Its springtime, so cooking with herbs is always a must! This simple egg dish was inspired by the famous Hotel Sacher in Salzburg, Austria. The hotel first opened in 1876 in Vienna and has been the rendez-vous location for foreign dignitaries and artisans throughout the years. My mom and I toured Europe this past summer and fell in love with the Austria’s rich history, beautiful gardens, majestic mountains, and scrumptious food! We enjoyed a late morning brunch at the classic hotel famous for their chocolate “Sacher torte.” They even have a boutique that just sells and ships the fancy chocolate cake!
Breakfast in Austria is bountiful and filled with hard cheeses, meats, muesli, fresh fruit and hot coffee. Their coffee always comes in the cutest mini teapots with steamed milk! On the menu was rosemary infused bacon, which we ordered and turned out to be a crispy, salty perfection! This is my Austrian inspired creation for a delicious and satisfying breakfast.

Grass-fed Meat and Your Health!
Meat from pasture raised, grass-fed animals is rich in Omega 3 essential fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory, cancer fighting and muscle building nutrients. Cattle and other grazing animals were designed to feed off fresh grasses and shrubs that grow in the wild, rather than be confined to slaughter houses and feed pens. Cows and ruminants have multiple stomachs designed to digest insoluble fiber in the form of grass, and leafy green plants.
Beef and pork from pasture raised animals contains the proper ratio of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. The ratio of 3:6 is necessary for our body to inflame and anti-inflame to keep our heart healthy, muscles flexible, and immune system responsive.
Conventional, cheep, and poorly raised meat is full of toxins from pesticide sprayed grains to synthetic growth hormones. Toxins naturally accumulate in the fatty tissue, thus quality of meat is vital!
At the end of the day, you are what you eat—choose quality over quantity!
