Method: Oven/Stovetop
Servings: 2 bowls

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 strips of bacon chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 hash brown patties Optional
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • Optional: salsa or hot sauce for serving

Instructions

  • Cook Bacon: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • 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.
  • Scramble Eggs: In a bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them together until well combined—season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the beaten 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.
  • Assemble Bowls: Divide the scrambled eggs evenly between two bowls. Top each bowl with the cooked chopped bacon.
  • 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.
  • Top with salsa or hot sauce on the side for extra flavor.

Notes

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.
