Alternative meats at breakfast

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created May 29, 2012 at 1:23 PM

Generally for breakfast, we have eggs and some type of pork breakfast meat (bacon, sausage, ham). What are some breakfast ideas that include other meats, and/or no eggs. Preferably a short prep/cook time, or things that can be made ahead.

Thanks!

I third smoked salmon. Smoked salmon + lightly fried egg = divine breakfast. I'm hardly ever without smoked salmon in my house.

Get out of the whole "breakfast food" mindset. If it is real food, it's fair game. Throw something in the crockpot before you go to bed. I've had pulled pork for my first meal. I've also had salad, leftovers, tinned fish, grilled chicken, etc. This morning, it will be bulletproof coffee.

Grass fed ground beef. I know you said and/or no eggs, but it's really good to fry up a burger and then put an over easy egg on top of it. Then eat it with knife/fork. If you do dairy, top it with sour cream. Also, you can add jalapenos, salsa or hot sauce. Really, really good.

And of course, smoked salmon. I haven't seen any discussion on how paleo it is, but I would think it's pretty safe. You can eat it with some fresh sliced onions and knife/fork. If you do dairy, roll it up around some cream cheese.

I love freshly cooked burgers for breakfast. Fish or cold leftover steak, or whatever else was leftover from dinner. Leftover dinner protein on salad with a big plop of guacamole makes a great breakfast.

As others have said, I eat whatever whenever. Lately, I've been making meatballs. Easy to make ahead and reheat and lots of variations. Spaghetti and meatballs (mashed cauliflower to 'replicate' pasta), BBQ meatballs, Buffalo meatballs, turkey dijon mustard meatballs, etc. I like to sometimes add a fair amount of finely chopped veggies (mushroom, onion, bell pepper are faves) into the balls, add an egg to make everything stick together + bonus protein.

Also been on a taco salad kick. I brown & season a couple of pounds of ground buffalo and then it is really easy to add chopped lettuce, tomato, avocado, and hot sauce. This is also a great low carb option.

Just got over a pot roast and pulled pork kick as well. I will also fry or grill a pound or two of salmon or other fish and eat it for all of my meals for a couple of days. I like to saut?? large amounts of veggies ahead of time too.

Also, other egg options: hard boiled, deviled, baked eggs (if you eat dairy, you use just a bit of cream but could easily sub coconut oil or just tomatoes, etc), lettuce scrambled-egg roll-ups with avocado &/or other veggies.

Some of the paleo muffin recipes will also provide a nice amount of fat and protein. Good luck! Happy cooking! :-)

I seriously eat grass fed ground beef (85 lean) almost every single day, sometimes with a couple of over-easy eggs chopped into it, sometimes with salsa stirred in, sometimes just with salt and pepper.

I was inspired by the post over at thepaleomom.com where she made sausage patties--don't know why I never thought of that. Anyway, I mixed ground fennel and anise seeds, paprika, and salt into a half-and-half mixture of ground beef and ground lamb. It works better when it's not in patties, though--stays more moist when it's in smaller pieces.

you can have various p??t??s/terrines with duck, boar, stag, rabbit, deer, goose and so on. probably easier to find them on the net for US residents.

Thinly sliced steaks can be cooked fresh for breakfast.

I had a chicken breast and pile of kimchi for breakfast. Drizzled a little organic EVOO over the kimchi. Nothing like a big whammy of protein and fiber/probiotics to fuel my morning.

Chicken sausages either cooked in a little coconut oil or zapped in microwave. I usually alternate between this and a 3-egg omelette for breakfast.

I bake bake 1lb of lamb with half lb of fish on a cast iron skillet for 30 mins. That 30 mins is enough for me to get my morning rituals completed. Plus I got my breakfast & lunch done. Winning!
