In the slimming-down spirit of Spring, I’ve been experimenting with a sort of Paleo-Meets-Atkins food regimen recently.
I can say that, while this gal loves her gluten free pizza, bread, cereal, and pasta, and I will never forsake these completely, the lower-carb diet is making me feel great! So I’m going to be sharing some high in protein recipes with you over the next few months.
Here’s my go-to breakfast for when I’m sick of scrambled or poached eggs. It bakes up quickly, and I can eat it for a few days. Enjoy!

What’s your handle and what are you known for?
My cooking/skating blog is Cooking on Skates, where I’m known as Kelly Von Lunen. For Roller Derby and pinup modeling, I’m known as Mel Breakdown. Professionally, I’m a writer and editor. I am a rookie derby girl for Dead Girl Derby’s Royal Pains, and I enjoy cooking, baking, and modeling modern pinup.
I made these for our wedding in 2011. Here’s the recipe, courtesy of a year’s worth of trial and error by me, and lots of testing courtesy of Husband. Enjoy!
