Frittata: Kelly

IMG_4213

To make the frittata first thing is defrost the deer meat (or any ground meat). One of those packs is good for one frittata. Next cut up veggies.. Sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, mushrooms, .. I add like 3 cloves of garlic and 1-2 jalapeños. Sauté all the vegies until the sweet potatoes get soft. Then add the deer meat in with the vegies until the meats browned..

Preheat oven to 350 Grease bottom of 9×13 (or larger) glass dish or casserole dish. Spoon in the vegie/ deer meat mixture evenly on the bottom of the dish. Scramble 12 eggs and pour that on top of the mixture. At this time you can put sliced avacado on top and it bakes up awesome. Now cover the dish tighly with foil and put in the oven for 35 minutes. If the eggs look runny on top after 35 minutes cook it a little longer (5 minutes)

You can sauté any vegies you like for this dish. They all taste really good.. As far as seasoning.. Salt and pepper or whatever you like

Another note- be sure to spoon in the mixture after the meat is brown so there’s not a lot of juice in the mix. If you don’t there will be a lot of juice floating on top when it’s done cooking.

Trail Mix & Pizza: Erica

Before my recipes I thought I would pass along grocery info:

Costco is a great place to buy several paleo things.  Pricewise it is substantially cheaper.  I buy almond butter (no added sugar), organic broccoli (frozen is cheaper), organic cage free eggs, nitrate and nitrite free bacon and hot dogs.
Trader Joes is the best place to get almond flour affordably (because it is pricey$).
For cooking, coconut oil is your new best friend!
Ok now for a couple of my fave recipes!
Paleo Trail Mix: (excellent snacking option)
1 c whole almonds
1/2 c whole cashews
1/2 c raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 c raw sunflower seeds
1/2 c raisins (golden raisins suggested)
1/2 c dried currants
1/2 c dried blueberries
Combine and store in airtight container.  (Try different combos of nuts and dried fruits you like!)

Paleo Pizza: (I have tried several different paleo pizza crusts and this is by far the best!)
1 c almond flour
3 T almond butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 t sea salt
3 t olive oil, divided
your favorite pizza toppings (that are paleo of course!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix almond flour, almond butter, eggs, and sea salt in a small bowl
Cover a baking sheet with 2 t olive oil, then spread the mixture over it, about 1/4″ thick.  Bake for 10 mins.
While it’s baking, prepare your other ingredients.  We like to use a mixture of olive oil and minced garlic along with italian seasoning as our ‘sauce’.  For toppings we use bacon, italian sausage, red onions, tomatoes, spinach… just a few suggestions!  (I do also put a little shredded cheese over the top just to hold everything together, shhh!)
Remove crust from oven and top with other ingredients (if you are using spinach or other green leaves, don’t put them in until there is just about 7 mins remaining).  Bake for 20-30 mins.
