Broccoli Slaw And Pancetta Breakfast Scramble (Whole30)

Whole30 Broccoli Slaw And Pancetta Breakfast Scramble

I’ve been craving bacon. While Brian eats no pork and red meat and absolutely never cheats, I do like bacon every once in a while, and if we’re eating out I will treat myself to a steak or a burger, and lately all I’ve been thinking about is bacon.

I’ve tried to find Whole30 compliant bacon, but the compliant brands are not sold at any of the stores near us, and frankly, the one compliant option at Costco isn’t something I want to be eating anyway. Because I’m just not going to spend my time driving all over the place to just buy bacon, I haven’t had any in almost two months.

Thankfully, I got my bacon fix in by buying pancetta! Safeway sells thin sheets of pancetta that are Whole30 compliant!

Pancetta is the Italian version of bacon. It’s made from pork belly meat that is seasoned with salt and pepper, curled into a tight roll, wrapped in a casing, and cured but not smoked.

For this Whole30 Breakfast Scramble, I combined chopped veggies, potatoes, broccoli slaw, and pancetta to create a slightly crunchy scramble that was TO. DIE. FOR. The salty pancetta with the broccoli slaw was just fantastic.

Broccoli Slaw And Pancetta Breakfast Scramble

Making this Whole30 breakfast scramble was a piece of cake, but I did have to use two skillets.

I first cut up a bunch of mixed small potatoes and put them in the microwave to cook on the potato setting. While the potatoes were cooking, I chopped up onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers, put them in a large skillet, and began sauteing them in a little olive oil. As the onions became translucent, I added two handfuls of broccoli slaw.

I then laid the pancetta flat in the second skillet, in a single layer, and sauteed it over medium heat until almost crunchy. I then removed the pancetta from the skillet and chopped it up into small pieces.

When the potatoes were done in the microwave, I combined the potatoes and the vegetables and mixed the ingredients together, adding black pepper and a little garlic powder. Next I added the eggs and one more handful of broccoli slaw to make sure some of the slaw was still a little crunchy in the scramble.

I topped the scramble with the freshly chopped pancetta and served the Broccoli Slaw And Pancetta Breakfast Scramble to myself! Brian’s breakfast scramble didn’t have any pancetta so I had all of it — and I didn’t even feel bad about it!
