Homemade Breakfast Bowls

Homemade Breakfast Bowls

Homemade breakfast bowls are a simple meal that can easily be made ahead and kept in the freezer for busy mornings. They also make a great breakfast for dinner.

Breakfast bowls are one of those meals that you can buy in the freezer section of your grocery store. They come ready to go in a microwavable bowl. But they are so easy to make at home and so much cheaper.

If you buy those breakfast bowls please try making your own. Really they are so much better. For the price of just a couple of those bowls in the store, you can easily make a whole bunch at home.

I have been making various versions of breakfast bowls for years. I love making them because they are easy to make, freeze well, and can be changed by using different types of meat and cheese.

Homemade Breakfast Bowls-

The version I am sharing today uses kielbasa type sausage and frozen cubed hash browns. My family prefers these with cheese, but if you are dairy free you can easily leave it out. I usually take out some for my dairy free daughter before I add the cheese.

When I make these I like to use a large electric skillet, but you can easily make these in smaller batches in a stove top skillet. (I have this Nonstick Electric Skillet and love it! It is a little bit expensive, but worth it. And that is an affiliate link.)

  1. Sounds like a silly question, but when frozen, do you defrost it in the microwave first and then heat it? How long do you normally do it for? My husband (who is GF) is often on-call for work and has to leave quickly without too much time to cook/eat, so something like this sounds great for him.

    • Not a silly question at all. We have done both defrosted and from frozen. If I freeze it in a large container, like enough for the whole family, I defrost it first. But in the small containers I only defrost when I remember that I need them. 🙂 Most of the time they are only partially defrosted or we reheat from frozen. If they are frozen we just stir them once or twice while heating them in the microwave. If defrosted they only take 2 minutes or less. Frozen usually takes 4 mins for us, but that might vary by microwave. We usually do about 2 mins, stir and then cook some more. I also have found them good for lunches for my husband. I take it out of the freezer in the morning and he takes it to work in his lunch. It is usually defrosted by lunch and he can just reheat it at work for lunch. I don’t know if that is an option for your husband but it works well too. I hope that helps.
