Who would ever think that Brussel Sprouts would be used for breakfast???? Well I am here to tell you that this recipe from Kevin of Closet Cooking, is a perfect breakfast for someone on the Paleo Diet. I took his recipe and added more vegetables to it and with an egg to top it off!! So go ahead all you “naysayers” and turn your nose up to it but you will miss out on something that yes, is different, but none the less it is delicious! So gather all your ingredients, bake the bacon in the oven and while that is cooking chop up all your ingredients and be ready to go!!!! And don’t throw away that Bacon grease because I use it. If you don’t want to use the Bacon Grease that is fine…olive oil works just as well…(doesn’t taste as good…)
You can put any other vegetables that you may have on hand…it’s your palate to do whatever you want! Thank you again, Kevin of Closet Cooking for your inspiration!!!! And to all you “naysayers”, JUST TRY IT!!
This recipe was all over Facebook and so I thought I would try it…it was great. I have now tried it 3 mores times and have “honed” it…so, after working up an appetite, while fighting the crowds and waiting in line at the opening of Tucson’s Container Store, I came home and had my “photographer & taste tester” , Tonya Schweigert, help me and here are the results!! PLEASE read the recipe, and then read it again. Go gather everything, shred the cheese, have the sauce ready, and get all your fixin’s….AND USE A 10 INCH PAN WITH A CURVED SIDE, NOT A STRAIGHT UP ONE…makes it easier to get it out!!!
2. In small microwave-safe bowl combine preserves, mustard, water, paprika, and nutmeg. Stir and then microwave for 1-2 mins. Take out and pour over pork & onions in skillet. Reduce heat and cooked, covered, for 6-8 mins.
3. Divide pork & onion mixture…(I put on top of mashed Sweet Potatoes with some Asparagus) and serve extra sauce on top!! YUM….YUM…YUM!!!!
A nice COLD beer pairs well, too!!!
