Make Ahead Breakfast Bowl Recipe
What do you do when you have to be gone all weekend but want to make sure your family is well fed? You do make ahead meals, that’s what. We had several places to be for the long weekend and I made hearty Breakfast Bowls along with packing lunch boxes full of healthy snacks. They not only tasted great, but were healthier than eating out, and less expensive. Winning all around!

Make-Ahead Breakfast Bowls will power you through your morning. This vegetarian and gluten-free breakfast recipe is also freezer-friendly!

Rise and shine, it’s breakfast time!
A few weeks ago I mentioned I’ve been making a real effort to eat a proper breakfast each morning and it’s been working wonders for my energy levels. A filling meal with protein, fat, and carbohydrates first thing in the ay em completely sets the tone for a productive day, and if I skip breakfast it feels as though there’s a 10 pound weight on my head. Like a veil of fog is clouding my vision and my face weighs like, 100 pounds. Please tell me you can relate?
Weird facial issues aside, let’s be honest, making breakfast a priority is difficult in the mornings. Inevitably the dishwasher needs to be emptied, Lincoln’s school snack needs packed and he of course needs a healthy breakfast, brewing coffee is a must, and finally it’s vitamins for all. Before long it’s time to load up the car and head out to school, or scoot up to my office for the day. All that to say, quick and easy breakfasts are the name of the game lately and these Breakfast Bowls are not only killing it in the delicious department, but they’re make ahead (reheat in ONE minute!) and freezer-friendly too.
Have you ever heard the saying “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”? I’m digging it. Well, usually breakfast and dinner are both eaten like I’m the Queen of England, but to me a healthy breakfast makes a big difference in how my day goes.
Make-Ahead Breakfast Bowls contain a hearty combination of homemade Potatoes o’ Brien (potatoes with green pepper and onion, y’all, which smell UNBELIEVABLE while roasting!) silky scrambled eggs, freshly shredded cheese, and spicy green onions which are complimented by my favorite egg pairing – tortilla chips and salsa – then served up hot and fresh, or divvied up into individual sized containers to store in the refrigerator or freezer to grab, reheat, and go, all week long. I’ve been making a batch of Breakfast Bowls on Sundays then reheating in the microwave during crazy weekday mornings. They’re super filling and, while I do adore a breakfast of berries, a banana, and homemade walnut butter, I’ll hardly ever turn down something hot and hearty – especially in this weather!
Cajun Style Hash
I created these bowls to be vegetarian, but if you’d like a little more protein, go ahead and brown up 3/4lb breakfast sausage or bacon and add them to the bowls. Dice or mash up fresh avocado to add more healthy and satisfying fats to the bowl, and/or snag a tortilla and create your own breakfast burrito with the ingredients. Now go forth, and effortlessly feast on breakfast – as they say, clear eyes, full belly, can’t lose! (Or something like that…)
How to Make Make-Ahead Breakfast Bowls:
Start by chopping 2lb Yukon Gold potatoes, 1 green bell pepper, and 1 large onion into 1″ cubes then adding them to a large sheet pan.
Drizzle the vegetables with extra virgin olive oil then sprinkle on a generous amount of homemade seasoned salt, and pepper. Toss with your hands to evenly coat the vegetables, then transfer half to another sheet pan. This ensures that there’s enough room for the vegetables to roast and get nice and caramelized vs steaming from being crammed together on one sheet pan.
Roast both pans for 30-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and tender, stirring the vegetables and rotating the pans halfway through. Psst: If you’re lining your pan with foil, be sure to spray them with nonstick spray first – it really makes a difference!
Meanwhile, whisk 12 large eggs with salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Spray a large skillet over medium heat with nonstick spray then add the eggs and scramble until they’re barely cooked through – they should still be a little silky and glossy.
Last stop – assembly! Pile the potatoes and eggs into bowls then top with freshly shredded cheese and chopped green onions. Like I said, I love eggs with tortilla chips and salsa, so I tucked those into my breakfast bowls before eating too. A diced avocado or guacamole would be Heavenly as well!
How much protein for breakfast?
We’ve all heard about the importance of starting off the day with a good breakfast. But why is that? And does it matter what you eat for breakfast? The short answer is yes! After a night’s sleep, it’s important to get your metabolism revving again to give you energy as you start your day. The time you eat breakfast is up to you – yet studies show that starting your day with a protein-dense breakfast actually helps you eat less throughout the day, and feel full longer. Plus you gain better, sharper focus throughout the day.
Typical adults needs 15+ grams
For the typical adult, 15-25 grams of protein is the general recommendation for breakfast. If you want to calculate how much protein you need every day, then multiply your body weight in kilograms by 0.8 grams (or .36 grams for every pound of body weight). This number will of course change according to your specific needs and activity level.
This healthy breakfast bowl gives you 15 grams of protein thanks to a big boost from the tofu scramble. If you’ve never had tofu scramble before, or if you aren’t usually a fan of tofu, I implore you to give it a try! It’s amazing how the texture + flavor combo mimics eggs. And of course, if you prefer, you can totally substitute eggs for the tofu scramble. (You’ve gotta make it work for you!)

