Recipe Time! Bacon and Asparagus Fritata

OK, everyone. I’ve been very sciency and stone-faced on this blog so far, but eating just puts me in a better mood. This is the most versatile paleo recipe ever. It’s great for any meal of the day, although I usually prefer it for breakfast right after my CrossFit workout (and a shower).

On the left is half a gala apple, but that’s not what’s exciting. The other part of my breakfast is the fritata. Eggs, asparagus, bacon… nomnomnom

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Grease a baking pan. Any size will work, but 8×8 is about as small as you wanna go.

Sautee the ingredients you want to include. I started with 6 pieces of nitrate free, gluten-free bacon. After the meat was cooked, I added half an onion and 12 asparagus stalks. (This is what’s so great about this recipe! Don’t like asparagus? Use broccoli! Can’t find gluten-free bacon? Use grass-fed ground beef! Or eliminate the meat all together!)

While the meat and veggies cook, thoroughly combine 6-8 eggs (depending on their size) with a teaspoon of arrowroot powder for thickness and a half cup of milk. I was able to find grass-fed organic cow’s milk, but almond milk works just fine.

To the egg mixture, add whatever spices you like. I have a fabulous garlic spice mix that I use. I also add some nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor. Cayenne pepper or cumin are good, too.

Before combining eggs with sauteed meat and veg, let the sautee cool to near room temperature. You don’t want it to start cooking your eggs. Combine thoroughly and pour evenly into baking pan. Bake 20-30 minutes depending on how big of a baking dish you’re using. To tell if it’s done, I open the oven and jiggle it. If the eggs move, I keep baking.

This keeps a little over a week in the fridge. I’ve frozen it before, but it kinda ruins the consistency.

This is also great to take to a brunch. Guarantees you will have something paleo to eat at your next gathering!

Serves 6-8. I haven’t been very specific with the measurements because it honestly doesn’t matter. This recipe turns out different every time I use it, but it’s always delicious.

Ideas for other ingredients: bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, organic sausage, organic nitrate-free ham, chopped steak, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, chia seeds, olives, the list goes on…
