The light anise notes from the tarragon make a natural pairing for eggs and also complement the earthiness of the mushrooms.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place mushrooms in a bowl, and cover with boiling water. Cover and let stand 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well; coarsely chop.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots; sauté 1 minute. Add mushrooms; sauté 2 minutes. Add broth and juice; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream. Stir in 1 teaspoon chives, 1 teaspoon tarragon, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place mushroom sauce in a small bowl; cover and keep warm. Wipe pan clean with a paper towel.

Step 3

Heat pan over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Whisk together remaining 1 teaspoon chives, 1 teaspoon tarragon, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, eggs, and egg whites. Pour egg mixture into pan. Cook for 4 minutes or until soft-scrambled, stirring frequently.

Step 4

Place 2 muffin halves, cut sides up, on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with about 3 tablespoons sauce and 1/4 cup eggs.

So simple to pull together and such a great way to get the full taste of fresh morels. Instead of an english muffin I used a hearty loaf of wheat nut bread we had bought at the bakery. The nutty flavor complemented the woody mushroom flavor very well. Will make again -- probably next week!

This was yummy and my first time cooking with fresh morels, which were available at the farmer's market. I put it over kalamata olive dark bread for a different flavor and dinner presentation.
