Happy Monday friends! In preparation for the upcoming work week, I have whipped up these Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls for a quick meal in the morning. I am slow moving in the mornings, and even worse now that I’m waking up in complete darkness, so these have been a real life saver. They are also warm and comforting and taste like fall, all good things in my books!
Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the world who hates sweet things for breakfast. I do not like french toast or waffles. I’m not big on cereal or muffins. I’ll eat the occasional plate of pancakes, but only if there’s a heaping serving of bacon to go along with them. If I had my way, I would eat pizza or leftover pasta for breakfast. But apparently “grown-ups” don’t eat like that. So basically, I’m always trying to come up with new quick and easy breakfast ideas that do not resemble breakfast foods at all.
In reality, this could be made for any meal. Now that we’re doing crazy things like putting eggs on our burgers, the line between what constitutes a breakfast food versus a dinner food is blurry. I just think the name “Breakfast Bowls” has a nice ring to it. So go ahead and eat it any time of the day. I don’t care, I’m not your mother. I’m just advising you eat it.
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 lb of spicy Italian sausage
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 mozzarella cheese
- 1 egg per serving (4-6)
- 1. Preheat the oven to 425°F
- 2. Chop the sweet potatoes into bite size pieces. Toss them in olive oil, seasoning salt and pepper, and roast them for 30-40 minutes (until they're brown and slightly crispy on the outside).
- 3. When potatoes have about 10 minutes left, remove sausage from casing and brown it in a frying pan over medium heat, along with the garlic.
- 4. When sausage is cooked through, add the spinach. Stir until wilted.
- 5. Toss the sausage mixture with the sweet potato mixture and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
- 6. Fry an egg for each serving . Top each bowl with an egg. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and salt to taste. Enjoy!
- *Number of eggs will depend on serving sizes. I made mine into 5 medium servings, so I used 5 eggs.
