Paleo Plan

BLT Breakfast

BLT Breakfast

Makes breakfast for two.

Approximate cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 bacon slices, diced
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (or use 1 medium tomato, chopped)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 Tbs slivered almonds

Instructions

  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until fully cooked (about 15 minutes). Remove 1 Tbs of bacon drippings and set aside.
  2. Add baby spinach and tomatoes to the bacon and remaining drippings, and toss until spinach is wilted and tomatoes are warmed (a few minutes). Remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add reserved bacon drippings when pan is hot. Fry eggs in bacon drippings.
  4. To serve, place the eggs on top of the bacon, spinach and tomatoes, and top with avocado and slivered almonds.

    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.

    You know it’s a winner when your husband says “this would be good when we have company” (!!)

    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.

      Mary Wiseley – We don’t have a book like that, but there are about 100 of them on amazon.com.

  5. 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.

  6. I do not eat pork. Is it okay to substitute turkey bacon in this recipe?

    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 !

    • Neely Quinn

      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.

  8. Are very thinly sliced salami to eat for breakfast with to without eggs allowed on Paleo? Instead of bacon sometimes?

  9. Is it okay to leave out the avacado and almonds?

    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!

    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!!
