You are going to love The Farmer’s Daughter Recipe.

My father is not really a farmer. Like a farmer, though, my dad works damn hard. He is by far one of the hardest working men I have ever known.

I grew up in the country on dusty, gravel roads. Three sides of our house were fenced in by cornfields.

Compared to the life I know now, I was kind of a farmer’s daughter.

I think I got my work ethic from my father.

And so I ran with this idea about a month ago.

You can, too, with just 5 main ingredients. No hard work necessary.

Brussels sprouts.

p.s. Because I’m so honest, you should know that my father would never actually eat this. He hates eggs. And Brussels sprouts. He probably hates hazelnuts and sage, too. But I can guarantee he’d eat the bacon.

The Farmer's Daughter Recipe
Recipe type: Main
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
A simple Paleo dish to serve in a hurry or as a side for a larger event, complete with bacon, Brussels sprouts, and poached eggs.
  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts, only the leaves
  • ½ cup raw hazelnuts, halved
  • 1 cup bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 Tbsp fresh, chopped sage (1/2 Tbsp per plate)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Toss the Brussels sprout leaves and ½ Tbsp olive oil in a bowl. Sprinkle with a little sea salt.
  3. Spread the leaves out in a single, thin layer and evenly on a tinfoil-covered sheet.
  4. Bake Brussels sprout leaves for about 6 minutes (you want them to be slightly crispy).
  5. Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a pan (I didn't use any oil or anything since the bacon will produce its own grease).
  6. In another pan, saute the hazelnuts in ½ Tbsp olive oil.
  7. Poach 2 eggs.
  8. Once all pieces are done, plate them as such: leaves on the bottom, then bacon, then hazelnuts. Top with egg, sage and sea salt + pepper (if desired)
How to get Brussels sprout "leaves:" Cut off Brussels sprout ends. Several leaves will gently fall off. Use those. {Steam the "leftover" sprouts to eat later}
Don't judge, but I had never poached an egg before this day. I learned in a quick minute how to do it via, "How to Poach an Egg-Food Network" (Clearly I'm already a pro.)

  1. Wow. That looks truly delicious! I love those bacon bits ‘n’ pieces at TJ’s – so handy for recipes like this. Chopping bacon is a pain in the butt, and once it’s browned, I have a hard time not snitching it as I’m supposed to be crumbling it up for a recipe . . . this alleviates those issues!

    1. Well, it only alleviates it a little bit. Trust me, we were still snatching up little bites here and there!
