Breakfast Bowl Recipe {Freezer Meal}

Start out by preheating your oven to 450˚

Lightly coat 2 13×9 pans or 1 very large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Spread out a single layer of frozen potatoes on your pan(s). It is important that they are in one single layer, if the potatoes are too crowded they won’t get nice and crispy…and nobody likes soggy potatoes!

Evenly pour 4 Tablespoons of vegetable oil over the potatoes and bake for 15 minutes. Turn and bake for another 7 minutes. Check the potatoes, if they aren’t crispy on ALL sides, stir and continue to bake in 5 minute intervals until they are crispy and deep golden brown. Once they are done, divide evenly into 12 disposable, microwave safe bowls.

While the potatoes are baking heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage into the pan and cook until browned and cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes. Drain the sausage on a paper towel before dividing into the bowls.

There are a couple variations to this recipe, you could use bacon instead of crumbled sausage. Just cook bacon as usual, drain and crumble into bowls. Or you could even use link sausage instead of the crumbled sausage. Cook sausage links as usual, drain and place 2 sausages in each bowl (but you would put them in the bowl last, on top of the cheese).

This time I used crumbled sausage in some bowls and bacon in the others, just to mix it up a little. They are looking great already! But, we’re not done yet!

Next, wipe out the pan you used for the sausage, we are going to use that same pan for the eggs…less dirty dishes makes me happy! Preheat the pan over medium heat.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until well blended. Pour eggs into the pan and immediately start scrapping and mixing the eggs in the pan for at least 20 seconds. This is an important step to get your eggs nice a fluffy. Let cook for about 30 seconds more and continue to scrape and turn eggs, making sure they don’t brown on the bottom. Cook the eggs until they are done, but not dry. Divide evenly among the bowls.

Once you have the potatoes, meat and eggs divided into all 12 bowls, give them one turn with a spoon to lightly mix the ingredients together.

  1. This recipe looks great but I’m trying to stay with low carb recipes. Can you suggest substitutes for the potatoes that will work?


  2. This looks amazing! I am all for a quick but hearty breakfast on the go! Thanks!

  3. This sounds great. Thanks for posting. It could be lightened up by using half egg whites instead of all eggs. Also, add in some veggies like onions, peppers, and /or broccoli, spinach, etc. If pressed for time frozen pre-mixed veggies could be used. 🙂

  4. Just wondering how the hash browns turn out after being in the freezer…? I’ve had breakfast bowls similar to this and the hash brown (patty) was awful once it was re heated. I wonder if using the diced hash browns would make a difference.


  5. These look delicious! i will have to try it soon

  6. Do we know how long these are good for in the freezer?

  8. Just made these! Thank you so much for the idea. These will be great for my husband as he rushes out the door for work. 🙂
