My first swag was Make Ahead Breakfast Bowls – this was before I started Weight Watchers so I didn’t really care so much about the ingredients – just things that I liked and could make ahead.
I started with roasted potatoes – the key with roasting potatoes is to make them a uniform size so they cook evenly. I sprinkled on top some of the Potato Ole seasoning mix I made along with olive oil.
I had a package of pork sausage that I’d gotten for free last fall on a trip to Ryan Raised Farm that I decided to use.
I sauteed the pork sausage with a yellow pepper left in the fridge – I love sausage & peppers – they’re my favorite pizza toppings so of course they’ll be good for breakfast!
I also scrambled a batch of eggs – I used 7 eggs knowing I was making 5 bowls. Having a little more than 1 egg in each bowl seemed about right. I like my scrambled eggs pretty simple – eggs, a little milk, salt & pepper.
Once everything was together – I had bowls with all of the ingredients I prepped + cheese & salsa.
I had enough left over to try one for dinner on Sunday night. After all the prep – I just couldn’t wait until Monday morning!
The potatoes with their Potato Ole seasoning and the salsa really added a lot – love the juiciness of the salsa that it adds to the whole thing. The eggs stayed pretty fluffy as well even after a reheat.
These bowls were a great first try for make ahead breakfast and it was so great not having to think in the morning about what I was going to take for breakfast. I don’t know why but I just can’t eat before 830am – so eating at home is not an option. The whole week I had a great grab & go breakfast week!
