3. Never tried chanterelle mushrooms, they look so yummy! Do they taste like traditional mushrooms in your opinion?? Your hike looked very fun, and that’s a lot of mud haha, thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. Magnificent! Oh, chanterelles! They’re difficult to find around here and are, consequently, quite expensive So worth it, though!

    The fact that you foraged them from the forest makes your culinary creation all the more beautiful. Until I can find chanterelles, I’ll dream. Thanks for that!

  5. …enviable described day, and some of the best looking chantarelles I’ve seen (…of course, here a classic with spinach/regular tagliatelle, speck, scallion, parsely and cream. Basically the same…)

      1. …same basic ingredients and flavors, but the scramble – with good, fat, fresh eggs, crusty bread and a fire – more appropriate for a casual, hearty, warm meal after a walk in cool, clean mountain air. (For the pasta, well, you need to have someone actually do the prep, quickly if the hike went long, and set the table, and make a second, ecc.)

  6. I like to liven my scrambled eggs up with a good helping of chilli flakes. Alternatively, some finely chopped up smoked salmon towards the end of cooking is tasty.