Strawberry Nectarine Açai Bowl
Recipe By: BreakfastCriminals
If you haven&rsquot made acai (ah-sigh-EE) a staple in your diet yet, consider this: The grape-like fruit from South America is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, healthy fats, and vitamins. Pick up a smoothie pulp or dried powder in your supermarket&rsquos freezer section to add to your breakfast blend.

How to make this breakfast oatmeal bowl
Is Oatmeal good to eat for breakfast?
Oatmeal can be a great healthy breakfast staple. Everything in moderation. There has been a debate that oatmeal may make you gain weight. If you consume Oatmeal in small portions you will be perfectly fine. In Fact in helps with weight loss and a great option for diabetics because it takes longer to digest and thus preventing a spike in their blood sugar. Enjoy an oatmeal breakfast especially if you have any gluten allergies.
What kind of Oatmeal is Healthiest?
There are 3 types of oats to look for that are readily available in stores. Oat Groats, Steel cut oats, Stoneground oats, Rolled Oats, Quick Oats, and Instant oats. The last 3 kids are what are most often used because they are easiest to cook.
Without going into great detail, Rolled oats are most commonly used even though it&rsquos not the healthiest but healthier than quick oats and instant oats. Quick oats are a bit processed and rolled thinner so they can cook faster. Whereas the instant oats are the most processed. I used rolled oats in this oatmeal breakfast bowl recipe.

To boost the sweet factor even more, the recipe calls for mango, berries and a banana. Photo and recipe: Ksenia Avdulova / Breakfast Criminals
2. Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl
You don’t always have to resort to an omelet to sneak in some morning veggies. The surprise ingredient in this antioxidant-rich bowl: frozen zucchini. The dish also features spirulina, chia seeds, coconut milk and cashew butter to give it that creamy texture. Because zucchini is 70% water, it’s super hydrating and it’s packed with fiber to keep you full. Spirulina is a blue-green microalgae that many vegetarians and vegans eat for its plant-based protein, B vitamins, iron and selenium. Top your bowl with goji berries, hemp seeds, cacao nibs and fresh fruit for maximum nutrition and a touch of sweetness. Photo and recipe: McKel Hill / Nutrition Stripped

Photo and recipe: Lindsay Ostrom / Pinch of Yum
5. Golden Milk Oatmeal With Pepita Brittle
Turmeric is definitely having a moment in the nutrition world. This super spice takes the gold for its anti-inflammatory benefits.

Breakfast and brunch don’t have to center around eggs, grains or smoothies. Shredded golden potatoes and mixed greens fill this hearty bowl, smothered in a heavenly pesto. A health-boosting combination of herbs, including basil, parsley and cilantro, make the deliciously flavorful sauce. Instead of typical pork bacon, this recipe calls for coconut bacon, made with coconut flakes, extra-virgin olive oil, tamari, maple syrup and smoked paprika. Photo and recipe: Sarah / Well and Full
10. Blueberry Buckwheat Breakfast Pudding
Soaking buckwheat overnight softens it up and turns it into a creamy morning treat. The proof is in this delicious pudding, which also features homemade blueberry puree. Simply blend two cups of blueberries with a tablespoon or two of maple syrup or honey until it becomes syrup. Mixing a banana with the buckwheat pudding makes it extra creamy and gooey. Squeeze some lemon juice to round out the sweetness. Photo and recipe: Renee Blair / Life by Daily Burn
11. Savory Breakfast Quinoa Bowl Recipe
Swapping quinoa for oatmeal gives this dish a plant-based protein boost and more fiber.

Farmers Market Breakfast Bowls
“What I want to see is a breakfast that’s half vegetables and contains some protein and healthy fat,” says Nasar. That trifecta will help regulate your body’s blood sugar response. She also encourages clients to expand their views of breakfast and simply see it as another healthy meal you eat in the morning. That could help if you’ve avoided adding vegetables to breakfast in the past. This breakfast bowl from Love & Lemons has a base of carrot rice, salad greens, beets, radishes, and tomatoes, all topped with an herby Greek yogurt sauce. Per serving (half of the recipe with one-quarter cup of dressing), there are 217 calories, 13 grams g of fat, 17 g of carbs, and 10 g of protein.
