"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks

"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
This quick French way of cooking eggs is similar to an omelette, but with the egg simply drawn in towards the centre during the brief cooking.

The eggs here are cooked with sautéed leeks and served with delicious morteau sausage "crisps".

Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 15 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Prepare 500 g leek and slice into rounds but not too thinly.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Prepare 1 shallot and chop finely.

Set aside.

Stage 3 - 5 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Beat 6 Eggs, salt and pepper.

Set aside.

Stage 4 - 2 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a frying pan on high heat. When hot, add the chopped shallot.

Salt and pepper, then cook for 1 minute without colouring.

Stage 5 - 1 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Add the leeks.

Mix well.

Stage 6 - 7 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Cook uncovered until the leeks just begin to brown, then salt and pepper.

Heat the plates.

Stage 7 - 1 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Pour the beaten eggs over the leeks and leave undisturbed for 1 minute.

Stage 8 - 5 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Use a wooden spatula to draw the egg from the edge in towards the centre of the pan.

Stage 9
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Continue doing this until there is no more liquid egg left.

Take off the heat immediately. It is normal, and desirable, for a little of the egg in the centre of the pan still to be not quite cooked.

Stage 10 - 3 min.
"Oeufs rabattus" with leeks
Transfer onto hot plates and garnish possibly with morteau sausage "crisps".
Like in some omelette recipes, you can add a little cream to the beaten eggs if you wish, but it is not essential.
Should be eaten immediately.
Home made.
