Breakfast

In relation to Meal Ideas, click here for more of my recent eats and view my Pinterest board.

KSW Breakfast Muffins

  • Prosciutto (make sure you look at the ingredients, sugar is NOT needed)
  • Framer’s market eggs, or I like Trader Joe’s free range
  • Spices – either fresh cilantro or basil

Method: Heat oven to 375F, using a cupcake baking pan, line the cups with prosciutto, crack open an egg in each cup and add spices. Cook for about 20-25 minutes, pull out of the oven, allow it to cool, and store for the week.

KSW Pancakes

  • 3 free range eggs
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tsp of maca powder
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

Mash the above ingredients together until you get a rather smooth, batter-like mixture. This batch should make 2 pancakes. If you are not using a ceramic skillet, use coconut oil or grassfed (Kerrygold) butter to grease your pan. Once the pancakes are cooked enjoy them plain or add a spoonful of nut butter, Kerrygold butter, raw honey or coconut mana.

Prosciutto Veggie Frittata

  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • minced garlic, or 1 garlic clove
  • 1 package (4 ounce) prosciutto
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 15 asparagus spears, chopped in 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup grated sweet potato
  • fresh basil, chopped, 1 handful
  • 6-8 eggs
  • 1 small carton of egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • salt/pepper

Method: Preheat oven to 375F. In a large skillet, saute the onions in coconut oil over medium heat until the onions are translucent.  Add the meat, asparagus, green pepper, grated sweet potato and garlic.  Cook until the the sweet potato is soft. Add the chopped basil and season with a little sea salt and cracked black pepper.

Transfer the mixture to a 8×6 glass (square) baking dish and spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan.  In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, baking soda and egg whites. Grease the baking dish with coconut oil and pour all ingredients in the dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the eggs are set in the middle when you jiggle the pan.

Sweet Potato & Asparagus Eggbake

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sun Dried Tomato, Mushroom, Spinach Basil Eggbake

  • 12 organic eggs (pasture-raised preferred)
  • 2 small cartons of cage free egg whites (I do this to optimize the macro-nutrient ratio of the meal)
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced mushroom
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (gluten free)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 bushel of fresh basil
  • 1 package of sundried tomatoes
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • coconut oil

Grease a Pyrex 9×13 (size of cake pan) with coconut oil. I do this by using a sandwich bag as a “glove” and scooping the oil out of the jar.

Preheat oven at 375F.

Layer the sliced mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and basil in the pan. In a bowl whisk the eggs, egg whites, baking soda, salt and pepper and vegetable stock. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until there is no liquid in the center. I usually test the “doneness” by poking a toothpick in the middle.

*If you want the quiche to be more moist, I recommend adding 1/4-1/2 cup of organic heavy cream and/or some shredded cheese.

Blueberry Muffins

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Grease a regular size muffin tin or line with paper liners. (You can also use silicone cupcake liners for better “non-stick” results)
  3. Mix (or sift) the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
  4. Whisk the “eggs”, honey, oil and vanilla in another bowl.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  6. Gently stir the blueberries into the batter.
  7. Spoon into 12-14 muffin tins. (They will be fairly full)
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until slightly golden on top.
  9. Serve warm

  5. Pour the batter into a well-greased loaf pan and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let the pumpkin banana bread cool down for about 10 minutes before serving.

Additional Smoothie Tips: If you want the smoothie to be sweeter, feel free to add more banana or vanilla extract. As well, with the flu season upon us, I more often than not, tear open 2 green tea sachets and add the ingredients in with the smoothie for an extra immune system booster. Last but not least – I often combine many of the ingredients the night before so breakfast can be whipped together effortlessly. Need more smoothie ideas? Click here.
