cook mushrooms. Remove from pan & keep in a warm place.

eggs into the pan.
3. Hold the pan in one hand and push
it backward & forwards over the heat. With your other hand,
using a fork move the egg around in circles, using the back of
4. When the consistency is like wet scrambled egg spread the
egg over the bottom of the pan evenly (the cooking time so far
should be only about 30 seconds). Add the mushrooms and brie down
the middle of the egg, (you have to work quickly or the egg will
overcook). Fold one third of the egg onto the middle, pick the
pan up and flip the whole thing onto the plate.

There is really no advanced preparation that can
be done, it is all very quick & easy.
