One Pan Breakfast Hash
When I was growing up, we mostly ate cereal for breakfast during the week. It was quick and easy. We would even set the table with bowls and spoons and all the cereal boxes the night before, so all we had to do was get out the milk and start eating. Did any of you do that?
Now that I read the nutrition labels, I have yet to find a cereal that I would eat on a regular basis. It's tough to find one that isn't loaded with sugar unfortunately. I have also learned of the importance of making sure you have some protein with your meals/snacks. Protein will increase your metabolism, it aids in burning calories and it will keep you full longer.
You have probably heard the saying, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So don't skip out on breakfast. Below is a simple breakfast recipe with eggs and bacon for some protein and healthy fat. Make sure you get good quality bacon, as well as pasture raised eggs, so you can stay away from hormones and antibiotics, and who knows what else. It also includes brussels sprouts which have so many nutrients. This breakfast will provide you with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Potassium, Iron, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium. Boom! Enough said.
One Pan Breakfast Hash
4 cups Brussels Sprouts (halved)
1/2 cup Red Onion (chopped)
1 tsp Avocado Oil
Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
5 slices Organic Bacon (chopped)
Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the brussels sprouts and onion to the baking sheet. Drizzle with avocado oil, sea salt, and pepper. Add the chopped bacon on top and place in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir and bake for 10 minutes more.
Remove the sheet from the oven and use a spoon to push ingredients aside to make divots for the eggs. Carefully crack the eggs into the divots. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Divide between plates and enjoy!
More Vegetables - Use additional vegetables such as peppers, potatoes or mushrooms.
More Flavor - Use garlic powder, onion powder, chili flakes, or everything bagel seasoning.
Leftovers - Refrigerate leftover vegetables in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat the vegetables and cook additional eggs as needed.
So make the veggies and bacon ahead of time, and only prep some fresh eggs in the morning which is super-quick. You could follow the recipe for the eggs, but you could also scramble the egg, fry them, or even use hardboiled eggs (which you can prepare on the weekend or the night before). Super-simple.
