Father's Day Breakfast Bake

Nothing says, 'I love this man' like a deliciously macho Father's Day Breakfast Bake to kick off his Sunday.  This recipe is so tasty and easy though, you'll make it every time you need an extra great start to your day. 

Sourwood has been my undisputed favorite varietal of honey since the very first time I tasted it. I remember exactly where I was the first time.  Physically I was standing at the Wilmington Island Showroom's Honey Tasting Bar, but I was actually falling down a rabbit hole of sweet culinary bliss.  I had no idea honey could taste so rich and delicate at the same time.  There is a beautiful depth to Sourwood with hints of ginger, cinnamon, and caramel.  It's not too sweet and not sour at all - despite the name.  The Sourwood Tree was named by the Native Americans who used to chew on the bark for vitamins.  The bark might have tasted like "sour wood" - the honey is anything but. 

This award-winning honey is my choice for this week's un•bee•lievable Father's Day menu.  I use locally sourced, responsibly raised ingredients. I grow the herbs in my garden- if I can do it anyone can.  I also love Whole Foods where I can find local farms' produce cheaper than most farmers markets.
