I have history with this recipe. It is one of the first Paleo recipes I was introduced to. My good friend, Paul, from Crossfit Worcester, created it. Although the title is “Breakfast of Champions”, it is certainly not limited to breakfast alone…although I love pumping my kids full of this many veggies first thing in the morning! I make this regularly for the kids at lunch when I’m not able to stretch leftovers far enough. It’s great to have on hand. Just make a batch of it and you can eat on it all week! I do have to warn you, though. This stuff stinks when you take it out of the fridge and are cooking it up. I couldn’t even be in the same room with it while I was pregnant. The only advice I can give you about this is, light a candle, because this stuff is tasty and totally worth a little stink in the air! I prefer to eat mine toped with Trader Joe’s Authentic Salsa. My three-year-old likes it with hot sauce, and my five-year-old prefers Paleo ketchup whenever it’s available! Any way you eat it, it’s delish! Enjoy!
Cyr’s Breakfast of Champions
- 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef (bison and venison work great too!)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 pkg of broccoli slaw
- 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
- 2-3 handfuls baby spinach
- eggs or egg whites
- optional ingredients that you may wish to add: sliced mushrooms, chopped jalapenos, minced garlic
- Brown meat, strain and set aside in medium size bowl. Add spices to the meat.
- Melt coconut oil in pan. Add broccoli slaw and onions (also mushrooms if you choose). Sauté until veggies start to get soft. The broccoli slaw will start to brighten up in color.
- When there seems to be about 1 minute left to sauté, add your spinach (as well as jalapenos and garlic if you choose). Cook until spinach is wilted.
- When complete, mix all ingredients together in a large bowl for storage.
- When ready to eat, add 1/2 to 1 cup of mix to a hot pan (you will probably want to add a little coconut oil). Crack an egg* (or 2) over it and scramble until eggs are cooked.
*You can also use egg whites if you prefer
