Herbed Scrambled-Egg Toasts with Bottarga

“What’s simpler, more affordable and more universally liked than an egg?” says Tamar Adler. Here, she cooks them with herbs and spoons them onto toasts with shaved bottarga.

  1. 16 large eggs
  2. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped chives
  7. 40 thin baguette slices, rubbed with olive oil and toasted
  8. 1/4 cup finely shaved bottarga (see Note)
  9. Freshly ground pepper
  10. Lemon wedges, for serving
  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with 1/4 cup of the oil and the salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1/4 cup of oil with 1 tablespoon of the butter over very low heat. Add the eggs and cook, stirring with a rubber spatula and gradually adding the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter, until soft, creamy and just beginning to form curds, about 12 minutes. Fold in the parsley and chives.
  2. Spoon the eggs onto the toasts and top with the shaved bottarga. Season with pepper and serve warm, with lemon wedges.
Make Ahead

The cooked eggs can be kept warm in a bowl set over a pot of hot water for up to 30 minutes.

Notes

Bottarga (salted, pressed and dried mullet roe) has a deep sea flavor and firm texture. It is available at specialty food stores, Italian markets and online at gustiamo.com.

Suggested Pairing

These fluffy, creamy eggs call for airy sparkling wine. Pour the lively NV Estate Brut from Roederer—a California winery established by a Champagne producer.
