Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 package broccolini 
  • 3 tbsp olive oil 
  • 212 oz bags cauliflower rice (or 1 head of cauliflower)
  • 2 tsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp canned coconut milk (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp black cracked pepper
  • 1 tbsp chives (fresh or dried)
  • Olive Oil and Red Pepper Flakes for garnish

Instructions

Sausage Patties & Fried Eggs:

  1. In a large pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. 
  2. Remove the ground sausage from the packaging and form small patties. (You should be able to get 8 small/medium patties)
  3. Transfer the sausage into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature is 160F
  4. Once the sausage is cooked, crack each egg into the pan and cook until desired doneness. 

Cauliflower Mash:

  1. Bring 1 head of cauliflower to a boil and cook for 10 mins or steam 2 bags of cauliflower rice in the microwave per instructions on the package.
  2. Drain liquid from the cauliflower and add to the food processor with garlic powder, chives, ghee, coconut milk, salt and pepper.
  3. Blend together until smooth and top with fresh chives. Make sure NOT over blend or it will turn into a soupy puree.
  4. Transfer the cauliflower mash to a bowl and top with ghee, salt, pepper and chives.

Broccolini:

  1. In a large pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. 
  2. Add broccolini, toss frequently until browned and bright green, about 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle a little salt over the broccolini. 
  4. Add water, cook until water is evaporated and broccolini is soft, another 5 minutes.

Build Your Bowl:

  1. Place a big scoop of the cauliflower grits into each bowl along with the broccolini and the sausage patties. Place the fried egg over the grits and drizzle with additional olive oil and garnish with red pepper flakes.
