Throw in some quality, grass-fed beef hot dogs and you’ll have one non-traditional Paleo breakfast that even your kids will eat without complaining.
I know what you’re thinking.
How can hot dogs possibly be Paleo? Aren’t they full of mystery meat (that’s probably not even meat), chemicals and “natural flavorings” that aren’t natural at all?
The hot dogs you buy at the ball park should definitely be avoided, but it is possible to get quality hot dogs made from grass-fed beef. Ask around and see if anyone knows of a farmer near you who can get you hot dogs with a clean list of ingredients. Or use the almighty Google.
I pick up a package of Applegate Organic Grass-Fed hot dogs from the grocery store when I’m in a pinch. Just be aware of the tiny label that says grass-fed because they make several different varieties. One says vegetarian-fed and the other is labeled grass-fed. The color of the packaging is different but everything else looks the same so be sure to read the label on this one.
Spicing up your food is one of the best ways to change up your meal. If you’re not used to cooking with plenty of herbs and spices, there’s no time like the present to learn. Start experimenting with different flavor profiles to see which ones go well together for your palate.
Buying pre-made spice blends can get boring fast so I stock my spice drawer with several different herbs and seasonings so I can mix-and-match on my own.
The majority of my spice drawer comes from Penzey’s Spices, because they’re simply the best in terms of flavor and freshness.
If you do not have Parisien Bonnes Herbes, which is the herb blend I used in this recipe, you can either combine all the different herbs to make your own blend, or substitute with your favorite dried herb in it’s place.
The Penzey’s Parisien blend is a hand-made mix that includes: chives, dill weed, French basil, French tarragon, chervil and white pepper.
