Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread

This Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread is bursting with flavor, and you’ll love the sturdy and crispy crust made with cassava flour!

Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread

I’m usually not a huge fan adding fruits to savory recipes. I don’t know why. I think it’s just something I’m not used to and my parents never added fruits to recipes growing. But, with the abundance of fruits I’ve been seeing at the farmers market, I couldn’t not try to add them into all the things I’ve been cooking, and this Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread recipe just might have changed my mind about the way I feel about fruits in savory dishes.

Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread Recipe

When I first decided to cook with peaches, my first thought was, “I bet it’ll be AMAZING with bacon!” But then again, what isn’t? I used this amazing combo to make a paleo flatbread recipe that I’m pretty much obsessed with. The salty and sweet and combo is so addicting, and there are so many awesome textures that work so well together: soft peach, crispy bacon, and creamy cauliflower cashew cheese, all over a soft but sturdy flatbread dough that you wouldn’t believe is grain free.

Cassava Flour Flatbread Dough

The base of this paleo flatbread is made with cassava flour, which I’ve been using more and more of in my cooking. It’s made from cassava root, which is a starchy vegetable, and it’s one of my favorite paleo flours that resembles wheat flour the most out of any grain-free flours I’ve used.

The cassava flour dough turned out sturdy and crispy, and if you love thin crust pizzas, you’ll be obsessed this Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread!

I guest posted this Peach and Bacon Paleo Flatbread recipe on Lauren Geertsen’s blog, Empowered Sustenance, so go check it out there. I hope you love it as much as I do!:

Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs

These paleo Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs are the most delicious finger food that’s full of healthy and yummy fats. Make them for your next party or gathering!

Paleo Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs-2

You guys, I think I have a new favorite deviled eggs recipe. Actually, it’s a toss up between this one and my Pickle Deviled Eggs recipe, and it’s really hard to decide which one I love more.

I made these Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs because my husband has a serious ranch obsession that won’t quit. I don’t love ranch so I didn’t think I would like these THAT much, but I was surprised by how tasty these turned out. And it really does taste like ranch!

Paleo Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs

Theses Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs are a perfect finger food for parties and gatherings, or if you just want a healthy, low carb afternoon snack. I just love the combination of the textures: smooth and creamy yolk mixture with the crunchy and salty bacon bits.

And with 2018 quickly approaching, this little appetizer will go great with your champagne as the ball drops, but it’s an all around great recipe for all year round. I hope you try it because my husband couldn’t stop raving about it. He actually doesn’t even love the healthy kind of ranch, and prefers the type you buy bottled up at grocery stores filled with additives and vegetable oils. So the fact that he really liked these deviled eggs with none of that harmful stuff makes me so so happy and I think any ranch lover in your life will enjoy these as well!

Ingredients

  • 3 slices thick cut sugar-free bacon, chopped preferably pasture-raised and nitrate free
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup paleo mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh chives for garnish

Instructions

  1. Fry the chopped bacon in a skillet over medium heat until they are browned and crispy, about 5 minutes. Set aside. 

  2. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan.

  3. Take out eggs straight from the fridge, then lower the eggs into the water so they don't break, and let it come to a boil again. Once it does, lower the heat, and let the eggs simmer for 11 minutes

  4. Prepare a large bowl with an ice bath. Once the eggs are done cooking, place them in the ice bath for at least 15 minutes.

  5. Peel the eggs under cold running water.*

  6. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Take out the yolks and place in a bowl.

  7. Add paleo mayonnaise, dijon mustard, dill, onion powder, garlic powder, chives, salt, and pepper to the yolks, and then add the bacon bits, reserving about 1 tablespoon to set aside.

  8. Mash with a fork until fully combined and creamy, then fill the egg whites with the mixture evenly.

  9. Garnish with reserved bacon bits and chopped chives. 

  10. Refrigerate about 4 days.

Recipe Notes

*There are many ways to cook hard-boiled eggs, but I found that this method makes the best, easy-to-peel egg without the shell sticking to the whites. If you prefer another method, you can cook it in any way that works best for you!

Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole

Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole

Ever since you lovely readers told me how much you loved my Paleo Chicken and Rice Casserole, I’ve been trying to create more casserole recipes on my blog which I’ve been lacking in. So when the folks at Path of Life reached out to me about using one of their yummy frozen products to create a dish, I thought this was a great opportunity to do just that!

Path of Life is a family owned, natural and organic food company that creates clean and healthy frozen side dishes and produce that are high in quality and delicious in flavor. I was especially interested in their frozen vegetable side dishes because I’m always looking for ways to whip up a meal that’s quick and easy, and these side dishes looked like such a convenient and healthy way to do that.

I decided to try out their All Natural Roasted Garlic Cauliflower because I love how simple and clean the ingredients are: cauliflower, extra virgin olive oil, roasted garlic, parsley, sea salt. Yes, pleaaase. All the frozen side dishes can be prepared in just 4 minutes in the microwave, but I decided to go a slightly different route to make this Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole.

For this paleo-fied version, I used sweet potatoes for the noodles and Path of Life All Natural Roasted Garlic Cauliflower to make the dairy-free alfredo sauce, which turned out so creamy and decadent without even a hint of dairy. I’m always giddy about the power of cauliflower to make sauces and soups so thick and smooth, and I loved that I didn’t need to add much spices to the sauce because the seasoning on the cauliflower was already really great for this recipe.

This Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole was so warm and comforting, and my husband and I really enjoyed the combination of the garlicky cauliflower alfredo sauce with the salty bacon. It is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but it’s also very veggie-heavy so you can eat it as a side dish if you are looking for a bit more protein!
