Happy Fourth everyone! I hope you all have something fun and some good eats on your agenda today. I have a great meal planned for Jesse and me this evening … check back tomorrow for a recap and pictures. Here’s a little forecast though: grass-fed tri tip steak, fresh and local veggies and berries, and 24-hour half-and-half yogurt. More specifics to come tomorrow!
Anyway, I had to go to Cultured Caveman this morning to replenish my goodies (also made a new flavor, choco cherry!), but before going, decided to jumpstart my day with an appropriate Fourth of July breakfast … a red, white and blue omelet. First, let me explain that this is not a savory omelet, but a sweeter one rather. I was inspired by Paleo Magazine’s, Strawberry Applesauce Omelet recipe, but added an Independence Day twist to it. I ate mine with two of Applegate Naturals’ chicken apple sausages. See my take on the recipe below.
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp grass-fed ghee
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 3-4 sliced strawberries
- 2-3 Tbsp fresh or frozen blueberries (thaw if using frozen)
- Coconut butter, for drizzling
- Drizzle of raw honey, optional
- Melt ghee in heated skillet. Meanwhile, beat together eggs, cinnamon and vanilla.
- Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook until mostly set, then flip.
- Spread the applesauce, strawberries and blueberries over half the omelet. Drizzle on the honey, if using and coconut butter.
- Fold in half and slide onto a plate.
