I love using fresh herbs in breakfast dishes. There are so many ways you can add a great splash of flavor to your breakfast by using fresh or dried herbs. I have 3 favorite herbs to cook with, rosemary, basil and mints. I grow rosemary all over our yard so I have plenty to use year round, my basil is grown in the veggie garden and only last till cold weather hits and I have about 10 different varieties of mints that grow in pots and most of them last year round also.
I have to admit, I don’t follow recipes much, but I learned to follow my nose. I learned that if you combine two herbs by smelling them together, that if it is a good smell, it will be a good taste. I love to combine citrus, dried or fresh zest with many herbs for breakfast also. I have a basic biscuit recipe that makes super fluffy ones, and I love to mix and match different herbs in them to add flavor to enhance the smell, sight and taste of these biscuits.
I also love to add herbs to eggs, one of my favorites is Rosemary cream cheese eggs, that I came up with when we first opened the b&b. Simply add fresh snipped rosemary to the eggs and a few dollops of cream cheese right at the end and keep them at a soft scramble, they melt in your mouth.
If you love to cook and can have a few herb plants, then please try
your hand at cooking with herbs in your breakfast. If you come up with a good combination, please share with me. Happy cooking.
