Lumberjack Skillet

Im a morning individual (by choice, perhaps not nature, but that is a tale for the next time) and morning meal is my personal favorite dinner for the time.

Powerful coffee and a hearty breakfast make me personally feel I’m on holiday, luxuriating in hashed-brown-and-bacon paradise, without a wellness or fat care in the field. Break fast menus at truck stops and diners have actually amazing interest a closeted lumberjack like me, with terms like grand-slam and morning meal skillet promising dinner that may fill myself up for the majority of of this day.

But, consuming like a lumberjack when you yourself have a table task makes no sense, unless you actually are on vacation. For an even more quotidian option, take to my Country-Style Skillet morning meal.

I use just a few strips of genuine pork bacon maintain things feeling authentically diner-ish. Onions, nice yellowish peppers, spinach and garlic all add a huge amount of flavor (and vitamins) but almost no calories.

The real nutrient and calorie-saving workhorse for this meal, though, is: cauliflower.

I swap out the breakfast-skillet basic hashed browns for riced cauliflower. It works beautifully, and not only do you save the calories of the potatoes, but all the extra fat you need to make those hashed browns crispy and tasty.

You can find riced cauliflower in most community grocery stores these days, either in the packed generate aisle or perhaps the fridge. Or, merely pulse up a number of cauliflower florets in a food processor until it’s cut into rice-sized pieces. The cauliflower is merely bland enough it will require regarding the tastes regarding the remaining ingredients and enough heft to house eggs broken straight into the skillet. The effect is rustic, gorgeous and completing.
