Breakfast Bowl Recipe {Freezer Meal}

Start out by preheating your oven to 450˚

Lightly coat 2 13×9 pans or 1 very large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Spread out a single layer of frozen potatoes on your pan(s). It is important that they are in one single layer, if the potatoesare too crowded they won’t get nice and crispy…and nobody likes soggy potatoes!

Evenly pour 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil over the potatoes and bake for 15 minutes. Turn and bake for another 7 minutes. Check the potatoes, if they aren’t crispy on ALL sides, stir and continue to bakein 5-minute intervals until they are crispy and deep golden brown. Once they are done, divide evenly into 12 disposable, microwave-safe bowls.

While the potatoes are baking heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage into the pan and cook until browned and cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes. Drain the sausage on a paper towel before dividing it into the bowls.

This time I used crumbled sausage in some bowls. They are looking great already! But, we’re not done yet!

Next, wipe out the pan you used for the sausage, we are going to use that same pan for the eggs… fewer dirty dishesmake me happy! Preheat thepan over medium heat.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until well blended. Pour eggs into the pan and immediately start scrapping and mixing the eggs in the pan for at least 20 seconds. This is an important step to get your eggs nice a fluffy. Let cook for about 30 seconds more and continue to scrape and turn eggs, making sure they don’t brown on the bottom. Cook the eggs until they are done, but not dry. Divide evenly among the bowls.

Once you have the potatoes, meat, and eggs divided into all 12 bowls, give them one turn with a spoon to lightly mix the ingredients together.

Top each bowl with shredded cheese, about 2 tablespoons.

Cover each bowl with Press ‘n’ Seal, making sure to press the plastic wrap lightly down around the food to get any air out before sealing around the edges. Then place in the freezer, that’s it… you’re done until you are ready to heat!

To heat, remove the bowl from the freezer and remove the plastic wrap. Heat in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until heated through. Now you have a delicious breakfast in less than 2 minutes! I hope you love this breakfast bowl recipe as much as we do!

There are a couple of variations to this recipe, you could use bacon instead of crumbled sausage. Just cook bacon, as usual, drain and crumble into bowls. Or you could even use link sausage instead of the crumbled sausage. Cook sausage links, as usual, drain and place 2 sausages in each bowl (but you would put them in the bowl last, on top of the cheese).

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 lb ground breakfast sausage (or 1 lb. bacon, or 24 sausage links)
  • 32 oz frozen Southern style hash browns diced
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • spray oil

Instructions

Prep Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees

  • Lightly coat 2 13×9 pans, or a very large cookie sheet, with cooking spray

  • If using 2 13×9 pans, divide the potatoes evenly between the 2, or spread them out onto a large cookie sheet. They should be one layer of potatoes. If there are too many in the pan they won't crisp evenly.

  • Evenly pour 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil over the potatoes.

  • Bake potatoes for 15 minutes. Turn and bake for another 7 minutes. Check the potatoes for even crispiness on all sides. If not, stir them around and continue to cook at 5 minute intervals until they are crispy and deep golden brown. Once done, divide evenly into bowls.

While Potatoes Bake:

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

  • Crumble sausage or other meat choice into pan and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  • Drain sausage on a paper towel before dividing into bowls evenly.

  • Wipe the grease out of the pan and use it for scrambling your eggs.

Eggs:

  • In a medium sized bowl whisk together eggs and ¼ cup of milk until well blended.

  • Return pan used to cook sausage to stove top over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil.

  • Pour eggs into pan, and immediately start scrapping and mixing the eggs in the pan for a good 20 seconds. (This will help you achieve a very fluffy scrambled egg.)

  • Let cook 30 seconds more, and continue to scrap and turn eggs. Just enough to ensure that they don’t brown on the bottom.

  • Cook your eggs until they are done, but not dry. Divide evenly among bowls.

To Finish Bowls:

  • Once the potatoes, sausage, and eggs are divided into your 12 bowls. Give each bowl one turnwith a spoon to lightly mix those ingredients together.

  • Top each bowl with about 2 tbsp. shredded cheddar cheese.

  • Cover each bowl with Press 'n' Seal, making sure to press the plastic wrap lightly down aroundthe food to get any air out before sealing the plastic wrap around the bowls edges. Freeze.

To Heat and Eat:

  • Remove bowl from freezer and remove the plastic wrap. Heat in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes, or at 30 second intervals until heated through. Enjoy!

Notes

If you are using bacon, cook, drain and crumble into bowls. For link sausage, cook, drain. Mix egg and potatoes first, top with cheese, then place 2 sausages in each bowl.
