"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".

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.
