At a meeting yesterday, someone shared with me that they were going to make their wife a delicious breakfast with grilled asparagus, whichÂ got me thinking about how to celebrate mom with a fresh, delicious breakfast from the Farmer’s Market.
I’ve been going weekly to the Farmer’s Market at the College of San Mateo. Â Some of the fresh, local foods that I’ve been seeing include asparagus, strawberries, oranges, lemons, spinach, eggs, plus jams and much more. Â Here are a few recipe ideas to tap into the local ingredients available at the Farmer’s Markets near you:
– Love asparagus & spinach & eggs? Â Try this harvest friendly recipe Spinach and Asparagus Frittata from Food Network
– Sweet, juicy strawberries will be add the perfect finishing touch to this Creme Brulee French Toast. Â This is very similar to a recipe that I’ve made many times to rave reviews, it is decadent and also delicious with Cinnamon Bread available at the farmer’s market. Â Â Plus since you just pop this in the oven, you have more time to hang out with the family!
– Add a touch of this jam from We Love Jam on your toast for a delicious treat.
– Juice some oranges for fresh OJ or maybe even a mimosa.
