Hearty Paleo Breakfast Skillet
I have been LOVING hearty, comfort food meals lately, as I’m sure most of you have been too. Soups are being made on a regular basis, slow-cooked meats, along with mashed…well, anything. Thing is, coming up with hearty Paleo meals can get a little tricky.
Brown the bacon in a 12" cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the avo oil and onion and cook until onion is translucent. Add the garlic and sausage. Cook until the sausage is brown and crumbled, about 5-10 minutes.
Turn your broiler to high.
Add shredded butternut squash (shred with a julienne vegetable peeler or the shredding blade attachment on your food processor) and spinach and cook until soft, about 3-5 more minutes. Press small pockets into the mixture, enough to fit the number of eggs you'll be using. Crack the eggs into each of the pockets being careful not to break the yolks.
Broil on high to desired done-ness. I did the above skillet for 5 minutes and got medium runny yolks. Broil shorter for very runny or longer for a solid yolk.
Growing up, comfort foods generally meant one thing: carbs. AKA. bread. If you’re like me, the journey away from bread can be a slow (and sometimes torturous) one. So come fall/winter, when your mind might wander to homemade bread smells with melted butter (apple butter! you feel me?), you’ve gotta work up some strategies to get those thoughts right.Add to Favourites
