How To Use All of Those Garlic Scapes

Do you have tons of garlic scapes? They are those curly things that cork screw out of the top of your garlic plants. They are yummy and filled with flavor. You can use them just like you use chives but they have more of a garlic flavor rather than an oniony flavor. This is my favorite way to use them.

They are pretty too!

Chop some up and saute' them in a bit of butter with salt and pepper.

Pour in several beaten eggs.

Lift the eggs around the edges to allow the liquid to set. When the eggs are almost set, sprinkle on a bit of cheese, I used cheddar.

Fold the omelet in from each side.

Flip it over and let it sit in the pan off of the heat for a minute or so to cook through.

Slide it out on a platter.

Cut into individual servings. To kick it up a notch, I fried some eggplant and served it on top of it.

This is pretty much what The Blog Tech looks like each morning.

He likes to chow down!

He loves being surprised by what I make him each day.

And shows me how much he appreciates it. He works for food!
