How to Make Creamy French Eggs


  1. In a small bowl, add eggs, Dijon mustard, 2 tbsp. heavy cream, salt and pepper. Scrambled the mixture using a fork until very well incorporated and set aside.
  2. In a small skillet over medium-low heat, add butter and when it gets hot, add egg mixture. Stir with spatula, lifting the skillet often to cool off while still stirring.
  3. 10 minutes later, add cheese and the remaining 2 tbsp. cream. Continue stirring, lifting the pan to cool off, until the eggs thicken, about another 10 minutes. Add chopped chives, stir and cook for 30 seconds.
