Make Your Own Bacon Cups

paleo bacon cups
I had been wanting to make some bacon cups ever since one of my readers sent me a link to a company that sold some form of device for making bacon cups!

It’s a handy cup for filling up with simple salads, and it’s not only “cute” but also delicious!

coconut masala chai tea (paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free)
Our time in India was fantastic (3 Indian cooking classes, a camel ride in the Thar desert, meeting random travelers, seeing the beautiful Lakes of Udaipur, marveling at the amazing colors in Jodhpur, and so much more). It’s definitely gotten me excited about cooking more Indian dishes too.

One of the most common things we had in India was Masala Chai (Tea). We drank it with fresh goat’s milk in the middle of the Thar desert with some villagers, we had it at a random deserted road-side stall, and we made it in every single cooking class we attended.

how to prevent paleo egg muffins from sticking to the pan

My Experiments

I was at one of Nom Nom Paleo’s book signings recently, and an audience member asked what was the best way of preventing egg muffins from sticking to the muffin pan. Diane Rodgers and Melissa Joulwan were also there, and some interesting answers came up.

I had my own thoughts about what would work to prevent sticking, but I went ahead and did some experiments (i.e., I made some egg muffins under various conditions)! And since egg muffins are a fantastic pre-prepared Paleo breakfast/snack, I thought I’d share my findings here so no one has to scrub their muffin pan again.

Below are my 3 best methods for preventing egg muffins from sticking to the muffin pan:

paleo carrot bacon egg muffins recipe

I love this recipe – it’s really easy to make (and to scale up to make a double or triple batch), and it makes the perfect fast and easy breakfast or snack! I recently made 24 of these to take on a road trip to Las Vegas.

paleo bread recipe (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free)

You asked for a Paleo Bread Recipe

I’ve had a lot of requests for a full loaf paleo bread recipe, so here it is! It takes longer than my microwave bread recipe, but it’s worth the wait (most of the extra time is just waiting for it to cook in the oven), and you can make enough to share.

Do you want me to email this recipe to you?

Spring soup with poached egg - paleo, gluten-free, dairy free
This is something I make all the time (for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), so I thought I would share it with everyone even though it’s not spring.

It’s so simple (3 ingredients) and has a really great clean feel – I love it.

Paleo chicken and apple sausages
I’m sure most of you already know and love Juli from PaleOMG - she’s freaking hilarious and has the most outrageously delicious recipes. And she was kind enough to let me share this chicken and apple sausage recipe with her readers.

This really makes a fantastic breakfast that you can make in advance and freeze!

Recipe here.

Paleo Tomato and Egg Scramble

“Your Mum is an Awful Cook!”

Ok, my aunt didn’t literally say those words, but she did give me a very funny look when I told her how much I love my mum’s cooking. My aunt then proceeded to tell me how my mum couldn’t cook anything when she was growing up (she was the youngest of 4 kids) but that she was great at dress making.

Somehow, I think 30 years of cooking three meals a day for my dad daily changed things.

This post is coming a bit late for Mother’s Day, but I have to say that I LOVE MY MUM’s COOKING.

Salted Duck Eggs Recipe

Salted Duck Eggs
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then keep reading, because these are delicious!

What are salted duck eggs?

The photo above shows my own homemade salted duck eggs, but you can actually buy them from some Chinese grocery stores too. It’s duck eggs aged in brine, which makes the yolks turn oily, slightly salty, and amazingly delicious! And it’s really easy to make at home as I’ll explain.

Breakfast Sausage
Elana’s Pantry was actually one of the first Paleo blogs I recall reading. Elana Amsterdam already has several cookbooks under her belt, and she’s coming out with a new one (Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, which you can pre-order from Amazon) on June 18th!

And here’s one of the recipes from that cookbook (another one will be coming later this week):

How to Poach an Egg

Paleo Poached Eggs
I seem to learn all my egg cooking skills from Gordon Ramsey’s TV shows! Although Gordon can make cooking any dish look easy, this one really is remarkably easy, although it requires a tad more work than just dumping an egg into boiling water.

Paleo Kale and Chives Egg Muffins
Kale for breakfast!

I was intrigued by the red kale at Whole Foods last night, so this recipe is made with red kale, but you can totally substitute for another variety of kale (I had no idea there were so many until I checked out wikipedia).

Here’s the red kale:

2-Ingredient Paleo Pancake

Paleo Pancakes
I sadly have yet to discover any Paleo crepes (super thin versions of pancakes), but I have made several different versions of Paleo pancakes now. And this 2-ingredient one has to be the easiest ever!

Paleo Egg and Carrots Breakfast

Paleo Breakfast
This is a variation (East meets West fusion) of the traditional Chinese carrots and eggs stir-fry dish. You probably won’t have come across this at any Chinese restaurants because it’s more of a home-made dish. I’ve modified the dish by using a traditional Western scrambled egg as the topping and adding in zucchinis to the carrots.

It’s a really simple and delicious dish for breakfast or brunch (and it gets more veggies into the diet!).

Paleo Coconut Pancakes

Paleo Coconut Pancakes Recipe
This is really just a classic Paleo breakfast/brunch dish. I’m not sure when I first chanced upon the recipe, but I’ve been making it for quite a while now! It’s a bit more complicated than the 2-ingredient pancake (recipe here), but it’s definitely delicious (esp. with a tad of maple syrup).

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

paleo scrambled eggs
This is a quick write-up of how to make perfectly moist and NOT overcooked scrambled eggs (dairy-free)!

As I have previously posted (see here), I learned how to scrambled eggs correctly from Gordon Ramsey (sadly, not in person, but still…). If you’re used to the overcooked scrambled eggs found at Waffle Houses, diners, and hotel breakfast buffets, then your first experience of “real” scrambled eggs might be a bit shocking – you’ll probably think it’s undercooked, except it’s how all the top chefs at all the nicest restaurants cook it!! In fact, I used to ponder about what their secret was…and now I know.

Greek Yogurt Raspberry Smoothie

Greek Yogurt Raspberry Paleo Smoothie Recipe
I’ve been reading about smoothies, and it seems that the word “smoothie” (meaning a smooth talking person) first appeared in print in the US around the early 1900s. However, the fruity drink didn’t become known as smoothies until around the 1960s.

I wanted my smoothie to be a bit more filling than just some frozen fruity juice, and so I experimented with adding some Greek yogurt as well as almond milk. It was quite delicious and very filling!

Tea Eggs (Cha Dan)

Paleo Tea Eggs (Cha Dan)

And this was the conversation in my living room last night:
ME: So, it’s Election Day on Wednesday, right. Isn’t that…
J: No, it’s on Tuesday.
ME: Are you sure? I read it on…
J: There are some things you have to trust an American on.

So, it’s Tuesday today….Happy Election Day to all those in the US! Now, let’s move on to breakfast involving some other nationalities!

This is simply the yummiest and simplest way of eating eggs for breakfast! Cha Dan (literally translated as “Tea Egg”) is a traditional Chinese recipe involving soy sauce and spices and eggs, but to decrease the amount of soy consumption (coz it’s not too good for you!), here’s a soy-free Cha Dan Recipe. You can of course add coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, but it’ll cost you pretty much a whole bottle for two dozen eggs!
