Paleo Bacon Bowls

So, I think we can all pretty much agree that bacon is awesome. So, when I saw these amazing bacon bowls (affiliate link), I knew that they had to be mine. Well, amazingly enough, my husband thought the same thing, and these bad boys ended up wrapped under our Christmas tree this year for ME! Yesssssssssssss.

So, this morning, Chef Husband did some culinary magic in the kitchen. Not only was this magic paleo, but it also looked awesome. So, the crowd appeal factor here is high, people.

Paleo Bacon Bowls

1. Start by putting your bacon bowls in the oven. We made 3 bacon bowls, and used 9 stripes of bacon (3 strips per bowl). The steps to crafting your bacon bowls are relatively easy, but even if you don't have a bacon bowl (affiliate link), you can also follow these instructions to make bacon bowls with an inverted muffin tin on Cave Girl Eats' blog here

2. While the bacon bowls are doing their thang, you can start crafting your bacon bowl filler. This is where you have the opportunity to be creative. I start getting really excited when I think of the low-carb (high-bacon) possibilities... But this is what Chef Husband did - 

3. Start with sautéing chopped onions and chopped jalapenos (if you want a little kick) in a tablespoon of coconut oil (affiliate link). The precise measurements here are up to you, but we like our veggies so we did about 1/3 a cup of each vegetable. 

4. To the pan of vegetables, add 4 eggs with just a splash of coconut milk. Scramble the eggs on low-medium heat as to not overcook the eggs. 

5. As the eggs are finishing up, add a 1/3 cup of chopped tomato and a handful of chopped baby spinach. Chef Husband added this at the end so they didn't get too cooked. 

6. When the bacon bowls finish cooking in the oven (be mindful when you are pulling the bacon out of the oven --- that pooled bacon grease is ruthless), fill each bowl with the scrambled egg mix, and there you have it - the scrumptious and easy Paleo Bacon Bowl. 

(Note: the vegetables/meat you add to this bacon bowl are really up to you. You can add mushrooms, broccoli, onion, garlic, carrot, sweet potato, ham, sausage... the possibilities are truly endless; one reason why the bacon bowls make me SO excited.)
