Mushrooms sautéed in butter, garlic, thyme and white pepper then topped with gruyere and truffle infused eggs – it’s the perfect gooey home for some fresh crusty bread.


What you need

  • Glass jar
  • Cast iron skillet


Serves 2

  • 1 small black truffle
  • Good nob of butter
  • 400g mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3 tablespoons pure cream
  • 1/2 cup shaved gruyere
  • 6 eggs, infused with truffle
  • To serve: shaved truffle, fresh crusty bread, butter



  1. To infuse your eggs: put 6 eggs in a glass jar with the truffle wrapped up in paper towel. Pop into the fridge for at least 24 hours.
  1. To make the baked eggs: Preheat oven to 200°C.
  1. In the cast iron skillet, melt the butter and when foaming, add the mushrooms and season with sea salt and freshly grated pepper. Cook until they are soft and tender. Add the garlic,thyme and white pepper for the last 2 minutes. Stir in the cream.
