5 Paleo Diet Breakfast Recipe Ideas
This omelet is easy as can be and filling too. You can use whatever fillings you like inside – garlic, onion, greens, bacon, sausage…whatever your heart desires!
Easy Made Omelet
- Eggs – 3 typically works best
- Fillings – whatever you would like
Make sure you have your fillings prepared and ready to go, along with your eggs beaten
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat, add the Paleo oil of your choice
Once pan and oil are heated, pour beaten eggs into the pan
As the edges around the pan begin to harden first, use your spatula to flatten them out. While doing this, also turn the pan to make the runny center part of the eggs move outward to the corners to cook as well.
After a few minutes, most of the egg should be cooked evenly, with perhaps a bit of slightly runny egg left in the middle of the pan
Add your fillings of choice to the center of the omelet
Using your spatula and tilting your pan to help the process, fold one half of the omelet over the other
Use your spatula to remove the folded omelet from the pan and place it onto your plate
Eat and enjoy!
Omelets are great because they are so versatile. Whip up some eggs, throw anything Paleo in there and you're good to go. Check out our list of 101 Paleo foods to get some ideas at http://ultimatepaleoguide.com/101-paleo-diet-foods/
