I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

on an omelette roll

… yeah yeah, quit rolling yer eyes (and don’t think I can’t see you ’cause I can, lol). Just a quickie post y’all … mushrooms (cremini today) are always a must, fresh herbs too (oregano, thyme, Italian parsley) when available from my garden (and don’t forget my use the best eggs rule) … but what I’m really impressed/surprised with … and admittedly I stumbled upon it purely by accident, is the combination of two cheeses … had a bit of both – equal portions left in the fridge, so it was a no-brainer – Greek feta and creamy havarti!! I’ve NEVER EVER seen those used in tandem … in ANY meal, or any recipe … so yes, I will deservedly take credit (please forgive me while I sit back and gloat, lol). The crumbly, dry, saltiness of the feta plays off beautifully of the easy to melt, smooth textured, mild and slightly nutty flavour of the havarti … what a beautiful combination … sheer genius – if I do say so myself!! A couple of pics … served with generously buttered toasted English muffins … enjoy!!
