This was the recipe of the week at my local Crossfit box, Crossfit HG3. When the recipe hit my inbox, I knew I had to give it a go. Thank you guys!!!

I have seen similar style recipes on a number of the paleo website, but I have never really got round to making them. Perhaps because I couldn’t get my head round the non-stickiness of the recipe. I envisaged, egg crusted baking tins, a bit of a disaster, and lots of cleaning up!

Amazing Egg Pots!

Amazing Egg Pots!

Oh how I was wrong! These bad boys are absolutely AMAZING! You just have to give them a go! They in my view are a revolutionary food for people that have busy on the go lives. You can have them for breakfast, yes, but, they also make the perfect portable protein snack. Mega tasty, and extremely filling! What is not to like!

So here is how you do it! I have adapted the recipe slightly, but, follow the basic principles, bacon, bottom, egg top, veg in between, and you can use whatever veg, herbs, seeds, spices you fancy!

Simply put it in the oven and hey presto!

Simply put it in the oven and hey presto!

You will need:

  • Eggs
  • Bacon
  • Veg- inc tomatoes.

Method

  1. Simply get a muffin tin, and grease it with olive oil.
  2. Take your organic bacon, fry it, and then take the circle part, and add to the muffin tin. This forms the base for your egg muffin. Finely chop your veg- I have used peppers, broccoli, tomato and spring onion so far, but the possibilities are endless.
  3. Chop the remaining bacon and sprinkle on top of the veg.
  4. Crack an egg on top. No need to whisk it, but, certainly whisking the egg will give it a different taste all together!
  5. Bake in an oven 175 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until the egg is cooked!
  6. Eat warm or cool!

Great tasting food has always been my passion. Obsessed with cookbooks from a young ages I have enjoyed exploring the world of food, recipe by recipe. 2004, aged 20, I was reading Law at University; money was tight, and meals were often made up of vegetables and starchy carbohydrates, washed down with ample alcoholic beverages of choice. Always made from scratch, taste championed calorie content; many delicious creamy pastas and carb-loaded rice and pitta dishes were consumed.Being in my early twenties, I was quite capable of getting away with my not exactly nutritious diet, however following Law School I noticed that I’d put on a few pounds. Being a food lover, I became extremely interested in the power of food; its nutritional value, its healing, health benefits. I read pages and pages of nutritional information; I followed fitness blogs, and read health cookbooks. I then made the decision to turn paleo; I really tightened up my diet and saw amazing result. Most importantly however, eating the right food made me feel great. For the first time, I did not feel bloated, I felt energized, health issues cleared up. My skin was the best ever, I slept well at night. The Paleo Diet involves eating mainly vegetables and protein, with small amounts of fruit, nuts and seeds. Eating Paleo is in essence eating the foods your body was designed to eat. The Paleo Diet mimics the diet that our hunter-gather ancestors ate; pre-agricultural revolution. My love of paleo, has brought me to my new found hobby; CrossFit and a combination of exercise and diet are an unbeatable solution. Paleo Polly is a blog dedicated to my journey. Although I am not a qualified nutritionist, my personal journey has enabled me to make great changes to my life and to my well-being. I would like to share my journey, and my life experiences and guide and assist anyone wanting to make a positive change.
