Mashed Potato Waffles

When you start to think outside the box, many things become possible. Take these mashed potato waffles. Normally you might not think to create something beyond your standard breakfast waffle. But with mashed potato waffles, many new and epic things become possible.

Savory breakfast sandwiches, mostly. But…um…is there anything wrong with that? Nope. Not one thing.

Kalamata Olive Dressing

Since completely revamping my diet, I’ve learned a thing or two about a good salad. The first rule: salads are only boring and flavorless if you make them boring and flavorless. How do you liven up a boring salad? This kalamata olive dressing is an excellent way to add some excitement to an otherwise meh meal.

Kalamata olives have been my best friends this summer. Their bright, briney flavor adds a flair to almost anything! So of course, I’ve been enjoying kalamata olives as a snack, a topping, a mix-in, and now a dressing. Drizzle this blend of chopped olives, herbs and oil on salads, chicken, beef, roasted vegetables…there are endless possibilities!

Mashed Plantains (Sweet or Savory) | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Mashed Plantains—Sweet & Savory

I’ve gushed about plantains many times on my blog. And now I’m going back to basics. This mashed plantains recipe is stupid simple, versatile, and can be made in bulk for meals throughout the week. I’ve included a sweet option and a savory option so you can use this recipe regardless of how ripe your plantains are.

For both versions, the method is the same; the ingredients just differ slightly between the two. Pair either version with a variety of meals — shredded beef, grilled chicken, plantain and olive beef bowls (er, wait…I haven’t shared that recipe yet!).

How To Make Pickled Jalapeños

By far, my favorite obsession this summer is pickling. I’ve pickled jalapeños, radishes, and onions. Next on my list are beets, garlic, and ginger. And even though it’s excessively easy, I’m sharing how to make pickled jalapeños in today’s post!

I posted a quick-and-easy tutorial about pickled jalapeños on Instagram a while ago, and it ended up being a hit. It only makes sense to take prettier pictures and post the recipe here, right? That way, it’s easier for you to find and reference.

Grilled Walleye with Mango Salsa | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Grilled Walleye with Mango Salsa

One of my goals for the summer was to eat more seafood, especially seafood that’s new to me. Fresh, affordable, sustainable seafood is actually available in the summer and I didn’t want to pass up the chance to try new fish and sea creatures that I haven’t had the pleasure of cooking myself.

Walleye was high up on my list because it’s a hot item in North Dakota/Minnesota in the summer. Many people catch their own walleye and have huge fish fries. I didn’t go that route (because I’m not up to the task of gutting my own fish yet). But I did get my hands on some beautiful, wild caught walleye fillets! And since it’s summer, the only obvious recipe to make is grilled walleye.
