Paleo Breakfast

The Dexter Breakfast: Fried pork, eggs, a blood orange.

That always makes me so hungry when I watch Dexter! I keep meaning to eat that meal, but given my weekday morning timeframe I think it's going to be just for weekends.

What I tend to do for weekdays is make a big batch of fruit salad up in advance (I'm currently eating a mix of melon, pineapple and strawberries), chuck a bit a of lemon juice on it to attempt to keep it all fresh, then serve up with cottage cheese, or if you're non dairy, coconut milk.

I have a question about the "egg muffins".

1. do i put some type of oil in the pan before putting in the bacon and if so what kind is best?

2. after i make say...a dozen or half dozen of these things, how do i keep them? fridge or freezer?

3. best way to reheat them after taking them out of fridge or freezer? just microwave?

4. how long would they last in fridge or freezer? if you were to guess.

Thanks in advance team.

1) You may want to pre-grease the pan a bit, as the eggs will stick like a mofo, even to a non-stick pan. Supplement with some omega3 and use a little coconut oil!

2) if you foresee yourself consuming them all within a work-week, you'd probably be ok to leave them in the fridge. Any longer and you'll want to freeze some. I usually eat 2 per meal so it doesn't take long to burn through a batch.

3) I re-heat with the microwave directly from frozen. Microwaves don't do eggs any justice, but when you're at work with no other options, you take what you can get. The end result is NOT THAT BAD.

4) Fridge - I'd say a week MAX, although I've never had any sitting around longer than a few days to test that theory.

Freezer - eh.. the longest i've had a batch in the freezer is a month and they still tasted good at that point!

Enjoy. They're a delicious, quick, meal on the go - and with so many flavouring options they never really get old.

I'm always looking for more ideas for breakfast and these are great! I am going to print them out and make a few this weekend. I have a fridge in my office at work, so I usually bring all my lunches for the week on Monday, but I am stuck as far as breakfast goes.

This was this morning's breakfast.

I love grilling on brisk mornings. I had seconds. Now I'm full . . . really full.

That is my kind of breakfast. When I broke away from the idea of what breakfast had to be, the possibilities opened up. I still do eggs because they are a powerhouse, but it is not uncommon to see some chicken or beef and veggies at breakfast as well. My breakfast has begun to look more like other meals, but I say why not. No need to stick with traditional breakfast foods.

Omg, so many amazing ideas! I'm doing the paleo challenge in January, so I'm gonna need as many ideas as possible. And I'll have to get used to the idea of eating a salad for breakfast. I'll also have to cook up some of Dexter's breakfast as well, cuz YUM.

Every day my husband makes a big batch of scrambled eggs and sausage for himself and the kids, and there are always leftovers. Being a considerate husband, he puts them in a ziploc and keeps them in the fridge for me to have for MY breakfast (which occurs a couple of hours earlier, before anyone wakes up). However, as mentioned above, microwaving eggs makes them pretty freaking nasty. I can't really stomach them. Sometimes I manage to shove them down, but usually I just get a few bites then I have to bail and have something else.

Is there a better way? Can I put them in a frying pan with some butter or coconut oil and reheat them that way with better results?

For the egg muffins, how long do you microwave them from frozen?
