Sous-Vide Truffled Scrambled Eggs

Welcome back to Truffle Tuesday!

Day one of our diet went fine. We found ourselves wanting snacks a few times, and one bottle of wine between the two of us turned out to be a bit of a challenge.  But all told, really not bad.  Still looking forward to cheat day, though :D.
