Enjoy an easy and customizable first meal of the day with breakfasts bowls topped with sausage, vegetables, eggs and anything else you like.
I’ve come to find that I love the casual feel of serving breakfast bowls. Like rice bowls for dinner they make an easy meal that folks can customize however they like. You can experiment with grains and vegetables, eggs and meats, cheese, and whatever sauces you like.
The resulting breakfast bowls are filling and hearty, making a perfect start to the day. And you know what? You could easily serve this breakfast for dinner.
One thing I really love about this particular combination is the sausage. My local Sprouts sells bulk sausage in a number of variations: breakfast, hot Italian, sweet Italian, etc. Buy however much you like and form it into small balls. Bake until cooked through and serve atop a bowl full of goodies.
If you’re going strict Whole 30, you’ll want to make sure that your sausage has no sweetener. Many do. If you can’t find a commercial brand, you can make this turkey sausage mixture instead.
Like rice bowls, these breakfast bowls can be a great vehicle for using up any leftovers you have from the night before: grilled vegetables, baked potatoes, rice pilaf, cauliflower rice. Let you imagination go wild. Breakfast will be delicious.
Egg and Sausage Breakfast Bowls
- 1 lb bulk breakfast sausage or make your own
- 1 tbsp olive oil or butter
- 2 cup roasted vegetables such as onions, peppers, mushrooms, and potatoes
- black pepper
- 4 to 8 egg
- 4 cup rice (cooked) for serving cauliflower rice or other quick-cooking grain, if you prefer
- sauces for topping the breakfast bowls such as sriracha, hot pepper sauce, or guacamole
- Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Form the sausage into small, walnut-sized balls. Lay on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until done.
- Heat one to two tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Add the vegetables, and cook stirring, until tender, about 20 minutes for potatoes, less time for other vegetables. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Once they are tender, remove them to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
- Fry or scramble the eggs, season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Serve the sausage, vegetables, and eggs with hot cooked rice or other grain and whatever sauces you like.
