Updated Breakfast Bites recipe: A low-carb high-fat breakfast on the run

with one comment

I’ve updated the Breakfast Bite recipe in this post, adding 1.5 Tbsp ground turmeric. Turmeric is a superb antioxidant, and years ago I read in Science News research on how it protects against cancer and other diseases. The recommended amount was 1/2 tsp per day (or more), so for years I’ve been eating that much. I included it in my hot cereal for breakfast and in the breakfast muffins I used to make for The Wife.

Since switching to a low-carb high-fat diet, I’ve not been getting it regularly, but lately I’ve been eating for breakfast a boiled egg, chopped up with a little yogurt and adding some pepper sauce and 1/2 tsp turmeric. The Wife, however, regularly eats a breakfast bite.

The Breakfast Bite recipe makes 9 squares, each square a breakfast. (I eat a couple of them each week, making a new batch every Saturday.) So 1/2 tsp x 9 squares = 4.5 tsp = 1.5 Tbsp. So I’ve added 1.5 Tbsp of turmeric to the recipe, and used that for the current batch. I added the turmeric when I started sautéing the onion, before adding the chopped red chard (the greens I used today) and the sausage, and the turmeric tended to stick. I loosened it by adding a little sherry to deglaze the pan as I cooked. I modified the recipe at the link to add the turmeric right at the end of the sautéing to avoid the sticking problem.
