Skip the breakfast bowls in the freezer section and make them homemade!
Homemade Breakfast Bowls
Whenever I see breakfast bowls on fast food menus, or in the freezer section of my grocery store, I think of how easy they are to make at home.
Breakfast bowls are very simple. They are basically just potatoes, eggs, sausage, and maybe a few vegetables all mixed together.
They are so easy to make at home!
I started making them at home for my family over ten years ago. It was back when they first became popular in the freezer section at stores. I knew that I could make them so much cheaper at home.
I started making my own homemade version and I have been making them ever since.
I first shared how I make them back in 2010. Last time I made them for restocking my freezer meals, I took new pictures so that I could update the images. They were in desperate need of an update.
In our family, these really are not breakfast bowls because we eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Make-Ahead and Freezer Friendly
My favorite thing about breakfast bowls is that I can make up a large batch at once and we can enjoy it for several meals. This mixture also freezes really well and makes for an easy breakfast on busy days.
I freeze them in small containers perfect for one serving. They work great for an easy breakfast or lunch.
I also love to freeze this in larger sizes as well for an easy breakfast for dinner.
This recipe makes a lot, so if you are just making it for one breakfast you will probably need to cut the recipe in half.
We serve them as is, with cheese, or on a tortilla for a breakfast burrito.
This really is more of a how-to or how I make them, not a recipe. I shared what I do, but you can easily change these up to make them just how you like them.
- 1 bag of frozen hashbrowns (cooked according to package directions)
- 1 dozen scrambled eggs, cooked

- Mix all the cooked ingredients together and stir in cheese.
- Serve immediately or reheat and serve.
- For freezer meals let cool completely and freeze in freezer containers. Take out and reheat as needed.
