Lots of people ask what they can make that is Paleo (and Whole30 approved) for breakfast. First of all, the trick is to stop thinking of it as breakfast. It’s time to quit linking types of food to the time of day you eat. It’s really best to just refer to your meals as Meal 1, Meal 2 and Meal 3.
That said, Meal 1 is often a meal that I am trying to get on the table quickly. My girls are starving the moment they wake up, and my husband is trying to get out the door to work, so I’m always looking for something I can make quickly. This meal is just that.
This dish can work with almost any vegetable, and I usually just use what I have on hand. One of the easiest ways to make it is with zucchini and squash.
I chop the vegetables into bite size pieces. That goes quickly with the zucchini and squash because they are so tender. When I can, I like to get them fresh from our garden.
One of the best parts of a Paleo diet is that you get to eat all kinds of yummy animal fats. I cook the zucchini and squash in bacon grease (just make sure the bacon was nitrate- and nitrite-free). Don’t be shy with the grease.
Next, I chop up some garlic. If I have some that’s already roasted, that’s best, because I don’t have to worry about putting it in at just the right time so that it does not burn.
Get the veggies nice and golden brown, then add in the garlic. With a little sea salt and pepper to taste, you’re finished!
I like to serve the veggie hash with organic, farm raised pork patties I made with fresh basil, oregano, and roasted garlic. I just fry those up in the left-over bacon grease.
