This recipe for Paleo Bacon and Egg Fried Rice is the second recipe I’ve made that features the beloved Cauli Fried Rice. The first, Shiitake Salmon Fried Rice, has become a favorite in my house!
Egg yolks were one of my first AIP reintros, and I am so happy I’ve been able to tolerate them. Sometimes I actually crave them, which tells me I need something they offer. And certainly, getting Vitamins A, D, K, B12 and omegas is a good thing! There’s actually lots to celebrate about egg yolks, if you can tolerate them.
But my main goal for this recipe was to spice up (minus the actual spices : ) cauli fried rice. To make it a main part of a dish instead of a side. And I love the classic combination of bacon and egg.
One of the beautiful things about following the AIP diet is that breakfast can be whatever you want it to be! There are no limitations. But sometimes, I still miss that classic “egg and bacon” breakfast, but I still want low carb. This totally fits the bill.
Enjoy this friends! Don’t forget to #letscreatethesweetlife if you try the recipe!
What You’ll Need for this Recipe:
- Cast iron skillet. I can’t imagine life without them! I find the 12″ one best for making cauli rice, as you have more room!
- Fat, such as avocado or coconut or tallow, for cooking
- Sea salt (Sea salt is my go-to)
Paleo Bacon and Egg Fried Rice
- 4 slices bacon
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 medium cauliflower
- sea salt, to taste
- 3-4 egg yolks
- Scallions, for topping (optional)
- extra fat for cooking egg yolks, if needed (I used coconut)
Heat pan over medium heat. Once pan is hot, add bacon.
While bacon is cooking, break cauliflower into florets and rice using a food processor. Chop onion.
When bacon is cooked to your liking, remove from pan. Add chopped onion to pan and cook several minutes until soft. Push onion to sides of pan and add cauli rice. Cook until browned and softened, 5-7 minutes.
Mix together cauli with onions in pan and remove to a separate bowl. Add additional fat if needed for cooking egg yolks. I made mine whole but of course you can scramble them if you prefer!
Once yolks are cooked remove from pan. Crumble bacon and mix together with cauli and onion. Taste and add sea salt if desired. Top with egg yolks (or combine if you prefer). Enjoy!
I like eating whole egg yolks but if you prefer scrambled that will work just as well!!
