I love starting the day with a hearty, healthy, protein-packed breakfast. Making Sheet Pan Breakfast Bowls is easy, creates few dishes and the bowls are fun to customize with toppings!
Eggs for Breakfast
My whole family enjoys eggs often for breakfast. My husband prefers over-easy eggs, but our daughters and I all LOVE scrambled eggs! And I'm SO glad our kids like eggs because they are truly a nutritional powerhouse for those of every age!
Eggs are a super easy, inexpensive ingredient that'll help jumpstart your day with a nutrient-rich meal. Not only are eggs a protein powerhouse, they also contain vitamins and minerals that help with muscle and bone health, eye health and cognitive function.
Eggs as a First Food for Babies
As many of you may know, we became a family of five just a couple months ago. Though we still have a few months before we introduce solids to our little guy, I can promise you that eggs will be one of his very first foods. Why?
The U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommends eggs as an important first food in the first 24 months, due to the excellent source of choline in eggs, which is essential for brain development.
Not only that, but introducing eggs at an early age may also reduce the risk of a child developing an egg allergy. And let's be honest, I'd hate for my kids to not be able to enjoy a slice of birthday due to an egg allergy....because we all know they're likely to have a persistent sweet tooth, just like their mama! 🙂
How to Make Sheet Pan Breakfast Bowls
One of the many things I love about this recipe is the fact that the sweet potatoes, sausage and eggs are all cooked at the same time on one sheet pan! Let me show you how.
First, you'll peel and cube the sweet potatoes and toss them with olive oil and seasoning. The sweet potatoes are then placed on the sheet pan.
Next, you'll cut the sausage links into bite-sized pieces. They will go on the opposite end of the sheet pan to the sweet potatoes.
Then you'll combine the eggs, milk, seasonings and the optional red pepper. Once it's whisked together, you'll pour into a greased pan. This will go in the center of the sheet pan.
Below is a photo of what it should look like when it's ready to go into the oven!
Once the eggs, sausage and sweet potatoes are all cooked, it's time to build your breakfast bowls. Layer individual bowls with sweet potatoes, sausage and eggs.
Then, top as desired! I like to add shredded cheese, a dollop of plain Greek yogurt (a healthy alternative to sour cream), avocado pieces, green onions and hot sauce!
Breakfast Meal Prep
Love enjoying a hot breakfast, but don't have the time during the week? These breakfast bowls make it easy!! I like to use glass bowls with lids or glass jars (see photo below) to use these as a meal prep option. Simply fill the jars, cover and refrigerate. When it's time for breakfast, simply pop one in the microwave, top as desired and enjoy!
