During the week we have breakfast on the go, it’s pretty much the same things every day in some rotation.
Common weekday breakfasts include a grab and go combination of 2 or 3 of following staple items:
Nitrate Free pre-cooked breakfast sausages
hard boiled eggs
and ocassionally a gluten free flax seed “cereal” in almond milk topped with berries
So on the weekend, I like to actually make a real sit down breakfast. Typically, though, breakfast is pretty easy and consists of what was fresh at the farmers market or what I need to get rid of before it goes bad by way of produce.
Today’s scramble was exactly the same! I had half a package of bacon that was useless on it’s own (6 pieces of bacon for a family of 5 is just a tease!) left over from the stuffed squash I made Friday. I had a lb of pork sausage without casing that I had defrosted but had no plan for. I also had a half bag of spinach left from my smoothie yesterday. What to do, what to do?
Well, I scrounged through the fridge and found a red bell pepper and jalapeno that needed to be used, and 2 spring onions I bought last week at the farmers market that were left and beginning to wilt and viola… it’s starting to look like breakfast!
1 lb pork sausage, nitrate free
5-6 strips of bacon, uncooked, cut into bite sized pieces
1 red bell pepper diced
2 spring onions (leeks, shallots, a small onion would also suffice)
2 1/2 cups of spinach
3 cloves of garlic
In a large saute pan, I browned the sausage and bacon pieces together. When they were mostly cooked through I added the 3 cloves of garlic (pressed, diced or sliced – your call).
once it was all incorporated, I added the veggies. I like to also add fresh jalapenos but that is dependent on your taste! When cooked through, remove from heat.
In a clean pan, I scrambled 10 eggs in a little coconut oil, once they were no longer watery, I added them to the meat and veggie mix, incorporated the eggs and plated.
I garnish the scramble with some sliced avocado on top and a little hot sauce! YUM!
I served this with a side of fresh fruit. My local farmers market had honeydew melon on sale as well as fresh blueberries, my in laws had picked fresh strawberries yesterday and dropped them off last night. I cut up the assorted fresh local fruit and served that as well.
Easy Peasy Breakfast, I gotta say I was a little surprised but there was absolutely nothing left!!!
