Whether scrambled, in omelets or in soufflés, and varied with every imaginable sauce, eggs have always been part of the French appetizer selection, from the Middle Ages to the present. Today, however, this type of dish would be just as suited to the place of honor in a light luncheon.
8 eggs
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup thick creme fraiche
1 tablespoon minced chives
2 oz salmon roe (caviar)
4 small dill sprigs
Scrambled Eggs with Salmon Roe Recipe at
Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them with a fork, adding some salt and pepper.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over very low heat. Add the beaten eggs through a strainer (this will give you a smooth mixture and eliminate the threads). Cook the eggs over very low heat, whisking all the while, until you have a thick, smooth cream. Cooking time will vary according to taste, but the eggs must on no account become hard or crumbly - they must remain creamy.

Take the saucepan off the heat and pour in the creme fraiche; this will stop the cooking and make the eggs even creamier. Add the chives and mix.

Divide the eggs among 4 deep plates, garnish with salmon roe and dill and serve. These eggs may be eaten warm or cold.
