Method

  • 01
  • Heat half the butter and half the oil in a 24cm-diameter frying pan over medium-high heat until foaming, add half the mushrooms and half the garlic, season to taste and stir occasionally until browned (3-4 minutes), then reduce heat to medium.
  • 02
  • Whisk half the egg and half the herbs in a bowl to combine, season to taste, pour into pan, shaking pan to distribute herbs evenly.
