A simple breakfast recipe including American classics and favorites, keto, diet, breakfast, low carb


I first had these at my in-laws house my first Christmas spent there. It is a Christmas Day breakfast tradition of their's to have these and I couldn't believe I had never seen these before! Such a simple but great combination.

These are also a great keto meal if you are in to that kind of thing. Below I will include step by step pictures of how we make these suckers!

Preheat oven to 400ºF

Grease the pan! This is essential to have your cups come out clean and your bacon not sticking to the pan!

Line the cups with a strip of bacon each and then bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes

Line the bottom of the muffin tin with some sort of bread, if this is keto for you then skip this step! We like Hawaiian flat breads in ours.

This Healthy Korean Beef with Brown Rice is a lighter version of a classic Asian dish that sacrifices none of the flavor!

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • There are so many different ways to make this recipe. Try using white rice or quinoa in place of the brown rice. Or consider using ground beef or even steak strips instead of the ground turkey. And you could totally add broccoli (or other veggies) to the simmering beef before serving. So many options!
  • The green onions on top are optional, of course. But I feel like they add such a great depth of flavor.
  • This easy dinner is delicious no matter how you're eating. But if you're trying to eat healthy, it's an especially great recipe to have in your back pocket. If you happen to be doing WW, it's SUPER low points on Purple when you use turkey and brown rice!

Authentic Italian Lasagna

An authentic Italian lasagna recipe straight from my wife's Italian family in Sardegna. 


Real, authentic, Italian lasagna recipe straight from Italy

My Mother-in-law is from Sardegna, Italy. After graduating from college we were able to visit my wife's Italian family and the food was out of this world! I've never had so much pizza and gelato and was never so glad to it. All food is on another level there and I'm not sure why.

During dinner meals there are several courses, if I remember correctly there are near five courses. I did not know this when first eating with her family and went heavy on the pasta because it was so stinking good! It ended up only being the third course and with my wife's Grandma insisting I eat more, and more, and more. I obliged because I thought the meal was wrapping up with the pasta being the main dish. This is not the case, and I was only half way through the meal but completely filled. I pushed through though and made it happen. 

Real, authentic, Italian lasagna recipe straight from Italy

One of the dishes from my wife's Italian family that is tried and true and well known is their lasagna. It is my Mother-in-law's recipe and without question is the best lasagna I've ever had. Put it to the test and try it out yourself!

Sweet Hawaiian Breakfast Omelette

A sweet variation of the all-american breakfast favorite omelette.


Sweet breakfast omelette recipe with Hawaiian flavors from onion, brown sugar, and pineapple


Ahh, the breakfast omelette. A true testament to breakfast being the best meal of the day. Eggs are eggs. High protein, healthy fat, and delicious. Eggs are great. Combine that with whatever fixins you like, and of course cheese (lots and lots of cheese), and you come out with the beautiful breakfast concoction that is the omelette.





Many recipes I post are spinoffs of other recipes I found that I like and adjusted to the way I like it. But there are some, a select some, that just come to me and are spun out of random inspiration. Most of my meat recipes come from this random inspiration that just leads me to know what sauces and seasonings to combine to give the meat great flavor and moisture. I do this often enough that my wife will really enjoy the meal, want me to recreate it, and I have no recollection of how to do so. Such was the case with this omelette. I had some left over crushed pineapple in the fridge, it was breakfast time, I love eggs, and my mind started to spin. Minutes later, I had this recipe created. I am a fan of the traditional savory omelette, but this was a changeup I loved. I wrote down the recipe as I created this one so I could remember how to recreate it and share it with you all! Enjoy!

Bakery Style Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Muffins

The classic bakery-style chocolate chip muffin topped with sea salt.

The classic bakery-style chocolate chip muffin topped with sea salt.

I tried several recipes out to find the best bakery-style muffin recipe I could. Some didn't work out too well, some were alright, and some met that bakery-style muffin expectation I had hoped for!

The difference in those recipes from the average and not so great recipes was the BAKING TEMPERATURE. To get that almost crispy outside to the muffin while it's soft in the middle is blasting the muffins with high heat for the first 5 minutes and then cooling down the temperature to make sure the muffin is cooked through in its entirety. Check out this video below to see the step by step process!





I don't know the science behind why this works and not interested in finding out too much, I just know it does work and it made a real difference! Hope you find this useful and enjoy an American favorite!

King's Hawaiian Rolls Copy Cat Recipe

King's Hawaiian Rolls copy cat recipe that brings an American dinner favorite to your table as the perfect side. 



Have you ever met anyone that didn't love a King's Hawaiian Roll? I don't think so. Actually, scratch that, i know so. Frankly, if I met someone that doesn't love their rolls, I would disregard anything they said, thought, did, created, etc.



They're just flat out, stinking, good. I tried several Hawaiian Roll recipes and this was by far the closest to the real thing. The recipe turned out moist, fluffy, and had layer upon layer of mildly sweet goodness to them.

We had leftovers from every recipe we tried, but this was the only recipe where the leftovers were nearly as good as having them fresh out of the oven. The other recipes, the rolls were almost rocks the next day. These remained ULTRA soft and fluffy. And of course they maintained their beautiful flavor as well throughout the proceeding days after baking conception.

Try this recipe out at home and instantly make your family happy! The real pineapple in the dough does wonders for the bread and makes these as compatible to the real thing as you'll find out there. Enjoy!
