I almost feel silly for posting the “recipe” for this healthy breakfast bowl because I’m pretty sure anyone could come up with their own version using whatever ingredients they choose! It is our favorite quick and easy meal that we enjoy for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love that it only takes about 10 minutes to make and when Dave and I are really trying to eat healthy this is one of our favorite meal options.
Here is what we use:
- Turkey or chicken sausage – I love Amy Lu’s Apple and Gouda chicken sausage or Trader Joe’s Spicy Italian chicken sausage.
- Roasted sweet potato
- 1 Egg
- Salt, pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes
*honestly though, add whatever you want! Sometimes we add jalapeño, red peppers or black beans. The options are endless
Here’s what you do:
I typically roast a huge batch of sweet potatoes on Mondays to use throughout the week in salads, these bowls or to give to Charlie for his meals. To roast I lay them evenly on a baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 25 mins at 400 degrees or until it looks done! The chicken sausage is pre-cooked so I cut it up and put it on a skillet to brown. Once it is browned I add the sweet potato and a handful of spinach. I let everything heat through until the spinach has wilted. I top with a little salt and pepper to season and set this aside! In another pan (or just throw the hash in a bowl and use the same pan), I fry an egg! Top your hash with the egg and season with cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes – or skip if you prefer less heat. Add some avocado on top and enjoy!
Charlie loves this meal too and I’ll crack an egg into the hash and scramble the egg with everything. I’ll also add some cheddar cheese to his! It’s the easiest meal and it can always be made with random stuff in your fridge.
