  1. Stir-fry the mushrooms and leek separately in half the butter for 5 mins and set aside.
  2. Put the eggs, chives and milk in a bowl, season and whisk lightly.
  3. Heat the remaining butter in a frying pan. Add a quarter of the egg mixture to the pan and stir until almost set. Top with a quarter of the mushrooms, leek and Brie, and cook for 30 secs.
