Recipe: Bacon-Green Chile Meatloaf

As I mentioned in my Lamb and Olive Chili recipe, ground meat will save your life. That goes for anytime, but especially during a Whole30. But sometimes…it sure gets old, doesn’t it? I run through the usual: burgers, taco salad, tomatoey meat sauce, meatballs, even a stir-fry treatment. But I always forget about meatloaf. It’s […]

Recipe: Autumn Pumpkin Breakfast

I know, I know. We need another pumpkin recipe like we need a hole in our heads. But let’s give in to the whims of seasonality, shall we? Besides, lest we give into the temptation of pumpkin spice lattes and other sugar- and grain-filled not-so-goodies, it doesn’t hurt to scratch that itch occasionally. And here’s […]

Recipe: Moroccan Breakfast Mash

Oh yeah, kiddos. Buckle up, this one’s good. The basic recipe here is simple: steam some sweet potato and plantain together, then mash it up. Each time I’ve made it, it’s been different. Maybe I toss in some almond butter, maybe I don’t. Maybe I spoon in some pastured butter or coconut butter or some […]

Recipe: Spiced Espresso-Rubbed Breakfast Steak

Espresso-rubbed steak appears to be a popular restaurant feature. But here’s the deal: Every time I see it on a menu, it’s about 7pm and I’ll be damned if I’m about to embark on an all-night bender at my advanced age. If only I’d known about the sublime relationship between coffee and beef back in […]

Eggs are great. Eggs are awesome. One of nature’s best fast foods, no doubt. But my gawd, they get old after a while, don’t they? It was time to shake things up. Inspired somewhat by the flavors in pork fried rice, which features big bites of scrambled egg, this frittata was born. Savory bacon, bitter […]

Recipe: Big. Ass. Pancake.

This is similar in spirit to my Pumpkin Frittata, but just a smidgeon different. I’ve made this a few times now, and I’m guessing it’s pretty adaptable to whatever you have around the house. The pancake batter is the same, but the additions are up to you. So far, I’ve made a sweet potato one […]

Recipe: Pumpkin Frittata

I think. I think this is a frittata. Something like that, anyway. I dreamed this up and hoped it would work, because I needed something to break up the breakfast boredom. If you’re in the mood for something sweet-ish without actually being sweet, this is a good one. As is, it’s Whole30 compliant, but if […]

Recipe: Quick & Dirty! Bacon Green Chile Frittata

In case you haven’t noticed, bacon and green chile go very well together. Also, green chile and eggs. Also, bacon, green chile, and eggs. When I lived in New Mexico, the combo was the ultimate hangover soother. And whaddya know? It’s still great, even though I rarely have hangovers. Add whatever you’d like to this. […]
