There’s nothing like a hearty breakfast in the morning! I love the smell of fried eggs and freshly brewed coffee when I get up. Do you know what else I love?
Try this scrumptious high-protein, healthy, Paleo breakfast that’s really easy to cook. It will definitely give you a boost of energy to kick-start your morning.
Paleo Bacon and Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet
- 6 large eggs (preferably organic, pasture-raised)
- 16 oz bacon (cut into 1-inch pieces)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 4 cups sweet potatoes (diced)
- 2 cups zucchini (diced)
- 1 cups onion (diced)
- 1 red bell pepper (diced)
- 1/2 cups kale (chopped)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Before cooking, prepare all the ingredients. Cut the bacon in 1-inch pieces. Mince the garlic. Dice the sweet potatoes, zucchini, onion and red bell pepper into 1/2 inch pieces. Chop the kale.
2. In a large skillet or wok, scramble and cook the eggs over medium heat, until cooked through.
3. Remove eggs from skillet and set it aside.
4. Add the bacon to the skillet and cook until crispy.
5. With a slotted spoon or tongs, remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside, leaving a small amount of bacon grease in the skillet.
*NOTE: I used a spoon to remove the bacon grease from the skillet. I left just enough on the pan for frying the veggies.
6. Increase the heat of your skillet to medium-high.
7. Add garlic to skillet and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
8. Add the diced sweet potatoes, zucchini, onion, and red bell pepper. Stir and cook until veggies are golden brown and cooked through.
9. Stir in kale, bacon pieces and eggs to heat through.
10. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately
11. Enjoy it served with a side of fresh berries.
Use a large bowl or serving dish to make sure the diced veggies don’t go over the edge of the plate. To make it look more appetizing, layer the fluffy scrambled eggs on top of the veggies and the crispy bacon. Then you’re ready to dig in!
If you want to make this recipe Keto-friendly, add grass-fed butter at the end and top with grass-fed, organic cheese to increase the fat macro ratio. You can also add more bacon or even some breakfast sausage.
