Imagine making burgers for breakfast; what do you see? Likely, this image would impress your buddies but certainly not your lady. The beauty of the Paleo Breakfast Burger is that it looks like a proper breakfast item and it tastes amazing. It's also vegetarian and can be made vegan. Check it out...
This Paleo Platter is fun and easy to make and only takes 20 minutes. The following ingredients are listed in order of use and serves two. Photos are provided to help you through the instruction process. Good luck guys!
- 1 Sweet Potato
- 3 Large Eggs
- Coconut Oil
- White Vinegar
- Olive Oil
- Olive Oil
- Lemon Wedge
Peel off all sweet potato skin with a vegetable peeler and discard skin.
Shred the entire sweet potato onto a plate with a cheese grater.
Whisk one large egg in a bowl and pour onto the shredded sweet potato
Throw two pinches of salt and pepper into the mix.
Ready to get your hands dirty? Mix all of these ingredients with your hands until the s and p and egg are throughly mixed together, saturating the shredded sweet potato.
Evenly divide the mixture into four even clumps for a large sweet potato, or, two clumps for a small sweet potato as seen in the photo below.
Excessive liquid from the egg and sweet potato combo will separate from the clumps. This is okay.
Turn a stovetop burner on medium-high and put one tablespoon of coconut oil in a medium-sized pan.
Pick up each clump and work it into the shape of a bugger patty. Again, excessive liquid will release, this time all over your hands, and this is okay.
Place each patty in the frying pan, being careful not to burn yourself.
Flip over the patties after cooking for approximately four to five minutes.
They should have an evenly dispersed medium to dark-brown appearance.
Now you have approximately four to five minutes to prepare the rest of the ingredients while the other side cooks.
Pour four cups of water and a teaspoon of white vinegar in a medium-size sauce pan and place on stovetop. Turn the heat on high.
In a bowl, lightly mix two large handfuls of spinach, one teaspoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and a squeezed wedge of fresh lemon. Evenly place onto serving plates.
This should be fun - poached eggs! Once the water comes to a light boil crack the remaining two eggs into the water. They cook quickly. I prefer my egg yokes to be runny, so two minutes in the water is perfect. Note: don't let the water boil in excess, rather a light, rolling boil. After two minutes, I turn off the heat and pull them out of the water. Leave the eggs in the water for a more gel-like yoke consistency. Pull the eggs out with a slotted spoon.
It's time for the burgers to come alive. Place the patties on top of the spinach and the eggs on top of the patties.
Season your eggs with salt and pepper for taste (I like to keep it simple) and liven your plate's aesthetic and flavor by adding Sriracha and fruit. These spicy and sweet flavors really complement this dish.
Serve and watch what happens to whom ever you serve up this Paleo Breakfast Burger. Bon Appétit.
Oops, I almost forgot about my vegan friends. Substitute apple sauce for the egg in the sweet potato mixture and stir-fried garlic and mushrooms for the poached egg.
Enjoy and let me know how they come out!
