  • 4 large brown or white eggs, or a mix
  • 1/8 cup heavy cream
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Creme fraiche, or sour cream, for serving
  • Salmon roe or sevruga caviar, or both, for serving


  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Hold an egg in one hand, tapered end up. Place an egg topper over the top, and squeeze, using a scissor motion. Discard top of egg. Pour egg into a medium bowl. Repeat with remaining eggs. Boil shells 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a wire rack. Let dry, cut sides down.

  2. Whisk together eggs and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add eggs. Using a rubber spatula, stir to create curds and slide eggs from edges to center. Cook until set, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Transfer eggs to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain round tip. Pipe eggs into shells. Transfer shells to egg cups. Top with creme fraiche and caviar.
