Paleo Breakfast with Waffles and Pork!
I don’t mess around on Saturday morning. That’s the perfect time to set yourself up for easy sailing during the busy week. Don’t get me wrong, I love to sit and read the paper, catch up on social media, and chat up the family. But I do all that AFTER I’ve hit the farmer’s market to stock up on local free range meat and organically grown veggies, AND cooked up a double (and sometimes triple) batch of Freezer Waffles from Against All Grain’s Meals Made Simple cookbook.
I LOVE these waffles, and any of Danielle Walker’s paleo waffles freeze beautifully. My other favorites are her Macadamia Waffles and Grain-Free Waffles (made with cashews). Though I personally skip the Fruit Syrup – just seems like too much trouble when I can easily smear some Organic Apple Butter spread on it, like the one from Eden, and be done with it.
So I whip up a bunch of paleo waffles to sustain us through the week and to eat fresh from the waffle maker. Then I cook 2-3 pounds of ground pork and make the Pork Sausage with Greens my kids have come to adore.
Throw the paleo waffle on plates with a pile of the ground pork sausage, add your accompaniments (try to avoid syrup if you can to avoid a sugar rush and subsequent crash shortly later), and get on with your bad self!
Accompaniment ideas for this, and most paleo breakfast recipes:
- Berries for their antioxidants
- Sauerkraut for its fermented “good bugs” (Yes, I’m serious. Try it.)
- Apple Butter (be sure to get the kind without added sugar. That’s why I am so smitten by Eden’s.)
- Nut or seed butter spread on top
