The Sportsman's Breakfast

The Sportsman’s Breakfast is one of the healthiest meals on my entire blog. It’s packed full of protein and lots of other essential vitamins. It’s the perfect way to start the day.

This dish is so easy to make and best of all, it’s diet-friendly. Can you believe it only has 238 calories per serving, plus it’s loaded with vitamins? The famous McDonald’s steak, egg, and cheese biscuit will hit you with 520 calories and it’s loaded with fat and carbs, and it isn’t loaded with vitamins. You’ll feel guilty if you eat that!

The Sportsman’s Breakfast is the perfect diet food–it will fill you up quickly and keep you full for hours and you won’t feel guilty. You’ll feel proud! You can make this dish faster than you can drive and wait for takeout, so what are you waiting for?

The Sportsman’s Breakfast


  • 1 cup of thinly sliced deer sweet meat/tenderloin
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of whole milk
  • 1/4 onion - diced
  • 1/4 green bell pepper - diced
  • 1 cup broccoli - slightly chopped
  • 1 cup of mixed salad
  • 3/4 cup of salsa
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil for frying


  1. Prepare the sweet meat/tenderloin by removing everything that isn't beautiful red meat. Then thinly slice the meat and dash it with salt and black pepper.
  2. Preheat a pan to medium-high heat and add a dash of olive oil. Once the pan is nice and hot, add the sweet meat. Stir or flip the meat often until it's done and lightly browned. This should only take a few minutes.
  3. Next, dice the onions and peppers and chop the broccoli into smaller pieces and add it to a bowl, along with a cup of salad. Then in a separate bowl measure out the salsa. Set all of this to the side for later.
  4. Preheat a frying pan to 250 or medium heat and add a dash of olive oil. Crack eight eggs into a large bowl. Add milk and a dash of salt and pepper and beat together.
  5. Add cooking spray or a dash of olive oil to the pan once it's preheated. Add the eggs and scramble until they are almost completely done and then turn the heat down to 175 or low.
  6. Next, pour the bowl of veggies in on top of the eggs and toss around. Let that cook for about 5 minutes--stirring occasionally.
  7. Then add the salsa and toss it to cover the egg mixture well. Let that cook for another 5 minutes and then add the fried deer sweet meat to the pan and toss it about and turn the heat off. It's done.

This goes great with toast or biscuits, but most of the time we eat it just as it is–with no sides. This not only is good for breakfast, but it’s good for lunch, dinner, or whenever the urge strikes–even at 3 am!
