So first of all, I’ve mentioned this site a few times on my blog: fastpaleo.com
People upload paleo recipes they have made and it is basically a recipe sharing site. I love it and use it all the time. I also post some of my recipes on to it. Well, they put together a book of 100 of the recipes from 2012. AND GUESS WHAT? 2 OF MY RECIPES MADE IT! NOT ONE BUT TWOOOOO! yay:) So you all should go buy it and support me:).

Now go do it.
Ahh this recipe is a great brunch recipe if you are having company over. It’s a one dish egg bake that includes everything you need for the meal! Just top with avocado upon serving and you have perfection.
Serves 5 (so you can adjust the egg amount if you want to make a smaller or larger serving)
1/2-1 cup egg whites (depending on how hungry you think people will be or how much protein you want)
5-7 pieces of bacon (I used turkey because I prefer that)
4 big handfuls of spinach (yes, a handful is a measurement!) roughly chopped (take the handful and chop it 3-4 times that’s it)
1 yellow onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 F.
First, heat up a skillet and cook up your bacon. Take your bacon off and add your onion to the skillet (using the fat from the bacon to cook it in- flavor people!). Once the onions start to become translucent and almost soft, add in the spinach to wilt it down.
While all that was cooking, you should have been whisking your eggs and egg whites together.
Chop up your bacon into small pieces, add the bacon and veggies into the eggs and whisk it all together.
Grease a glass loaf pan and pour your mixture in. Surprisingly, the bacon and veggies rose to the top…. I totally expected them all to sink to the bottom. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through (you can tell pretty easily, it will be set. Or poke it with a knife and see if the inside is still uncooked).
Once done, cut into the individual servings and top with some avocado to get your healthy fats in and round out the meal!
