Millionaire’s Breakfast – Truffled Scrambled Eggs on Toast.
Simple is always the best way forward when it comes to enjoying a white truffle. Don’t start experimenting with a cupboard full of ingredients. Leave the spices on the shelf, salt and pepper only. What about herbs? Again I wouldn’t go messing around. You are eating a truffle, it’s a very powerful flavour and you don’t want other flavours challenging it.
The accompanying ingredients in the dish really just serve as a vehicle for the truffle given that you can’t bite into one like you would do with an apple. The complex flavour binds itself well to fats which means that scrambled eggs with cream or butter are ideal partners to the white winter truffle. Now scrambled eggs sounds a very dull way to serve such a rare, precious ingredient but trust me the dish is one of the best ways to serve the tuber magnatum and you won’t be disappointed.
So there you have it, one of the greatest ways to serve a white truffle and it is also the easiest. Amazing food does not need to be overcomplicated…
