Sweet and Savory Eggs For Breakfast

Carol (resident chef at Hillcrest Hide-Away Bed and Breakfast in Lanesboro, Minnesota) likes to alternate between sweet and savory entree’s for breakfast.  Some days when she can’t decide, Sweet and Savory Eggs fit the bill.

Carol likes to use fresh ingredients as much as possible in her recipes.  We have large sage and chive plants in our garden that provide two key ingredients to this recipe.

Apples offer an unexpected sweet surprise once you bite into the omelet.

Paired with one of Carol’s scones straight from the oven, this breakfast is one you’ll remember.
