Breakfast For Dinner Bowl

Almost every night of the week we have a theme for dinner. But I always have troubles coming up with what to make for dinner on Wednesday nights because it doesn't have a theme. This week I decided that Wednesday nights from now on are going to be breakfast for dinner. I mean come on who doesn't love breakfast for dinner. ;)

This is our first Wednesday of doing this and I knocked it out of the park. This meal was so delicious and very filling. I love coming up with breakfast recipes so this should be fun. I will share as I keep creating. But here is what I got for you tonight.

A delicious breakfast bowl filled with turkey sausage, sweet potatoes, peppers, onions, eggs, avocados and tomatoes. :)

This recipes makes two very hearty servings. 

Ingredients: 

Turkey Sausage: 
1/2 pound Lean Ground Turkey
1 Teaspoon Coconut Sugar
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
1/2 Teaspoons Ground Sage
1/2 Teaspoons Ground Thyme
1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

Sweet Potatoes: 
1 Sweet Potato 
1 Sweet Onion
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil 
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Peppers: 
Red Pepper
1 Teaspoon Olive Oil
Sprinkle of Salt 

Other Ingredients: 
4 Eggs
Avocado
1 Tomato 
Spinach or Kale (optional) 

Directions:

Turkey: 
Mix turkey with all of the seasonings and let marinate for at least two hours.
Cook and crumble the turkey in a large skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 6 to 8 minutes.

Sweet Potatoes: 
Wash and scrub sweet potatoes thoroughly. Dry potatoes well with a towel or paper towel.
Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into 4 long strips. Chop each of the strips into small cubes. 
Chop onion into small cubes as well. 
Mix the sweet potato and onion with tablespoon of coconut oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Toss to coat.
Either bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crisped, flipping once halfway through to make sure that both sides get crispy. Or cook in a covered skillet for about 25 or until lightly browned. 

Pepper:
Saute pepper in a bit of olive oil until tender. 

Eggs: 
Prepare your eggs however you like them. I like to make them over easy so that they are all runny and delicious for this bowl. 

The Perfect Breakfast Bowl Assembly: 
My husband and I talked about the best way to assemble this bowl and we came up with the following. :)
1. Start by putting sweet potato and onion on the bottom.
2. Next put the peppers and tomato.
3. Followed by the turkey sausage. 
4. And of course the delicious eggs. 
5. Last by not least place the avocado on top. 

There you have it now give it a try and let me know what you think!

Enjoy!
