Ingredients

  • 12 ounces chopped mushrooms (a mix)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (about 1 ounce)
  • A drizzle of black truffle oil (optional)

Directions

  1. 1.

    Preheat the oven to 425°F. Toss the mushrooms and olive oil on a baking sheet, season with salt, spread in a single layer, and roast until golden-brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool; lower the oven to 375°F.

  2. 2.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, parmesan, truffle oil, a pinch of salt, and the cooled mushrooms. Pour into 12 lightly greased muffin cups, and bake until puffed and golden around the edges, about 25 minutes. Serve immediately
