Cauliflower Grits and Sausage Breakfast Bowl

Give me breakfast food all day, everyday. I am the type of gal that could live on this beautiful Cauliflower Grits and Sausage Breakfast Bowl. Breakfast food is my all time favorite and I can eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This bowl is also Whole30, Keto and Paleo compliant.

This bowl is filled with creamy cauliflower grits, grass fed sausage patties, broccolini, a runny fried egg and drizzled with olive oil. To top it off, I sprinkiled with red pepper flakes. The best part of this meal is when you cut into that yummy runny egg and the yolk runs into the creamy cauliflower grits and sausage. Y’all, it is so darn tasty!

Sausage and Cauliflower Grits Breakfast Bowl

What I love most about this breakfast bowl, is it is totally versatile. For example, you can switch out the sausage for bacon or another protein along with adding asparagus or another veggie of choice. The possibilities are really endless.

Instructions

Sausage Patties & Fried Eggs:

  1. In a large pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat.

  3. Transfer the sausage into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature is 160F
  4. Once the sausage is cooked, crack each egg into the pan and cook until desired doneness. 

Cauliflower Mash:

  1. Bring 1 head of cauliflower to a boil and cook for 10 mins or steam 2 bags of cauliflower rice in the microwave per instructions on the package.
  2. Drain liquid from the cauliflower and add to the food processor with garlic powder, chives, ghee, coconut milk, salt and pepper.
  3. Blend together until smooth and top with fresh chives. Make sure NOT over blend or it will turn into a soupy puree.
  4. Transfer the cauliflower mash to a bowl and top with ghee, salt, pepper and chives.

Broccolini:

  2. Add broccolini, toss frequently until browned and bright green, about 5 minutes.

Build Your Bowl:

  1. Place a big scoop of the cauliflower grits into each bowl along with the broccolini and the sausage patties. Place the fried egg over the grits and drizzle with additional olive oil and garnish with red pepper flakes.
