Whole30 Breakfast Salad with Poached Egg – the perfect way to start your day!
This is one of my favorite weekend breakfasts (or even a quick weeknight dinner) – so easy, delicious and satisfying!
I absolutely love having greens involved in my breakfast, so the idea of a breakfast salad is my current favorite thing to make in the mornings! And this breakfast salad is the perfect re-mix of your classic bacon and eggs. Plus, I even tell you how to make your own little bacon vinaigrette using a little bit of the leftover bacon grease. You don’t need a lot, but when it mixes with that perfect poached egg….. holy buckets. You guys are going to love it!
This would be fun to make for Easter, Mother’s Day or really any brunch!
Hope you guys are having a good week!
