Bacon Brussels Apple Hash

One of my favorite flavor combinations: bacon, Brussels sprouts, onion and apple. I could eat varying kinds of hashes all day long.

Bacon Brussels Apple Hash

  • 1 pkg “ends and pieces” bacon (Trader Joes)
  • 1 bag shredded Brussels sprouts (Trader Joes)
  • 1 white onion, loosely chopped
  • 1 apple, diced (mine was soft, not one you’d want to eat by itself)
  • Grassfed garlic butter
  • 2 Pastured eggs
  • Salt/pepp

Start cooking the ends and pieces in a deep sauté pan, continue cooking until bacon is cooked to your liking (I cooked a little longer because I prefer crispier bacon). Add the onion, and sprinkle with salt/pepp, continuing to sauté on med heat. Once the onions start to turn transparent, add the entire bag of shredded sprouts and toss. Once the hash is almost entirely cooked, toss in the apple just to warm, so it doesn’t get mushy and turn to low heat.

In a small sauté pan, melt a cube of grassfed garlic and herb butter, and crack two pastured eggs into the butter (LOOK AT THE COLOR OF THE YOLKS, OMG). Cook to your desired yolk texture. Pair with hash. Mmmm. Leftovers for lunch today!IMG_4025[1]IMG_4028[1]IMG_4027[1]IMG_4033[1]

Cabbage Salad

I’ve been working late, and have had meetings after work-so by the time I get home I throw together whatever random concoction I can from what I have on hand (this is why I try to ensure at the start of every week, I have on-hand, things that I can use or be creative with, that are easy and quick). I got home last night around 7 and was craving a salad so much, but no lettuce. I did have shredded cabbage though, so I thought, well, let’s make a cabbage salad!

Cabbage Salad

  • 1/2 bag shredded cabbage
  • 1 apple
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 red onion
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt/pepp

I poured the cabbage in the bowl, cut 2 avocados (they add the best creaminess to salads, and a healthy fat!), diced 1 apple, and loosely chopped the red onion. Then I drizzled olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt and pepper. It was fabulous! I love cabbage. I also love spicy red onion with sweet red apple.

Lessons learned here: things you wouldn’t normally throw together can actually be really tasty, thrown together 🙂 Yay for random simplicity!Cabbage SaladCabbage Salad 2
