When I think of thyme, I think of butter basted lemon and thyme roast chicken.
On my way home from grocery shopping yesterday, in amongst other things, my bag contained a charcoal roast chicken (in order to make chicken sandwiches for packed lunch) and a punnet of fresh thyme. As the aroma of the charcoal chicken and fresh thyme started to mingle on my tram ride home, boy oh boy, it was such a tantalizing scent! Naturally, my stomach started to grumble and it felt like the longest tram ride ever ha!
I have a feeling that you may see a thyme and poultry related recipe post very soon, but today is all about using thyme in a fun way!
If orange and rosemary can work together in desserts (mainly cakes), I can’t see why not pairing thyme and orange together in a sweet dish. So I thought of this beautiful combination of flavours to go with plain french toast sticks and toasted pine nuts for some crunch.
Hmmm, I can’t decide whether to call this a dessert or breakfast but I am fine with either way. What do you think? 😉
