APPLE WEEK Brekkie Time! I threw this recipe together yesterday and wow.. SO GOOD. The combination of tastes and textures seems tailored made for fall. The warmth and softness of the eggs, the melty tang of the Swiss, the play of apple off shallot and the sage – don’t forget the sage! That woodsy scent draws everything together. Even though it dropped below freezing last night, our sage plant seems to be holding its own. Thank goodness. With all those soon-to-be-laid fresh eggs, I’ll be enjoying this often.
