These over-the-top eggs are ready for the weekend. This restaurant-style scramble is so creamy and custardy, you’d think it requires some complicated technique. But nope, just whisk your way to glory—I like to use the 2-Quart Saucier from All-Clad's D3® Stainless collection. The scrambled eggs are finished with butter and crème fraîche, drizzled with maple, and dolloped with trout roe—ready for scooping up with buttery brioche soldiers. —Sohla El-Waylly

thick slices brioche bread
unsalted butter, cut into cubes and divided
Coarsely ground black pepper
- Using a serrated knife, slice the crust off the brioche and cut into 1-inch-thick strips. Crack the eggs into a medium bowl, season with salt, and whisk until homogenous and no streaks of white remain. Warm two serving bowls in a low oven.
- In a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter until foaming. Add the brioche strips and fry until golden-brown, 1 minute. Flip bread, add another tablespoon of butter, and fry the other side, 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat, lightly season with salt, and set aside (keep the bread in the skillet to stay warm).
- In a 2-quart saucier over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter until foamy. Add the eggs, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, whisking constantly, until the eggs begin to look thickened with lots of small curds running throughout, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and whisk until melted. Remove from heat, whisk in the crème fraîche, and divide between warmed bowls.
- Drizzle the eggs with maple syrup, sprinkle with black pepper, and dollop with trout roe. Serve immediately with brioche soldiers alongside.
