What Makes This Recipe Great

This hearty Breakfast Bowl Recipe is packed with creamy, scrambled eggs, chopped bacon, veggies, and cheese, then topped with avocado, hash browns, and Greek yogurt. A delicious, filling, protein-packed breakfast for two! 

What I love about this recipe is it’s easy to portion these bowls into meal prep containers and store them in the fridge for weekday breakfasts, or freeze them for later use. Simply reheat in the microwave, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy! Plus, each bowl has 35 grams of protein, which is a great way to fuel up for a busy day!

You can easily customize these easy breakfast bowls to your liking– swap the Greek yogurt for sour cream, omit the cheese, change up the protein, or add additional veggies of your choice. Think of your favorite contents of breakfast burritos turned into a bowl for busy mornings or weekends.

Ingredient Notes

  • large eggs

  • chopped tomatoes
  • green onions
  • shredded cheddar cheese blend
  • fresh cilantro

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Cook Bacon: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Cook Hash Browns: Add your hash brown patties to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake according to package instructions. Otherwise, you can add them to your air fryer in a single layer and cook at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. 
  3. Scramble Eggs: In a small bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them together until well combined—season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet. Gently scramble the eggs with a spatula, stirring occasionally until they are cooked to your desired consistency. This usually takes about 2-3 minutes. Add butter if desired.
  4. Assemble Bowls: Divide the scrambled eggs evenly between two bowls. Top each bowl with the cooked chopped bacon and hashbrown patties (if using).
  5. Add the sliced avocado on top of the eggs and bacon. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt and sprinkle with sliced green onions, chopped tomatoes, and chopped cilantro.
  6. Top with salsa or hot sauce on the side for extra flavor.

Mac’s Pro Tips

Expert Tips

  • Alternative Protein: Feel free to substitute pork sausage or turkey sausage instead of bacon. You can also try chorizo–either regular or soy chorizo will work. 

Serving Tips

  • Serve your bowls topped with avocado, green onions, sour cream, or Greek yogurt and your favorite salsa of choice. You can serve by themselves or with a side of fresh fruit. 

Storage Tips

  • For make-ahead breakfast bowls, assemble your bowls (without toppings) in meal prep containers. Add the toppings to their own individual containers for quick access. Reheat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy super quick breakfasts on the go.
