One thing I've had to forgo on the road is the All American dish called the "Breakfast Skillet" The skillet is usually eggs, bacon (or sausage) with taters fried in a skillet and then you garnish it with lots of goodies like avocado and Chili peppers if it's a Mexican Skillet or if it's a more traditional northern skillet you might just add some gravy over the top. Pretty much anything you care to add. However, the one thing I've found, is every skillet I've seen in restaurants is made with Potatoes. This means it's not low carb, and thus out of reach for me. That is until I got home this week and whip up my own Paleo Low Carb Skillet.
First thing I do is go shopping and get a couple bags of pre broken up cauliflower at Smart and Final. Then I bring a stock pot to boil then add a bag and a half of cauliflower and boil for 6 to 8 minutes (sometimes I have to go 8 minutes because my stove sucks.), then I drain off the water and add a half cup of butter and an entire box of cream cheese and use a wooden spoon or a tater masher to mix it all. up. Season to taste. I like to put in salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a tablespoon of mustard powder. This makes a lot of mashed cauliflower so I refrigerate it although I've never had to refrigerate it longer than one day because this stuff gets eaten fast.
This A.m. I took some of that left over cauliflower (at least two cups) and added a couple home grown eggs and mixed it up.
Then I add the Eggy Cauliflower Taters to the bottom of the bacon infused pan and let it cook off some of the water that the Cauliflower invariably has at medium low.
This is the consistency of the eggs with cauliflower when it's done.
Now, I mix it up and add it onto a plate and try to be creative. This replaces both potatos and eggs in one swoop. (although you could fry a couple eggs and put them on top and treat this like taters if you choose) And too be honest by adding the egg to the cauliflower like this it tastes the most like hash browned potatoes (other than the real thing) of anything I've found...Enjoy!
