breakfastwithgeorge

In celebration of the much anticipated release of The Paleo Kitchen, we’re giving away THREE seats to a private Breakfast on the Farm event with one of the authors — George Bryant, the Civilized Caveman himself!

Every time a new paleo/primal/real food book comes out, it’s exciting. But the Primal Pastures family is extra excited about The Paleo Kitchen by George Bryant (Civilized Caveman) and Juli Bauer (PaleOMG). We were lucky enough to get our hands on a copy just a few days ago (The Paleo Kitchen won’t be available for purchase until June 10), and let me tell you — this thing is incredible! Farmer Paul’s wife Lynsey has been going nuts with it, trying multiple recipes a day — all of which have completely WOW’d us all.

Anyone who has visited his website or follows him on instagram and/or facebook also knows that he’s an all around fun-loving guy with a killer sense of humor and an incredibly positive outlook on life!

Ingredients
  1. ½ pound (225 grams) bacon
For the sweet potato mash
  1. 3 to 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes (1¼ pounds/560 grams)
  2. ¼ cup (60 mL) coconut milk
  3. ½ teaspoon dried sage
  4. ¼ teaspoon salt
For the cauliflower mash
  1. 1 head cauliflower (1½ pounds/750 grams), chopped into florets
  2. ¼ cup (60 mL) coconut milk
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
For the ground beef mixture
  1. 2 pounds (910 grams) ground beef
  2. 1 garlic clove, minced
  3. 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  4. 8 ounces (225 grams) button mushrooms, diced
  5. salt and pepper, to taste
  6. coconut oil, for greasing the baking dish
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9-by-13-inch (23-by-33-cm) baking dish.
  2. Place the bacon on a rimmed baking sheet, place in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until cooked through. Roughly chop the bacon. Set aside.
  3. Turn up the oven to 400°F (205°C). Poke holes in sweet potato with a fork. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft and easily pieced through with a knife. The time may range depending on the thickness of the sweet potatoes.
  4. While the potatoes are baking, steam the cauliflower. Once cauliflower is fork tender, place it in a food processor or blender and puree until cauliflower becomes soft and resembles mashed potatoes. Then add the coconut milk and salt and pepper and continue to blend until you have a smooth consistency. Remove from the blender and set aside. Clean out the blender for the sweet potato mash.
  5. When sweet potatoes are soft, remove their skins and place in the food processor or blender. Blend until the sweet potato breaks down, then add the coconut milk, sage, and salt and pepper and puree until smooth. Set aside for later.
  6. Lastly, place a large pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and break it apart with a wooden spoon. Once the meat begins to brown, add the garlic, yellow onion and button mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and continue to cook until the meat is cooked through, then remove the pan from heat.
  7. Create the layers: Use a slotted spoon to remove half of the meat mixture from the excess liquid in the pan and place in the prepared baking dish in one layer. Then pour the cauliflower mash mixture on top of the meat and spread out. Then, using the slotted spoon, add the other half of the meat on top of the cauliflower mash. Lastly, pour the sweet potato mash on top and spread it out on top of the meat.
  8. Turn oven down to 350°F (175°C) degrees. Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the casserole begins to bubble. Then turn on the broiler to high and cook for 5 minutes to brown the top of the casserole. Let rest to thicken and garnish with the bacon before serving.

Happy Easter! *And 2 Year Anniversary Giveaway*

Two Easters ago, the guys of Primal Pastures (Tom, Jeff, Paul, and Rob) ordered 50 chicks and started a facebook page with a dream of one day supplying Southern California with the best poultry around.

This first batch of birds sold out before they were even ready to be processed. And by the time they were ready, we had accumulated over 100 additional customers on our wait list. The demand for healthy, pastured poultry was greater than we could have ever imagined. We were so excited for what was to come and are now extremely grateful to be where we are today.

Since starting our little farm in 2012, the following things have happened:

  • Launched a kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $40,000 that would go towards adding additional types of animals to our inventory for you and your families to enjoy. Because of YOU, we were able to exceed our kickstarter goal and raise a whopping $57,810!
  • In addition to chickens, we began raising egg-laying hens as well as sheep and turkeys (and also began offering beef and pork from Standing Bar G Productions and Cook Pigs Ranch).
  • Started implementing Breakfast on the Farm events for people who share an interest in pastured meats to come together and mingle, meet the farmers, and enjoy a delicious two-course meal (all while watching animals grazing on the pasture).
  • Began offering farm tours for individuals and families to witness with their own eyes the superior quality of life that our animals are provided with (and learn many interesting tid-bits and facts about the numerous benefits of pastured eggs and meats)!
  • Expanded our product list to include Primal Bread as well as raw, local, organic, unfiltered honey, and more deliciously primal yummies!

Although much has changed in the last two years, our goals haven’t. We are still 100% committed to helping you and your families lead more healthy lifestyles based on God and nature’s brilliant design. And this blog is an extension of that. This blog is for you. It’s one more resource that can help you discover ways to grow in health and wellness (and get to know all of us better)!

And it’s a way for us to say thank you for your support over the last two years! But we also want to say thank you by giving away a bunch of free stuff — $500 worth of…

  • T-shirts
  • Tote Bags
  • Aprons
  • Stickers
  • Farm Tours
  • Workshop Tickets
  • Breakfast on the Farm Tickets
  • Gift Cards to our Online Store

The catch? Sign up to receive free weekly From the Pasture email updates and comment on a post. That’s it! Easy right?

Sign up and comment anytime this week to win — we will randomly select the winners on Monday, April 28.

We hope that you will give us the chance to get to know you through this blog. And more importantly, we hope that you will all have a very HAPPY EASTER!
