Total Time12 mins
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Paleo
Servings: 1 serving


  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Slices of Bacon
  • 1 cup Veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc)


  • Steam the veggies: Put veggies in bowl with approximately 1 tbsp of water. Place bowl in microwave and cover with plate. Cook veggies on high for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. If veggies can be easily pierced with fork, discard any remaining water and set aside. Otherwise, continue microwaving in 30 second increments until veggies are tender enough for fork-piercing.
  • Cook the bacon: Put a paper towel or napkin on plate. Put 2 slices of bacon side by side on top of paper towels. Put another layer of paper towels on top of bacon. Microwave bacon on high for 4 minutes (or until preferred bacon crispiness is achieved). Remove from microwave, wait until bacon has cooled enough to touch, and break up bacon into small pieces.
  • Make the scramble: Crack two eggs in the bowl you used to steam the veggies (minus the veggies). Add a splash of water and with a fork, whisk eggs until evenly mixed. Add veggies and bacon pieces to egg mixture (and salt and pepper if available) and combine. Set bowl in microwave and cook on high for 45 seconds. Remove from microwave, stir contents until cooked eggs are evenly combined with non-cooked eggs, and microwave on high for another 30 seconds. Stir egg mixture again and microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat until eggs are cooked and then serve!


* To make this vegetarian: lose the bacon, add another egg and a 2nd cup of veggies!
