How to Choose Herbs and Spices to Accompany Eggs

What spices can be used with egg dishes, including scrambled, frittata, and omelets?

Seriously? Because you can do almost anything with eggs.

Here is a list of a some of the herbs and spices that are said to go especially well will eggs: basil, chervil, chili powder, chives, curry, cumin powder, dill, fennel, fines herbes, marjoram, paprika, parsley, savory, tarragon, and thyme. Some people will claim our list misses their favorite flavoring, but what can you do?

Omelets have traditionally relied on parsley, tarragon, chervil, or chives, alone or in some combination. A frittata often includes chunks of meat, vegetable, or cheese with no prominent herb, but there is a classic basil frittata (with or without zucchini or tomato and onion) and also one made with gremolata the mixture of parsley, lemon zest, and chopped garlic. We're pretty sure you can find recipes for scrambled eggs that include every herb or spice known to mankind.

The problem for you is that there are so many herbs and spices that go well with eggs, it may take you quite a while to work your way through them to find the ones you like best.
