Breakfast Dish Recipes from Sage Hill Farms
My recipe for those who want to eat pancakes without feeling like you swallowed a beach ball:
Almond Meal Pancakes:
1 cup of almond meal- I love Traders Joe’s brand
Make them small or medium sized. Try to spread the mixture out in the pan to make them thinner. You have to cook them on medium so they won’t burn on the outside and not be done on the inside. I use only butter to cook them in the ceramic skillet that Michael Q Pink bought from the ad on TV.
You can eat them plain or with maple syrup (which defeats the purpose if you are low carbing)
I LOVE Trader Joe’s Creme Fraiche. So good to use as a garnish with so many things, but sometimes I just eat a spoonful by itself. IDK, maybe it’s just me. Have it with a teaspoon of Trader Joe’s organic reduced sugar raspberry preserves. Can you tell where I shop? I ran out of Bea Kunz’s fresh organic jam, so had to settle for a substitute.
It’s a bit like having crepes. So delicious!

Omelet in Tomato and Herb Sauce
Put eggs in a bowl with flour, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Beat to mix well.
Heat the oil in a fry pan, pour in the mixture and tilt the pan so that it covers the base.
Fry omelet on both sides until set, shaking the pan frequently to prevent sticking.
Remove from the pan and leave to cool slightly, and then cut into slices.
Add the onion, celery and herbs to the pan with a little more oil, fry gently for 5 minutes.
Add tomato and cook gently for 10 minutes, then return the slices of omelet to the pan and heat through for 5 minutes.
Sauté the onions in 3 tbsp butter until tender. Stir in the flour and pepper; mix in the broth and white wine.
Place 6 sheets of the phyllo pastry on a work board and cover with a damp cloth to keep it from drying out. Brush the pastry one sheet at a time with melted butter, and sprinkle lightly with cornmeal, stacking after the completion of each sheet.
Spread half the onion mixture to within 1 inch of the edge in the middle third of the pastry. Fold one end over the onion mixture. Roll, as for a jelly roll. Place seam side down on a baking sheet and brush with butter.
Repeat the process with the remaining pastry to make another strudel.
Serves 6 to 8 easily.
