Herbes de Provence - uses

How do you use this blend of herbs? Jacques Pepin uses it all the time in his TV shows; Wikipedia says it's typically used for grilled meat and fish and in vegetable stews; I've made an omelet with it in place of fines herbes, and like it. Any more ideas?

  1. an element of a dry rub on soon-to-be-roasted chicken, sprinkled on hard-boiled eggs, anywhere you might use parsley, but want something a bit more uhh, floral.

    1. It is fantastic on roast chicken. I also like using it on oven roasted potatoes.

        Second both these uses. Fabulous!!

          +1 to both prior posts. I just used it with potatoes roasted in duck fat and on a roast chicken (along with dijon mustard, olive oil, minced garlic and a bit of white wine). Yummy!

      2. I use it in dips, marinades and salad dressing, sandwich spreads.
        Along with fresh minced garlic on any protein before grilling.
        Garlic bread.
        Grilled veggies.
        Scrambled eggs.
        Tuna, egg & chicken salad
        Cold pasta salad

        1. Grilled lamb, lamb, lamb. Used in a marinade with olive oil, pepper, minced garlic, lemon juice for a few hours and then baste while grilling. The wild thyme and lavender in the mix add wonderful flavors to grilled lamb

          1. Herbes de provence is my go-to addition for scrambled eggs. So easy and delicious.
