Herbes de Provence

I got some Herbes de Provence for Christmas, and don't know what to put it on any suggestions?

Thanks!

It's great on chicken, shrimp, roasted potatoes, etc.

what form is it in, betterthan?

is it a powder or a rough grind up of the dried herbs?

the most common thing that i use herbs de provence is in soups and stews.

I usually use it with meats and potatoes with the olive oil or even on pizza

Sous and stews are a great place for this herb mix.

I make the New York Times no-knead bread, and I sprinkle HdP on top before I bake. (And I put it on chicken and pork chops and and pretty much anything that holds still long enough.)

I just remembered a recipe I recently made where I mixed some with softened butter and spread it on a prime rib roast before roasting.

It's the seasoning I use in home made seasoned bread crumbs. For some reason I dislike the taste of pre-packaged seasoned bread crumbs.

Well, I use Herbes de provence a lot since my parents live for a period of the year in Cannes.
Use it on Red grilled meat (season with extravirgin olive oil and a pinch of herbes de provence). It is really good also on roasted potatoes and on tomatoes!
