The Best Breakfast

 

 

Turn Your Body into a Fat Burning Machine...

Without Hours of Planning and Eating the Same Boring Meals Everyday

Do you ever get completely and utterly bored with breakfast? I do. All the time. It’s so easy to just throw some eggs in a skillet and scramble them, that I often get in a breakfast rut due to the rush of getting the kids ready for school every morning. But spicing things up a little and getting past the rut is actually pretty easy.

I’ve posted a quite few breakfast recipes lately, because honestly, I like the change. I may not be a huge fan of scrambled eggs on their own, but with sauteed veggies in them, they are totally delicious. I also sometimes just eat the eggs because it’s all I have time to make in the morning, which is why I love the Country Potatoes recipe. It’s so easy to make in advance and then just reheat, and they’re just as good the next day (or even a week later).

Bacon is also another thing that’s easy to make in advance and just reheat (or even eat cold, if you’re into that). Add some fresh berries, and you’ve got a deliciously easy breakfast that is anything but a pile of boring eggs. Our kids love when they get a “fancy” breakfast like this, makes them feel like we’re out at a restaurant. I love that it really doesn’t take that much more time than plain scrambled eggs if I do a little prep work the day before.

Country Potatoes

Restaurant-style crispy potatoes are so easy to make right at home and you control the fat that they're cooked in.
Course Breakfast
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 20 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes
Author Kendra Benson

Ingredients

  • 4-6 medium Yukon Gold Potatoes peeled
  • 3 Tbsp Cooking Fat of choice bacon fat, ghee, and avocado oil are our favorites
  • Sea Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Wrap peeled potatoes in tin foil and cook using one of the following two methods: (1) slowcook - our preferred method; or (2) bake.
  • If you'll be baking them, preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake for 1.5 hours.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, remove from foil, and refrigerate in a covered container for at least an hour to cool, or as long as one week.
  • Dice the cooled, cooked potatoes in bite-size cubes.
  • In a large skillet, heat cooking fat over medium-high flame. Add potatoes to the skillet and stir to coat with cooking fat. Cook, gently stirring occasionally, until crispy on the outsides, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, salt to taste, and serve right away. Can be made in advance and reheated in the toaster oven or in a warm skillet.

Notes

Prep Time does not include baking the potatoes in advance (time depends on the method you choose).

  1. I thought potatoes were non paleo?

    • They have been Whole 30 approved with the release of the new book. YAY!!!!

  2. I’m new to Paleo so I’m not sure if the Counrty Potatoes Recipe is ok to eat. I thought potatoes were on the don’t eat list.

  3. Can’t wait to try this! I notice this recipe calls for potatoes to be peeled, but sweet potato calls for skins to be left on. Can you tell me the reasoning behind the difference?

  4. When did any potato (other than the white sweet potato) become okay on the paleo diet?

  5. @Corby, in 2014, white potatoes were allowed on the Whole30 (http://whole30.com/2014/07/new-whole30/) and by extension, were generally accepted as an okay paleo food.
