One Fish, Two Fish, Gimme Some Salmon

Here’s some recipes for you!  First one is a breakfast recipe, and the other is dinner!

Piled High Breakfast Burger

For the burger

  • 1 lb. grass fed ground beef
  • 1/3 cup chopped up bacon
  • 1 TBSP Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and very finely chopped
  • ¼ C fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ TBSP fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 TBSP fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • ½ C sauerkrautTo garnish (for each burger)
  • 1 kale leaf, ripped into pieces
  • 1 slice of bacon split in half
  • 2 TBSP sauerkraut
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 3 slices avocado

Start by cooking a few of slices of bacon and set aside. In a food processor or blender, add SOME of the bacon, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt, pepper; process into a paste. Add that to a medium mixing bowl along with the ground beef, jalapeño pepper, parsley, mint, rosemary and sauerkraut and knead well with your hands until uniformly blended. Form the meat mixture into 3 or 4 beef patties. You can cook it on your stovetop, or a grill.

While the meat is cooking, fry 1 egg for each burger. To assemble the burgers, start with a few pieces of kale at the bottom of a plate, next the burger, followed by the sauerkraut and a few slices of tomatoes and avocado. Finally, add the egg right on top of all that and a piece of bacon!

You should have some leftovers from today’s dinner for lunch.  🙂

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
