bergamot chocolate profiteroles with candied orange
Eggs, omelets and breakfast sandwiches continue to be the Top Selling items on breakfast menus.*
But it is important not to forget that this popular breakfast entrée also serves as a staple ingredient throughout the day. In fact, the pleats in a chef's toque stand as a symbol for the versatility of eggs.
This single ingredient can be scrambled for breakfast, and in the same day, incorporated in lunch, dinner or even delectable dessert items like our Bergamot Chocolate Profiteroles with Candied Orange.

ingredient review: bergamot
Bergamot is "believed to be a cross between a lime and a sour orange." Its zest can often be found in pastries and other sweet confections, and its sour notes do well in marmalades and curds.**
