Sunday morning brunch ~ Brioche with eggs and mushrooms.

A delicious recipe adapted from La Cuisine Paris. Easy and fun to prepare! Serves four.

Whipped cream with juice of mushrooms and truffle salt.

Recipes as follows:
 You will need 1 loaf of brioche type bread, sliced thick, located in bakery section of grocery store. Also, 4 eggs, 2 cups of seasonal mushrooms, sliced, 1 clove of garlic chopped fine, 1 bunch of parsley chopped..... save some for decoration, 1/2 cup of whipping cream, 4 T. of butter, some truffle salt and pepper.

 Clean mushrooms and parsley. Chop garlic and 2 T. parsley.

Without adding butter, quickly saute mushrooms. Save any liquid from the pan and set aside.

 When mushrooms are almost cooked, now add 2 T. of butter, garlic, parsley and gently saute.

Whip the cream until foamy. Keep beating the cream and now add the truffle salt and pepper. Set aside.

Take 4 pieces of the brioche and with a cookie cutter, remove the center. Save this circle of bread.

Heat the remaining 2T. of butter in a frying pan: add brioche slices and now crack the eggs in the center and cook for 2 minutes on each side, flipping over gently with spatula.
 Place each egg filled brioche on a cookie sheet and put in a hot oven at 350  degrees for 2 minutes.
Serve immediately and top with whipped cream. Pour a little juice from mushrooms on top of whipped cream. Add brioche circle and parsley.

What an elegant breakfast. I so happen to have a little jar of truffle salt I've been hoarding in my cupboard. This would be an excellent time to use it.

So delicious and here in Provence I don't even have to bake the Brioche myself - my baker does a very, very good one!
