And while I plan to share several breakfast options, it would be a crime for me to start anywhere but with the beloved Breakfast Bowl! The tasty combo of meat, eggs and hash has become a staple in the foodie community as many a hot-foodie-spot have their own version of this here in Dallas. And, I mean, what's not to like?? Meat? Good. Eggs? Good. Sweet potato hash? Gooood.
So to take the restaurant lovin home, I started making my own Breakfast Bowl a few years ago and continue to adapt it to my meal preps. It's very straight forward, stores easily, and reheats beautifully.
THE Breakfast Bowl...
What I use:
- 2-3 sweet potatoes
- 1 pound of ground meat (bison, beef, turkey all work perfectly!)
- 12 eggs
- Seasonings of choice (I use FlavorGod "Everything Spicy")
- Avocado oil for cooking (You can sub whatever oil you are comfortable with. I would stick to Avocado or Coconut though as these cook at higher heats and retain nutrients better than olive oil)
- A few strips of bacon for garnish and some grease factor
Then What Happens:
- Wash and dry your sweet potatoes. Chop them into about 1/4"-1/2" sized cubes as evenly as possible to help them cook consistently. (you can peel but I prefer the texture of the skin on)
- Heat a large skillet about with some avocado oil coating the base over medium-high heat.
- Dump in your sweet potatoes and toss around in the oil. Simmer for a minute and then stir around before covering with a lid to allow to steam for a small bit.
- Coat in your seasonings (if you don't have Flavor God, fix that. In the meantime...garlic powder, smoked paprika, cumin and coriander make a great combo!)
- Continue to stir and simmer, turning the heat down after about 5 minutes of the potatoes steaming.
- Meanwhile get your meat cooking in another skillet. Coat the meat in same seasonings and brown meat completely.
- Once the meat is brown, dump into the sweet potato pan to mix up.
- I use the same meat pan and the left over juice to scramble up a dozen eggs
- Add seasonings to the eggs and cook completely, flipping around.
- Dump the eggs in and let everything simmer together on low for a couple minutes!
- The last thing I like to do is add in some crispy bacon all broken up in and over my divided up bowls. to add a little bacon grease and some crunch!
It truly is an simple prep and a great way to be prepared to not fall victim to "breakfast foods" and start the day out right!
