Enjoy your luxurious Truffle Borchii/Bianchetto Eggs, a dish that combines the simplicity of eggs with the extravagance of truffles, offering a truly gourmet experience.



  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-2 ounces fresh Truffle Borchii/Bianchetto, thinly shaved
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh chives or parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for serving)
  • Slices of crusty bread, for serving




  • Prep the Truffle: Clean the Truffle Borchii/Bianchetto by gently brushing any dirt off its surface. Use a truffle slicer or a very sharp knife to shave the truffle into very thin slices. Set aside.
  • Prep the Eggs: Crack the eggs into a bowl, being careful not to break the yolks. It’s best to crack each egg separately before adding it to the bowl to ensure that no shell fragments are mixed in.

    Cook the Eggs:

  • Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over low to medium heat. Add the unsalted butter and allow it to melt, swirling the pan to coat evenly.
  • Once the butter is melted and starts to bubble slightly, carefully pour the eggs into the skillet. The key to creamy, gently cooked eggs is to keep the heat low.
  • Season the eggs lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    Add the Truffle:
  • As the eggs begin to set around the edges but are still slightly runny on top, sprinkle half of the shaved Truffle Borchii/Bianchetto evenly over the eggs.
  • Using a spatula, gently fold the eggs over themselves, scrambling slightly until they are just set but still soft and creamy. Avoid overcooking; the residual heat will continue to cook the eggs even after they are removed from the heat.

  • Immediately transfer the eggs to warmed plates to stop the cooking process.
  • Garnish the eggs with the remaining shaved truffle, freshly chopped chives or parsley, and a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

  • Serve the Truffle Borchii/Bianchetto eggs with slices of crusty bread for a complete and satisfying meal. The bread is perfect for soaking up the flavorful eggs and capturing every bit of the truffle's aroma.

Tips for Success:

  • Use Fresh Truffles: For the best flavor, use fresh truffles. Their aroma and taste are most potent when freshly shaved.
  • Low and Slow: Cooking the eggs on a low heat ensures they remain tender and don't become overcooked or rubbery.
  • Serving Immediately: Eggs continue to cook with residual heat even after they're removed from the stove, so serve them immediately to enjoy their perfect texture.
