Eggy, Nutty, Fruity Breakfast Bowls!

Warning: do not proceed to read this blog if you are the least bit hungry. We guarantee just talking about these scrummy breakfast bowls will give you the growls and stimulate your saliva glands! That’s right, it’s time to swap the cereal in your bowl for another morning taste treat, delish and complete. Already had your breakfast? Then you might be safe — read on!

Savory Breakfast in a Bowl

If you’ve never had a Cowboy Breakfast Bowl, don’t waste another minute. This combination of bacon, potatoes, sliced green onions, garlic, cheese, eggs and avocados is hard to beat. The Delish video really makes your mouth water as you watch the step-by-step. And while it’s not quite as easy as the pour-cereal-add-milk routine, it sure hits the spot and stays put!

Blogger Sylvia from Feasting at Home presents another avocado-add-in breakfast bowl, Mexican style. With roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, turkey or vegan chorizo, avocado, cilantro and an egg, this hearty breakfast bowl is full of flavor and on the light side. Sylvia’s a fan of bowl dishes, by the way, and you’ll find lots of recipes here for every meal!

For a savory twist on the everyday oatmeal, try this protein-packed Asian-inspired bowl from the Food Network for breakfast. Using chicken broth infuses the oats with a salty flavor perfect for a sunny-side-up egg with scallions, sesame seeds, seaweed strips and a special hot pepper and cream cheese sauce!

Quinoa and pesto are a great combination for a breakfast bowl with eggs and avocado and create a hearty beginning for those mornings you wake up ravenous and craving more than a smoothie. The kale basil pesto recipe from blogger Alyssa at Simply Quinoa uses basil, pine nuts, lemon juice, garlic, hemp seeds and olive oil, plus a little salt and pepper. 

Freezable Breakfast Bowls

This recipe from Housewife How Tos was inspired by Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls. Author and blogger Katie Berry used a meal prep strategy to fry the sausage and bacon, then the potatoes and finally the scrambled eggs. The secret to making this batch of goodness freezable is to let the eggs cool thoroughly and then mix and spread everything, including sharp shredded cheddar, onto a baking sheet and pop it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Scoop it into resealable bags for the freezer and you can have breakfast in minutes any morning of the week.

Fruit and Nuts

Toasted Oatmeal with Strawberry Chia Jam and Coconut Whipped Cream takes the mush out of this healthy breakfast food. Toasting oatmeal in coconut oil or butter in a large skillet — before adding any liquid — keeps it chewy instead of mushy. Toasting also retains the nutty flavor oatmeal is supposed to have. Blogger Kate at Cookie and Kate makes her own jam which takes the longest (30 minutes) and says the secret to the whipped cream is letting the full fat coconut milk chill at least 10 hours.

Chia Pudding and fruit is another Food Network breakfast bowl and uses coconut milk, maple syrup and marinated chia seeds for a sweet and softened super-food that reminds us of tapioca. Top your fiber-rich breakfast bowl with tropical fruits like pineapple and kiwi, shredded coconut and nuts for a morning meal rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Elena at As Easy as Apple Pie makes her Apple Pie Overnight Oats in a mason jar, but the bowl theme still applies! With oats, milk, applesauce, maple syrup and cinnamon, plus three garnishes (apples, walnuts and cinnamon), she mixes everything together, gives the jar a good shake and pops it in the fridge overnight. The diced apple, chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon are the perfect toppings for a chill morning meal.
