The first question people often ask when they hear about the Autoimmune Protocol is, “What do I eat for breakfast?”. Since most of the traditional breakfast foods have been removed from the diet, there are not too many options left for quick, nutritious morning meals. These patties are easy to make in bulk to be frozen for a quick reheat in the morning. I usually eat them with some breakfast greens, sauerkraut and a mug of bone broth.
The fresh herbs and spices add a lot of flavor to an otherwise boring patty – feel free to use more or less of the different herbs to make the blend your own. You can also play with the patty size to pre-ration how much breakfast meat you want to be eating – I make them on the small side so that I can be flexible about portions. I freeze them between sheets of parchment paper and re-heat in a skillet in the morning.
2lbs grass-fed ground beef
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon fresh sage
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon coconut oil
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, fresh herbs, and sea salt. Form into patties using the palms of your hands. Heat some of the coconut oil in a cast-iron skillet on medium heat. Cook the patties for about 5-8 minutes a side, until nicely browned on the outside and cooked throughout.
