  • In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat, swirling the pan to coat.

  • When the butter foams, add the eggs and let them settle for a few seconds.

  • Gently lift the skillet and begin swirling the eggs until they reach the edges of the pan.

  • When the eggs begin to dry, remove the skillet from the heat. Spread with the crème fraîche.

  • Arrange the cheese and ham down the center of the eggs.

  • Fold in the sides (like swaddling a doll), creating a cone shape.
