Loco Moco

Standard

The Loco Moco is a Hawaiian breakfast dish, enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The traditional dish is thought to have originated on the Big Island in 1949 and consists of a bed of white rice, topped by a hamburger patty, which is then topped with an egg and served with a generous amount of brown gravy.

In this Paleo-friendly version, Cauliflower Mash replaces the white rice and a coconut milk-coconut amino sauce provides a healthy alternative to gravy.

INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/4 pound breakfast sausage (I like the pasture-raised sausage meat from Corner Post Meats)
1 large free range egg
+ Pre-made Cauliflower Mash, re-heated

RECIPE

In a small sauté pan, melt 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil over medium heat.
Place the sausage patty in the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until your desired preparation is reached.
Meanwhile, in another small sauté pan, melt the other 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat and cook the egg, sunny side up.
Once the sausage and egg are ready, scoop a bed of Cauliflower Mash onto a plate, then place the patty on the mash and the egg on top of the patty.
In a small bowl, mix the coconut milk with the coconut aminos to form the “gravy”.
Pour the “gravy” over the egg and serve while warm.

As the Hawaiian’s say, ʻohoiho (enjoy)!

The Breakfast Burger

Standard

The popular saying goes that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” but most Western breakfasts, such as cereals and toast, simply aren’t providing our bodies with the nutrients we need to kickstart our day.

In true Paleo form, I believe that a protein-rich start to the day is important. Providing your body with protein instantly fuels your body naturally for what lies ahead.

For years my boyfriend and I have been a fan of traditional bacon and egg breakfasts, but, after having lived in Hawai’i, we were inspired by the island style Loco Moco and thought that we would get a little more creative.

Following the arrival of our most recent Corner Post Meats order, we began adding grass-fed sausage to our daily breakfast routine and, after a little experimenting, my boyfriend mastered “The Breakfast Burger!” Here is his ultra-Paleo (and perhaps somewhat manly) recipe:

INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 strip bacon
1/4 lb. breakfast sausage
1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, optional
1 large egg

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the bacon on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
Place the breakfast sausage meat and spices in a small bowl and mix together before forming a patty.
In a small sauté pan, melt 1 teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the seasoned sausage patty and cook until your desired preparation is reached.
Meanwhile, in a second small sauté pan, melt the other teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat and add the egg, cooking it sunny side up.
Once all three parts of The Breakfast Burger are cooked, stack them on a serving plate: sausage patty at the bottom, bacon in the middle and the egg on top.

Enjoy the Paleo decadence, guilt-free,

Agave Spiced Sausage

Standard

Our favorite new breakfast treat: Agave Spiced Sausage!

If you’re anything like me, protein for breakfast is a must and as much as I love bacon, sometimes switching it up makes life a little more interesting.

This recipe couldn’t be easier:

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons raw agave nectar
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 pound breakfast sausage
1 tablespoon coconut oil

RECIPE

Place the sausage in a small bowl.
Using your hands, work the agave and Italian Seasoning into the sausage meat.
Once well combined, form the mixture into patties.
Heat the coconut oil in a medium saucepan.
Grill the patties until well done, turning periodically.
Serve hot and enjoy!
