Breakfast Potatoes with Bacon, Kale, Spinach and Onion

potatobreakThis morning was a quick and easy potato fry. I used fresh ingredients and spices and fried it all up in one pan. Super easy, super fast, and very filling. Total calories were about: 400 per serving, 70 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fat, 15 grams of protein, and 5 grams of sugar. What I really like about this is that my son–who will not eat anything if it is remotely green–will eat this and get the vegetables without realizing they are in there, because I chop them up so finely.

Breakfast Potatoes with Bacon, Kale, Spinach and Onion

Ingredients:

  • one russet potato per person (calories are calculated on three servings)
  • one piece of applewood smoked bacon per person
  • one cup of finely chopped fresh kale
  • one cup of finely chopped baby spinach
  • one white onion
  • one seeded red jalapeno
  • and spices to taste: I used turmeric, black pepper, Himalayan sea salt, paprika, fresh garlic and a dash of cayenne pepper

Chop potato and onion into small chunks, then finely chop the kale and spinach and jalapeno into tiny little dices. This well help keep the kale from overpowering the flavor and let kids eat it without really knowing there are vegetables in the mix. Toss the whole thing into a non-stick frying pan (I use the Orgreenic or a ceramic coated pan–don’t use Teflon. I especially can’t because we have a bird in the house, and Teflon is seriously dangerous/toxic to birds). Fry it up and when the potatoes are soft and browned, serve. I put a dollup of sour cream on mine, but it goes well with salsa or just by itself. If you can afford the calories, some shredded cheddar cheese will be yummy on top of it too.

If you want a vegan option, skip the bacon and add a tablespoon of coconut oil for the frying.

This is a wonderful, filling, and flavorful dish that you can make quickly and with one pan, a cutting board and a knife, boom, done.

Enjoy.

Love and stuff,

Michy

    […] This is the third or fourth day of waking with intense pain so bad I can’t think or even talk well. I had to wake someone up to get me a pain pill at about 5:45am. I couldn’t sleep through it. When it happens in the morning early like that, I try to sleep through it, but I couldn’t. I took a whole pain pill this morning, when I usually take a half of one. I was able about 20 minutes later to go back to sleep, and when I finally did wake around 9:15 or so this morning, I was doing better.  I managed to get up and make breakfast. We’re doing a managed calorie and nutritional diet, but my family doesn’t really know that. I manage it through MyFitnessPal.com. I’ve been enjoying using it. I’ve lost 20 pounds since I started using the website. I love that. The family has loved the food. Everyone who has needed to lose weight has with it. That’s awesome. If you want to see my recipe for breakfast this morning, you can see it on my food and recipes blog here. […]
