It's been a busy 2016 on the farm, and 2017 is shaping up to even busier! Last year, I started my crusade to get myself back in shape, so I joined one of our local CrossFit gyms and won the first bootcamp that I joined! It got me motivated and now as we are into 2017, I continue my Crossfit work outs, and continue to try eating clean, coming up with and scouting out "clean eating"recipes so I won't feel deprived. Even though we are pretty healthy eaters, I never met a potato I didn't like, or corn,bread etc...carbs were my weakness. Here is a recipe I came up with yesterday for clean eating, mini-omlette's using our farm raised, all natural ground pork. I usually have our butcher shop process our ground pork in two flavors, in this case I used the country breakfast sausage. The recipe I came up with: 7 whole eggs About 1/3 cup just egg whites (I used store bought)...I didn't measure, just eye balled it. Chopped red onion Chopped red pepper Small handful of cheddar cheese (about 1/2 cup) A couple handfuls of sliced mushrooms (I chopped up) About three handfuls of fresh washed spinach (dry off well after rinsing) I chopped it up. Coconut milk (about 1/4-1/3 cup) About 1 tsp marjoram
I fried up the ground sausage and when it was mostly brown, I added the onion,red pepper,mushrooms. Once it was all cooked and cooled, I added it to the whipped eggs, egg whites and coconut mixture. I added in the fresh chopped spinach. I added in some pepper, and marjoram, and gave it a good mix, to combine it all. I had the oven heated to 350. I sprayed a muffin tin with Canola Oil Spray. I used a 1/2 cup dry measuring cup to evenly distribute the mixture to all 12 muffin tins. I baked them for about 15-20 min. When I took them out of the oven, I let them sit for just a few minutes, ran a knife around the edge and they slipped right out! Perfect! I ate one with some orange and a slice of Dave's Killer bread! I will definitely be adding this to my list of breakfast recipes. I froze the remaining 11 "omlette's", for farmer Jay and I to heat up this week, as we are still in lambing season and breakfast can be hard to fit in! As you can see, you can throw anything in the omlette's, so many possibilities. The egg whites really made them puff up and they were very satisfying and filling. So what if you have egg on your face! Enjoy!
