In Sweden, we had foraged so many chanterelles that I wanted to try to make breakfast with the delicious mushrooms too. I always love mushrooms with eggs and chanterelles are just amazing.

Try making this chanterelle omelette with fried chanterelles, mozzarella cheese, and cherry tomatoes. It is super tasty and very filling. An omelette can easily be shared between 2 people and served with a bit of toasted bread.
