Clean the mushroom with a paper towel without washing and cut into small pieces.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, salt, pepper, and add a little garlic and parsley if you like.

Melt a good nob of butter in a hot frying pan and cook the mushrooms. Once the mushroom has reduced and there is no liquid, add the egg mixture and reduce the heat. Cook for a few minutes until the eggs are set.
