Bacon & Root Veggie Hash

Jon made breakfast this morning. He tried a new Paleo breakfast recipe out where the main ingredient is parsnip. Well, Bacon & Root Veggie Hash turned out great, especially if you like the taste of fennel.

Pre-planned Breakfast Idea

fall

Boy, things get lonely when 14+ hour shifts start! It’s just the kids and I, leftover supper, an attempt to walk at the park made (brrrr, too cold!) and some crafts tonight. One thing I have started doing is making breakfast the night before for everyone…That way if hubby (he’s up at 5 am every morning) doesn’t have time to prepare breakfast and is running late, it’s a 30 second zap and he’s got a nutritious plate of food ready to eat. Plus if I’m running late, or the kids decide to argue over clothes, tv, making their bed, brushing their teeth or just overall being pokey…well, it saves me

Eggs & Bacon Mini Muffins

Breakfasts are always the “challenge meal” for me. Other than eggs & bacon, pancakes and quiche, the first meal of the day can become monotonous. So stumbling on an easy, tasty and kid-friendly recipe that can save precious minutes when you’re rushed, was a relief!

Eggs & Bacon Mini muffins are delicious and provide a full meal in a small package. My daughter and son love them, I pair them with some cherry tomatoes, while Jon heats them up an eats them up while driving into work. Next time, I am going to let my children make their own special batch, while I make a spicier tray for hubby.

Ingredients

6 eggs
2 Tbsp of bacon grease
3 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
6 Tbsp coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
8 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions

  • Mix ingredients and dry ingredients in separate bowls and slowly combine.
  • Add onions and bacon. Mix well.
  • Use either a lined or greased mini muffin tray and fill 2/3 full with Eggs & Bacon batter.
  • Place in preheated oven (400 degrees) and baked between 12-15 minutes.
  • Let cool and then enjoy!

Other ingredient options: Customized this recipe and get creative. Add some red peppers (cooked), finely diced mushroom, finely chopped spinach, a little garlic, cayenne pepper, Goat Gouda cheese etc…

 

When in doubt, make quiche!

Short on time? Make quiche. Lots of leftovers? Make quiche. Too busy? Make quiche. My fool proof go-to is…QUICHE! Chop up spinach, throw in minced garlic & onions, last night’s left over chicken, dice up some tomatoes, add some olives and cover with 6-8 eggs. Plop it in the over at 350 for approximately 35 minutes and TADA! You’ve got yourself a delicious dinner, with little clean up and you breathed new life into your leftovers ūüôā

PLEASE NOTE: Times vary on ingredients, oven and the number of eggs used.

Paleo Breakfast: Pumpkin Pancakes

It has become a household tradition for Jon to make pancakes on the weekend. Yes, Jon is GREAT, he makes us pancakes! And since becoming Paleo, he’s been on a mission to find the best tasting pancake that falls in line with our lifestyle. We had a favorite and now have two favorites. The recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes was found in Practical Paleo¬†by Diane Sanfilippo¬†(BalancedBites.com)¬†and to say that it is delicious, somehow falls short. All family members will be satisfied by these.

Pumpkin Pancakes Ingredients

  • eggs
  • canned pumpkin puree
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • cinnamon
  • coconut oil
  • coconut flour
  • vanilla extract
  • maple syrup
  • salt

For the complete, easy to follow instructions for making this tasty recipe, click HERE.

COOKING CHANGE: Jon cut the amount of pure maple syrup required in half and instead drizzled some on top. Next batch, he plans on omitting maple syrup all together and just using it for a topping.

SIDE NOTE: Triple batch them and make some quick to-go breakfasts for the week ahead or give yourself a break next weekend and freeze these.

Thanks Balanced Bites!
