Primal/Paleo Bacon Pancakes Review

Bacon PancakesThis is one of our favorite recipes for breakfast. It is just so blasted good. I mean, who wouldn’t want something called Bacon Pancakes?

Now, I will put a caveat in this that these aren’t necessarily pancakes, more like fritters. But either way they are fantastic. I typically put some sort of creamy substance on top like Paleo Mayo, or you can put something like sour cream instead, and then add just a little bit of sriracha to spice it up. And we use green onions instead of chives.

Mark recommends using a biscuit cutter to form them into a perfect circle, but I don’t think anyone cares if it is a perfect circle when they are shoveling the goodness into their mouth.

What he has on his site is truly enough for 2 if you aren’t too hungry or plan to have something sooner than later in the morning, but it is a lot of food for 1 person to eat. So your best bet may be to make a batch to taste test and see if you and your family like it, then if you do, double it so everyone can eat up, or just have leftovers.

Either way, this is a fantastic breakfast that will be a hit, as long as you like bacon, and really, who doesn’t?

 

Paleo Bacon Carbonara Review

Bacon CarbonaraI got a spiralizer for Father’s Day, so I was antsy to try it out. I had been eyeing this recipe for Paleo Bacon Carbonara for some time and just hadn’t gotten around to using my julienne peeler on anything. But once the spiralizer came, it was a different story.

Now, my picture doesn’t look near as appetizing as the one on the original site, and probably didn’t taste as good either. I had high expectations for this meal and they just didn’t pan out. I added chicken since it was for the whole family and I wanted to make sure that our bellies got full. And i used zucchini instead of squash.

It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either and it all came down to the sauce. The sauce was supposed to be creamy and smooth, but my sauce came out clumpy and not so good. The meal overall wasn’t bad, but it isn’t something we’ll try again any time soon unless we can figure out what went wrong. And the taste left something to be desired as it wasn’t as flavorful as I had hoped, though if we had used heavy cream instead of heavy coconut milk that might have made a difference.

Either way, it came out and we ate it, but it wasn’t as good as we had hoped. Now, let’s see what else I can find to use my spiralizer for…
