The breakfast of champions!

My cousin said to me the other day when I shared how much we "cheat" on Paleo: "100% Paleo, 80% of the time" and this does describe how we are at the moment. I do love fresh homemade bread, delicious pasta dripping in traditional sauces, sticky puddings...but these are eaten only intermittently now.

My Superman's breakfast of choice ever since he was knee high to a grasshopper is a piece of white toast smeared with marmite. Topped with two slices of tomato, a doorstep slice of cheese, a slice of ham (bacon will do) and two fried eggs. This makes him a happy man. I treat him with this every now and again, but have had to find other ways to serve eggs at breakfast time with a low carb diet that he must follow.

This one is my favourite:

Our bacon is free range, our eggs organic either from our own birds or from Funky Chickens and the kale (or spinach) from the garden. The onions were bought from bees in boots.

Get your bacon frying and remove once done. Keep warm and retain the bacon fat in the pan.

Add one chopped onion, 4 peeled chopped garlic cloves and some chilli flakes. Fry until soft.

Add your washed chopped kale to the onion and fry until slightly softened and darker in colour. Make four holes and crack an egg into each. Place a lid on the pan for 2 minutes for soft eggs and 3 for hard.

Warm the bacon again and serve with a scoop of eggs and spinach. Enjoy!

Hmmm...this looks delicious - certainly to add to the 'to try' list...

Looks great - I just started growing kale - it is very hardy and productive. I'm in NSW Australia and glad to have a frost resistant crop. Eggs and bacon are part of my imagine ideal breakfast.

Thanks for your blog - I really like to see a different perspective.
