Effortless Savoury Paleo Breakfast Bake with Bacon, Egg, and Mustard Greens: A Tried-and-Tested Favourite! This recipe is a game-changer! So easy to make ahead and delicious every time. My whole family loves it!

"Oh this tastes really good mum, I'm surprised!" - My daughter is my harshest critic!

Simplify Your Mornings with my Savoury Paleo Breakfast Bake

OK, so I know you want to skip the fluff and get straight to the good stuff - the recipe! But, as a busy entrepreneur and owner of Celebrity Cakes, I know the struggle of juggling business responsibilities while ensuring I start the day on the right foot. That's why I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite make-ahead breakfast solutions. This dish not only saves me time but also keeps me going until lunch. It's a real lifesaver!


The Need for Efficiency

Running a business, especially one as demanding as a wedding bakery, means early mornings and long hours. While I love whipping up delectable treats for my clients, I also need to take care of myself and ensure I have the energy to tackle each day with gusto. That's where the Paleo Breakfast Bake comes in.


A Winning Combination

What makes this breakfast bake so special? It's all about the ingredients. Combining savoury bacon, protein-packed eggs, and nutrient-rich mustard greens (though you can totally swap in fresh spinach if you're finding them hard to source or just don't like them).


This dish is a powerhouse of flavour and nutrition with some secret ingredients. Nigella seeds - also known as black cumin. These little wonders not only add a unique flavour but also pack a punch with their antioxidant properties. Of course, if you're not feeling adventurous, feel free to leave them out. I won't judge! Oh, and about the little grating of aromatic nutmeg? It's just something that I've always done with greens, simply just grated a little nutmeg over a knob of butter and tossing it just before serving. It has to be freshly grated, the pre-ground stuff just doesn't taste nice. As a side note, I'm not strictly on a Paleo diet, my family are Gluten-free all of the time and grain free for as much as humanly possible. This recipe is actually Paleo though!


Prep Once, Enjoy All Week

One of the downsides of Paleo I feel, is the extra time it takes to make breakfast each day. The beauty of the Savoury Paleo Breakfast Bake lies in its make-ahead nature. Spend a little time in the kitchen on a Sunday afternoon, and you'll have breakfast sorted for the entire working week ahead. Simply bake a batch, portion it out, and store it in the fridge for easy grab-and-go mornings. I store mine in a lidded box but feel free to wrap individually if you wish.


No More Morning Onion Breath

Now, let's address the elephant in the room: onions. I've made the executive decision to leave them out of this recipe. Why, you ask? Well, let's just say I value my client consultations more than I value onion breath. But hey, if you're a rebel and want to add them in, who am I to stop you?


As entrepreneurs, we juggle countless responsibilities every day. But taking care of ourselves shouldn't be one we neglect. With my Savoury Paleo Breakfast Bake, you can nourish your body without sacrificing time or flavour. Give it a try and start your day on the right foot. Here's to simplifying mornings, cutting out cereal and grains and conquering the day, one delicious bite at a time!


I hope you give it a try, warm regards,

Savoury Paleo Breakfast Bake


Ingredients


  • 2 small packs of bacon Lardons or a few slices of bacon

  • 1 large Bunch Mustard greens (alternative - use fresh spinach)

  • 12 medium Free Range Eggs

  • 1/2 Cup sliced Mushrooms (buy pre-sliced for speed)

  • Freshly Grated Nutmeg

  • Sprinkle of Nigella Seeds (black Cumin)

  • About 10 grinds of Fresh black pepper

  • 1 tsp Thyme

  • Salt (optional depending on saltiness of the Lardons)

  • 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions


  1. Preheat Oven to 365°F/185°C - Line an ovenproof glass dish or brownie tin with parchment paper. To make this easy, I place the container on top of the parchment and cut around it by an extra inch on all sides. Then cut four slits in the paper diagonally from each corner. Pour some water in the tray, remove the water and place the parchment inside. The wetness makes the parchment stick and the slits make the paper fold itself into the square/rectangle shape of the dish/tin. Genius!

  2. In a saucepan add the oil and fry off the lardons or bacon. Once cooked, place them onto kitchen paper to drain.

  3. In the same pan with the bacon fat, fry off the washed mustard greens or spinach until starting to wilt, add the mushrooms and stir for about 1 minute.

  4. Spread the partially cooked veg mixture and Lardons/bacon over the parchment in the overproof container. Grate over some Nutmeg and sprinkle over some Nigella seeds.

  5. In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk with a fork, add the herbs and seasonings if using.

  6. Pour the beaten eggs evenly over the veg and bacon mixture.

  7. Bake until cooked (approx 35 mins) - it should not be liquid or jiggly in the centre.

  8. Once baked Leave to cool before cutting into portions.

  9. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
