BLT Breakfast

Crisp bacon combines with the bright flavor of spinach and tomatoes in this unique Paleo breakfast recipe. The addition of eggs, avocado and almonds tops up the protein and healthy fat content of this healthy BLT breakfast. You can replace the bacon with salami if you like (or to save some time). If you’re tight on time in the morning, you can also cook the bacon, reserve the drippings, and chop the vegetables the night before.

  1. Had this for breakfast and it was awesome! I am so glad I signed up for this plan. The only change I made was to drain off some of the bacon drippings before adding the tomatoes and spinach, otherwise it would have just been soggy. Otherwise I made it as written and was not disappointed.

  2. Made this exactly as directed. My avocado wasn’t ripe enough so it was too hard and not enjoyable. Overall it was a great combination and I wouldn’t change anything about it. I added sea salt and ground pepper.

  3. How can I get a Paleo Book for receipes and learn how to do this using an actual hardcover or paperback book with photos in them? I ordered a book set of 4 just now and then once they took my money, I said to activate the E-Books.. No way! Now I have to try and get my money back..

    Do you have a set of books on how to learn the Paleo way of eathing healthy? Can I order it online? Is it a REAL BOOK I can take to the kitchen like a real cookbook is?

    Thanks for your help.

  4. I made this this morning and it was FANTASTIC! I found myself satisfied at breakfast which has always been difficult for me! Im really lazy in the morning so I cooked the bacon the night before and put it in the refrigerator and measured out all my ingredients! It was so easy to put together in the morning it only took me 10 minutes which was a GOD send!

    Thank you Neely Q.

  5. I saw the breakfast meals and almost all of them contain bacon and eggs, and I don’t eat both of those!
    What are my choices !

    1. Alhareth A – Any of the other breakfast recipes that don’t contain eggs or bacon are fine. And any of the lunch or dinner options are great, too.

  6. Didn’t fancy an egg, so pan fried 2 rashers of bacon until the fat was crispy, removed from pan, added 2 cups shredded kale, clove of garlic and cherry tomatoes. Sliced avocado over top and omitted almonds. Delish!

  7. Just tried this recipe this morning. I tweaked it a little, had poached eggs rather than fried. It was delicious. Will definitely be using this as a regular Sunday breakfast. This plus an orange/carrot/ginger and lime juice meant we all had our 5 a day before 10am!!

  8. Made this for breakfast and all day my husband talked how really good it was – he even bragged to a client.

  9. I just made this recipe this morning and it was great with a few small additions. I added salt and pepper to my eggs and squeezed fresh lime juice over everything when I was ready to serve. My three year old son liked it as well, though he can’t have eggs. I just increased his portion of avocado and almonds.

  10. I made this for breakfast. OMG this was so amazing. Im not a big spinach fan so i was a bit iffy about this dish but man oh man this was super tasty and satisfying.

  11. I just tried this for a late dinner and it was REALLY good. The eggs came out perfect. I halved it since I was the only one eating it. I think next time I make it, I’ll get rid of the bacon drippings as they made the dish too oily. I’d rather use ghee (clarified butter) or coconut oil. Other than that, it was full of healthy fats and protein. I didn’t use any almonds as I didn’t have any on hand that are Paleo-friendly (my mom only has almonds roasted in PUFA oil).

  12. Hello! I made your wonderful BLT this morning without the almond slivers and avocados. I didn’t have almond slivers and my avocados were not quite ready to cut open, so I just left them out. It did not effect the outcome! It was still delicious! My husband and I just recently started eating Paleo, so I have been looking for simple and scrumptious paleo recipes. I will be looking forward to more recipes from your site! Thanks!

  13. Late to the club, but even my picky toddler and junk-food eating husband raved about this. I think it’s going to become a weekly staple!
