Fajita Frittata with 4th & Heart Himalayan Pink Salt Ghee

Is there anyone out there who doesn't like fajitas? They're easily my go to meal when making or eating Mexican food. They're simple and straight forward while still packing some delicious flavor. So I figured why not turn fajitas into one of my favorite breakfast dishes, a frittata.

I took the fajita essentials - bell pepper, onion, salsa and added in some of my favorite fajita fillings - zucchini and avocado. Brought it all together with some garlic and 4th & Heart Himalyan pink salt ghee, and we have ourselves the perfect way to spice up your Sunday brunch or really breakfast any day of the week!

Here's What You'll Need:

-6 eggs
-2 tbsp milk of your choosing (I usually go with unsweetened almond milk)
-1 tbsp 4th & Heart Himalayan pink salt ghee
-2 tbsp salsa (and additional to top if desired)
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 small zucchini, spiralized (or cut into 1/4" semi circles)
-1 bell pepper, stem removed and seeded sliced into 1/4" thick rings (width wise)
-1/4 small onion, chopped
-1/2 avocado, sliced
-Himalyan pink sea salt and pepper to taste

Serves 4-6


1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees on broil.
2) In a cast iron skillet, heat up the tbsp of ghee on the stove top over medium high heat until melted. Move the pan around to coat the pan completely with the ghee.
3) Add the garlic and onion to the ghee and cook for about 3 minutes until the onion cooks down a bit.
4) Add in the zucchini and bell pepper rings and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes mixing regularly.
5) In the meantime, mix together the 6 eggs, (almond) milk, salsa, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
6) Add the egg mixture to the skillet pouring over evenly. Feel free to move the pan around to make sure the egg mixture is evenly dispersed.
7) Add in the avocado slices to the top of the mixture, spacing evenly. 
8) Cover and cook for about 3-5 minutes on the stove top until the sides of the egg mixture seem cooked and stick to the sides.
9) Move the skillet into the preheated oven and cook until the top is a golden brown (about 10 minutes).
10) Remove the skillet from the oven, and let it cool for about 5 minutes. 
11) Cut the frittata into slices. Serve and enjoy!

I topped mine with some extra hot salsa because I'm a spicy freak, and served it with my mixed potato and veggie hash on the side. Let me know how you ate your frittata and what you think in the comments below!

Fig and Blue Cheese Baked Oats with 4th & Heart Madagascar Vanilla Bean Ghee

So this recipe was a whole lot of new for me. 1) I'd never had a fig before, and 2) I'd never made baked oats before. I figured it was about time to change both of those things, especially when I found some delicious looking organic figs at the market. 

Given the above facts, this recipe was risky. But I'm a fan of baking and LOVE me some sweet and savory, so I decided to just dive in head first with this one and try something a bit out there. I figured this one was probably going to be either a recipe do over or, worst case scenario, a recipe don't. But IT WORKED, and not only did it work, I thought it tasted pretty darn good if I do say so myself! So (assuming you don't hate blue cheese) you really need to give this one a try.

Here's What You'll Need:

-2 tbsp 4th & Heart Madagascar vanilla bean ghee
-1/4 cup roasted pecans, finely chopped
-2 tbsp and 1 tsp maple syrup, separated
-1 tsp arrow root powder
-1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1 egg
-1/2 cup milk of your choice (I went with unsweetened almond milk)
-1/4 cup water
-2-3 tbsp blue cheese crumbles (depending on your love of blue cheese)
-3 figs, thinly sliced

Serves 6-8


1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2) In a cast iron skillet, melt the ghee on the stove top. Move the pan around to coat the sides, and pour the excess ghee into a glass measuring cup or mug.
3) In a small bowl, mix together the pecans, 1 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp of the excess ghee, and the arrow root powder. Set aside.
4) In a large bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, 2 tbsp maple syrup, egg, (almond) milk, water, and remaining excess ghee.
5) Once fully mixed, fold in the blue cheese.
6) Pour the mixture into the cast iron skillet, spreading evenly.
7) Top the mixture with the pecan crumble and fresh figs.
8) Pop the skillet into the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until the top begins to brown and everything is cooked through.
7) Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice the oats into 6-8 pieces, serve, and enjoy!

The 4th & Heart ghee was the perfect addition in this recipe. It added that depth of flavor while also adding the extra health benefits of switching out your standard butter for ghee. Plus it really pulled together that sweet and savory flavor combo just perfectly. I'd love to hear what you think in the comments below!


Mixed Potato and Veggie Hash with 4th & Heart California Garlic Ghee

I was about to call this recipe "The Best Damn Breakfast Potatoes You've Ever Had", but I decided to hold off and let you decide that one for yourself. But SPOILER ALERT, they might just be the best damn breakfast potatoes you've ever had. Potatoes in all shapes and sizes are something I love, probably a little too much. From sweets to reds, mashed potatoes to home fries, I just really like potatoes. I don't necessarily eat them all that often, but they definitely hold a special place in my heart especially when it comes to brunch. 

So when I decided to take on breakfast potatoes, I knew I had to do it right. I wanted them packed with flavor, so I knew using 4th & Heart's California garlic ghee was the only way to go. Just heating up the pan with this stuff makes your mouth water! Add in both sweets AND russets plus some other flavor packed ingredients, and I knew I had the side that can't be beat for your next brunch!

Here's What You'll Need:

-1 medium sweet potato, cut into about 1/2" cubes
-1 small russet potato, cut into about 1/2" cubes
-1 cup baby arugula
-2 cloves garlic, sliced
-1 medium tomato, cut into about 1/2" cubes
-2 tbsp 4th & Heart California garlic ghee, separated
-1/4 tsp Himalayan pink sea salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper
-1/4 tsp chili powder (optional)
-1 tbsp shredded organic parmesan (optional)

Serves 4-6 


1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees on convection.
2) Heat up 1 tbsp of the ghee in a cast iron skillet on the stove top over medium high heat.
3) Once the ghee is melted and the pan is hot, add in the sweet and russet potato cubes, sea salt, pepper, and chili powder (if you're using it). Cover and cook for about 10-12 minutes, stirring every so often until the potatoes soften.
3) Mix in the 2nd tbsp of ghee for about a minute until it is completely melted.
4) Mix in the arugula, sliced garlic, and tomato cubes so that everything is evenly dispersed.
5) Toss the skillet into the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until the tops of the potatoes begin to brown a bit. Sprinkle the parmesan over the entire skillet about 2 minutes before removing it from the oven (so at about 8-10 minutes depending on cook time). 
6) Let cool for about 5 minutes, serve, and enjoy!

I served mine alongside an egg and some sauteed veggies, but feel free to brunch as you please! The combination of the garlic ghee with both the sweet and russet potatoes is just perfect. Plus that added taste of the roasted tomato and fresh garlic just takes these potatoes to the next level. I'm dying to hear what you think in the comments below, so definitely let me know once you give them a try!
