Yield: serves 2

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 medium shallot, peeled and minced
  • 6 oz. (3 cups) fresh chanterelles, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 12 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Melt 2 tbsp. butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, shallots, and chanterelles and cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to a bowl, add lemon juice and half of the chopped parsley, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Wipe out skillet, add remaining 2 tbsp. butter, and melt over medium-high heat. Beat cream into eggs, then pour into skillet and cook for 30 seconds, lifting cooked edges with a spatula to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath. Spoon mushrooms into center of still slightly runny eggs. Fold closed and cook for 1 minute more. Slide omelette onto a warmed platter, season to taste with salt and pepper, and garnish with remaining chopped parsley.
