Mushroom & Sage Scrambled Eggs
It’s no secret... eggs are a breakfast staple. The possibilities are almost endless - Eggs Benedict? Breakfast burrito? Bacon-filled omelet? Decisions!
While the choices are many, usually the morning, especially before the coffee’s on, isn’t the time for whipping up an ingredient-filled and time consuming breakfast. But we wouldn’t recommend sacrificing flavor for convenience either. Here’s a quick trick for jazzing up your pre-workday eggs or a Sunday brunch feast: Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil.
Infused with herbaceous sage and earthy mushroom flavor, this oil adds a distinct flavor to any dish. If you love adding fresh veggies like mushrooms to your scrambled eggs, but don’t always have them on hand (hey, it happens!), this oil will provide that flavor you’re seeking.
The preparation of the eggs is as important as actually scrambling them. When whipping the eggs, add 1/4 teaspoon of the Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil, and continue to whip, allowing the flavor to permeate the mixture. Don’t be afraid to really whisk ‘em up - the air helps ensure fluffiness. Add eggs to a greased skillet on low-heat. It’s best to cook them slow and low, stirring gently and frequently. For a more fragrant dish, finish the eggs with a small drizzle of the oil once on your plate.
The versatility of the Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil is one of its best features. It can enhance rice, pasta, and risotto dishes or elevate your favorite stuffing recipe. Use it as a marinade to add an earthy flavor to chicken or pork. Try pairing this oil with our Fig Balsamic Vinegar or Cranberry Pear Balsamic Vinegar to make a unique vinaigrette or marinade.
