This recipe for Paleo Bacon Burgers is from my new pal, Juli Bauer from PaleOMG. Make sure to check out her site as every post is a sassy sitcom (and I mean that in a good way).
Sometimes I don’t want to eat leftovers for breakfast. Shocker, I know.
I live out of Tupperware. It’s like my weird smelling friend that follows me everywhere. But sometimes I lose my friend. And when I lose it, I stress out. How do I lose freakin’ Tupperware? Anyways, when I don’t have to pack breakfast in Tupperware and actually have time to cook a hot breakfast, I get a little wild.
This is what those wonderful mornings look like:
- I make coffee. Duh. Life is stupid without it.
- I chat with Laura about our love lives (or lack thereof), then usually sing a tune to her. She enjoys it.
- I then turn on some sort of music, prance around smiling, add some kind of meat to a pan, and while bacon grease pops everywhere, I prance more while sipping my coffee with coconut milk in it.
- Content Juli at her finest.
- I then eat in front of my computer, updating myself on life via fbook and myspace. Kidding, I don’t have a myspace at this point in my life. I used to LOVE myspace. I’ve moved on though. Or I eat in the bathroom. No, not on the toilet you sicko. I set my food on the sink and try to use one hand to masara my lashes while the other hand feeds my pie hole.
- You’re jealous of my mornings, aren’t you? You should be.
What you need:
- 1 lb grass fed ground beef
- 6-8 slices of bacon, cut in half
- 6 teaspoons duck fat (optional)
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon sage
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
What you do:
- Pull out a medium-large size mixing bowl. Add your ground beef and seasonings to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
- Form the sliders into 6-8 small patties.
- Place your half slices of bacon down in sets of two so they form an X. Place slider in the middle of the X and wrap the bacon around it. It’s greasy enough, it won’t move. If you are using duck fat, plop a teaspoon in the middle of the slider before you wrap it with bacon. I wanted extra fat, OK?
- Heat up a large skillet under medium-high heat. Place sliders in the hot pan and cook for about 4-6 minutes per side, or depending how rare-well done you like them cooked.
- Eat your breakfast sliders over some mixed greens while you sip your coffee with coconut milk, all while on the front porch. Fabulous.
