Are you searching for paleo breakfast ideas to cook during your busy mornings? Are you always having a hard time figuring out what breakfast to prepare before going to work? Below are five easy-to-make paleo breakfast recipes that serve as good breakfast alternatives.
Bacon and Eggs Brussels Sprouts
Bacon and eggs are a staple of the paleo diet. They are packed with protein and fat and are included in most lists of paleo breakfast ideas. This recipe uses brussel sprouts to enhance texture and taste further but is still easy to prepare. Great for a Monday morning breakfast power meal.
- 6 pcs. bacon, sliced into bite-sized pieces
- 4 large eggs
- 1 lb. brussels sprouts, sliced in quarters
- ½ chopped onion
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 3 tablespoons water
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
- Place bacon in a pan over medium heat. Fry until crispy.
- Turn off the stove and place bacon on a plate over paper towels to soak up oil from the bacon and to keep it crispy.
- Remove excess burnt bacon bits in the pan, but save as much bacon fat as possible.
- Use remaining bacon fat to fry the brussels sprouts and onions. Stir sporadically until vegetables turn golden. Add pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to season.
- Pour 2 tablespoons of water and cover the pan. Cook until the brussels sprouts become tender and water has evaporated (around 5 minutes). If the water is gone before the brussels sprouts become tender, just add more water and cover.
- Place in garlic and continue to cook.
- Create four holes in the mixture so that the bottom of the pan is exposed. Crack and place one egg into every hole. Season eggs with salt and pepper.
- Cover again and cook eggs according to your preference.
- Sprinkle the cooked bacon slices.
- Serve while warm.
