Don’t let dates be the ignored, dried fruit. It’s a perfect ingredient to add to your breakfast dish!
I’ll confess that I used to keep dates only for recipes, such as Wrapped & Stuffed Dates. Besides being a vehicle for cheese, what would I need dates for? Then I let my creativity go to work and realized there are so many more options, including Monday’s Date & Pancetta Scones.
Here are two more ways to get dates into your morning eating.
Date Spread– It’s not really a jelly or jam but definitely could act like one on a piece of toast or an English muffin. What makes it better than homemade jam is how easy it is to make. Try this recipe, and you’ll never consider buying pre-made date spread.
Spiced Date Biscotti– Have you ever had a hermit bar? They’re these bar cookies that have all sorts of baking spices, dates, and other dried fruit. These biscotti are a nicely crunchy play on that cookie. Even better than a hermit, it’s acceptable to eat biscotti for breakfast.
Whether you have five minutes or an hour, you can choose one of these recipes and have a new treat at breakfast!
If you want one more easy date recipe, these Brandied Dates make a lovely topping for ice cream or pound cake.
