3 large eggs

1/4 cup heavy cream

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon creme fraiche

1 tablespoon chopped chives


  1. Whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a medium bowl until the mixture is homogenous.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture, then increase the heat to medium-high. Stir with a rubber spatula until curds begin to form. Lower the heat to low and add the creme fraiche and chives. Stir until the creme fraiche is fully incorporated and the eggs are just set.
  3. Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
