Sorry for the sad post, but here is a yummy breakfast that will make your day happier! I realize my last few posts were breakfast - so I will work on some lunch/dinner ideas next!
Butternut Porridge and Maple Sausage Meatballs
- 1 Butternut squash cut in half and de-seeded
- 1/2 Can of coconut milk
- Some melted coconut oil
- Turn the oven on 350
- In a glass dish, lay the halved butternut squash face up, coat the squash generously with the coconut oil. Bake until soft - this will take around 45 minutes
- Once its done - remove and scoop into a mixing bowl. Be careful, it will be HOT!
- After thats scooped in add a half a can or so of the coconut milk. I scooped the solidified stuff in and used a little of the water. Use a hand mixer or blender to mix well!
- Add as much cinnamon as you like and enjoy!
Maple Sausage Meatballs (this is from PaleoOMG)
- 1lb breakfast sausage (no sugar added)
- 1 sweet potato
- 4oz button mushrooms (I used half a container of sliced button mushrooms)
- ½ yellow onion, peeled
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 5-6 slices of bacon
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Place your bacon slices in a pan over medium heat. Cook on both sides until crispy, place on a paper towel to soak up the excess fat and cool, then dice up into small pieces that would fit well in meatballs.
- Place your sweet potato in a food processor with the shredding attachment. Shred your sweet potato, remove contents, then shred it once more. You want it pretty fine.
- Then shred your onion and mushrooms in the same container with the sweet potato that was shredded twice.
- Add your sweet potato, mushrooms, and yellow onion to a bowl along with your breakfast sausage, maple syrup, garlic clove, diced bacon, and salt and pepper and mix well. Your hands are your best tools.
- Place parchment paper on a baking sheet then start making your meatballs.
- What is helpful is using an ice cream scoop so they are all the same size. Roll the scooped out balls in your hands and place on a baking sheet. Repeat until all your ingredients are gone.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes until meatballs are golden brown and completely cooked through. Be sure to check one before you turn the oven off!
