This breakfast dish is easy to prep for special brunches and everyday breakfasts alike, using wild mushrooms, Fontina cheese, and leeks to elevate eggs.

You know that feeling when you want eggs, but you don’t just want scrambled eggs? Enter Hudson Hil’s shirred eggs recipe. As anyone who’s ever stopped by the Cold Spring eatery for breakfast can attest, Hudson Hil’s knows how to start the day right. (Good luck choosing between the sweet and savory options on the menu.) So, while you might not be able to make it to the restaurant every morning for the a.m. meal of your dreams, you can recreate a sliver of that breakfast goodness in your own home with this easy recipe.

Plus, this recipe is easily adaptable to work with your preferences or what you happen to have in the fridge. Prefer cheddar to Fontina? No problem. Like spinach better than Swiss chard? Swap it out. In no time at all, you’ll have a restaurant-worthy breakfast on the table for you and your family.
