Paleo Breakfast Hash Brown Sliders

easy paleo recipe for hash brown breakfast sliders

Here’s a delicious stack ’em high paleo breakfast when you wake up with a Paul Bunyan-sized appetite and really want to jumpstart your metabolism for the day. 

There’s nothing dainty about this one my friends. It’s lots of grub, all paleo, very easy to make, and wow is it tasty!

Now for all you breakfast nibblers or even skippers, consider this: starting your day with a healthy breakfast loaded with protein, healthy fats and some carbs may actually help you shed a few pounds…providing you ease up on your lunch and dinner.

In a 2013 study published in Obesity magazine, overweight women participants were divided into two groups. The first group ate a big breakfast and a lighter dinner. The second group ate a lighter breakfast and heavier dinner. Both groups consumed the same number of calories each day. After 3 months, the women who started their day with a big breakfast lost significantly more pounds and inches than the study’s lighter breakfast participants. Interesting huh?

And one more factoid from the study: the heavier breakfast eaters reported feeling less hungry and more satisfied the rest of the day. 

Before I switched to paleo, I was in the light or no breakfast camp myself. Now I routinely eat a healthy, decent-sized breakfast before heading off to work, and I can really tell the difference. A good morning meal keeps me evenly fueled without the carb cravings I used to have.

So enough with the science, let’s get cooking!

This big breakfast is super easy – and you probably have everything you need already.

Hash browns are one of my breakfast faves. I made these slider patties with a white-flesh sweet potato, but feel free to go with a yam if you like. All it takes is a little grating of the potato and onion, plus a whisked egg and a little coconut flour to bind them. Add any other spices you like and then cook them up – just make sure your pan is not too hot or they may turn out a bit crispy.

Then stack these bad boys up with with some bacon, an egg (any style you like) and guacamole or just avocado slices.

When you’ve got a lumberjack’s appetite and a little extra time, this is one healthy, hearty and easy paleo breakfast you don’t want to skip!

    I’m new to paleo, considering the lifestyle, but I’m curious how bacon and ham are considered paleo as they are processed meats.

      They are allowed. They are processed in the form of curing or smoking, minimally processed. One could argue it shouldn’t be eaten, but most paleo people have it as part of their diets. They are even selling paleo approved bacon at Whole foods and srpouts. You have to decide what you want to allow. I like bacon once in a while and look for the cleanest brands I can find. The same goes with chicken and beef. Grass fed is best, but not all people can afford them, and if you follow paleo with everything else you’re going to do great!
