Russian Style Chanterelles Over Eggs and Toast

Please share

Creamy mushrooms flavored with sour cream and bacon are served over toast for a real culinary treat! 

Small plate with a piece of toast topped with soft scrambled eggs topped with chanterelle mushrooms in a sour cream sauce with bacon and onions.

After trying the chanterelles my father-in-law gave us on the AMAZING Chanterelle Tart, two things went through my mind.

  1. Thank goodness those were really chanterelles and nobody had any ill effects.
  2. When can I get MORE?!

 I was instantly hooked.  When I asked my father-in-law what his favorite way to have them was, he answered with eggs.  

So, I knew I wanted to try them that way as well.  It worked out that little dude had a week off of daycare.

We hadn’t been to grandpa’s farm in a while, so we were hoping to visit.  We couldn’t help that the visit happened to be during mushroom season. 😉

This recipe is really pretty simple.  It might not be the showiest presentation either, but it is super delicious!  

My husband, who could usually take or leave this kind of thing, really liked it too.  I am sure it would be good with a variety of mushrooms, but now we are ruined by chanterelles.  What have we started?!  

I made a little video/slideshow of our trip to “old McGrandpa’s farm.”  We sing the song that way about all of the things he has there.  

They have everything from milking goats to bees… and of course mushrooms.  Feel free to take a peek at our morning on the farm!

If you like egg recipes, you may also like eggs benedict tarts. Or try making a Denver omelet roll.

For more mushroom goodness, try making some mushroom risotto. Or make an easy garlicky mushroom flatbread using crescent dough as a base.

It is particularly helpful for dishes in which the bread is utilized to splash up fluid fixings.

What an adorable video! I love all the fun things to do, Jax will love visiting again and again as he grows up. He will treasure that time. I love the goat, donkey, and the trains. But the best part of the vid was Jax all tuckered out at the end!

I have never tried Chanterelles, now I have too. I love mushrooms and this looks delish!
