I’m currently a few days into a condensed version of Whole 30, but don’t stop reading here, this isn’t a whole 30 recipe. I’m just doing a little post-Halloween, pre-girls trip detox for the next week.
While I was in the middle of Whole 30 and even after I finished, I heard a good bit of chatter about this being something I couldn’t hold onto long term. And that’s pretty much 100% correct. Otherwise, I would call it Whole 365 or Whole Forever. But, I didn’t. Instead, I challenged myself to a 30 day restart. I needed to get back into a healthy eating mode and I needed to change my diet.
I know you should never say never. But, I can’t ever see myself being so restrictive 100% of the time. I don’t even pretend like that’s an option in our life. We go to birthday parties on an almost weekly basis, I love comfort food, and pizza, and baking Funfetti cupcakes with Braylen. For me, there will most likely always be some bit of compromise in my diet.
Case in point? Saturday morning breakfast. It’s just about my favorite meal of the entire week. Allen cooks up a big pancake breakfast or I pull out a batch of homemade cinnamon rolls. It’s rarely healthy and always tasty. And for me, that’s okay. I like to live on the edge on Saturday mornings (and several other times a week, but who’s counting, anyway).
A few weeks ago, I made this tasty little breakfast pizzas using ingredients I had on hand. Every one was instantly a fan, it didn’t take long for them to all be gone!
- 1 can grands biscuits
- 1 package canadian bacon (chopped)
- 6 large eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 3 tablespoons AP flour
- 3 tablespoons butter
- shredded mozzarella cheese
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Roll out the individual biscuits to flatten them, making mini pizza crusts.
- In a sauce pan, melt butter, add flour and whisk until combined. Cook about 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously (don't allow the mixture to brown).
- Remove from heat and whisk in ½ cup of milk, return to eat and let the sauce thicken.
- Scramble the eggs in a separate pan until they are soft-set, don't overcook or they will become dry and rubbery while in the oven.
- Add in sauce and combine.
- Top each flattened biscuit with egg mixture, chopped Canadian bacon, and mozzarella cheese (to your liking).
- Place in the oven and cook 12-15 minutes, wait for the cheese to become bubbly and the edges of the biscuits to brown.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
