Easy and Tasty Whole30 Breakfast Recipes

whole30 breakfast recipes

We recently completed our first Whole30. The hardest menu items for me to come up with were for breakfast. Can scrambled eggs work for all the Whole30 breakfast recipes? I think my kids would protest. I’ve never been a huge breakfast person, but I found myself waking up starving every morning so not eating wasn’t an option. I needed food!

    Great breakfast ideas. The sweet potato breakfast casserole sounds delicious. I have been hearing a lot about whole 30 is this part of the paleo diet? Thank you for linking up with us at the Click and Chat Link Up Party! Kim @ This Ole Mom

      Thanks, Kim! It was sooo good. Whole30 is a 30 day program that is Paleoish, but actually more strict. You are getting rid of everything that might negatively impact our bodies and letting our bodies “heal” and break emotional ties to food etc. After 30 days you add them back in paying attention to how you feel. They also have a book to read. The website is Whole30.com – you should check it out. It was a good 30 days – I’m glad we did it.

    I have become absolutely addicted to a Brussels sprout hash I make with the sprouts, of course, some bacon pieces, onions, and mushrooms, then I fry a couple of eggs and plop them on the hash and it’s oh, so good! I make a big skillet of it and it keeps well, then just heat up what I want for breakfast and top with the eggs.

      Mmmm. That sounds amazing! How do you cut the brussel sprouts for it? I’m thinking something with bacon would be a great way to get my husband to like them. And I love that you like eating the leftovers – my kind-of of meal.

        I actually just tweaked a recipe I found online. I cook the bacon first and set it aside, then cook the mushrooms and onions in the bacon grease. I cut the sprouts in half and put them in the pan with everything else for a few minutes, but I found they don’t really get done that way, so then I scrape it all onto a baking sheet and cook it in the oven at 400 for about 15-20 minutes. As I mentioned, it keeps quite well, so I put it in the fridge and heat up want I want and put fried eggs on top. Love it!

          Mmmm. Thanks for sharing! I’ll be buying Brussel sprouts soon. 🙂 We saw them at the store today and my daughter asked if they were “little cabbages” 🙂 I think that means I need to get them soon.

            Slicing the Brussel spruts makes them really cook fast and they are so good with the bacon. I might actually put them in the butternut squash quiche instead of spinish sometimes. Great recipes. Not doing the challange but no dairy for me and I try to reduce my wheat intake. Being allergic to dairy is not easy sometimes.

            Yum!!! I still have yet to try Brussel Sprouts. I need to add them to my list. I like quick cooking, so I’ll probably try slicing them thin and my husband would say anything is better with bacon. 🙂 No dairy and limited wheat is tough! I hope your collection of recipes you love grows and you have a good selection to choose from.

      Thanks for commenting, Karissa! Agreed, it’s not my favorite meal of the day either and I don’t want to get up earlier to cook. The eggs and hashbrowns and sweet potato breakfast casserole have become my new go tos!

      Thanks for your comment and for hosting, Naomi! My all time favorite recipes are the breakfast casserole and sweet potato casseroles. Then moving off the Whole30 approved list, granola with yogurt and smoothies are up there too. 🙂

    Where did you find Whole30 compliant bacon? I haven’t been able to find any bacon without added sugar. I’ve looked everywhere. Thanks!
