In France, scrambled eggs are served soft, but you may prefer them almost set. When cooked to your taste, stir in the mushrooms. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve at once on warmed plates. fried croutons made with 2 slices country bread or baguette, cubed and fried in 2 tablespoons/30 g butter (see page 374) 4 eggs 1 /4 cup/60 ml heavy cream four 1/2-cup/125-ml ramekins Heat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Butter the ramekins. Melt the butter in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the scallions and fry, stirring often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
Locals insist that crème fraîche must fall from the spoon, neither too thick nor too thin (see “Inimitable Crème Fraîche,” page 320). To my mind, the best texture is achieved when the eggs play second fiddle to the cream. I have a few more tips of my own: The pastry shell must first be baked blind (empty) so the custard filling does not make it soggy. The bacon should be the best, not too salty, and cut from the piece in true lardons, or strips, not dice. The lardons should be fried in butter (not on their own or in oil) until just starting to brown; if overdone, they will be hard.
Choose a wooden or marble board for serving (not metal or plastic, which affects taste). You can also use flat basket trays, but always line them with doilies, paper napkins, or, best of all, vine leaves. In fact, almost any garden leaf that is flat, nontoxic, and not bitter is a pleasing substitute. At home, the ideal cheese board has three or four large pieces of different cheeses of contrasting texture and taste. France follows the rule of three: cheeses that are soft and velvety (chèvres, Saint-Nectaire, or Tommes, for example); cheeses that are aromatic, ranging from Cantal to Camembert; and strong cheeses (blue and sheep cheeses, for instance, or smelly Époisses).
