My Freezer Friendly Breakfast Bowls


can remember when breakfast bowls became a new trend. You could find them everywhere... in all the fast-food places and the freezer aisle at the grocery store. Well, I've been making them for years just like my Mom did when we were growing up. She would start off making scrambled eggs and then add whatever meat she had in the fridge.  Then she would add some potatoes and melt cheese on the top.   













Don’t waste your money on buying those pre-made breakfast bowls from the freezer aisle at the grocery store!  You will save so much money by making them yourself…and you’ll love how easy they are to put together!  I like to make them ahead and freeze them for a quick on-the-go-breakfast throughout the week. 


My Freezer Friendly Breakfast Bowls 


8 Large Eggs

1/4 cup Milk

1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

½ cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

½ bag of frozen Tater Tots

8 pre-cooked sausage patties or links

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper


Add the oil and butter to a medium skillet and turn the temp to medium high.  After butter and oil are melted, add the Tater Tots.  Allow them to brown on one side before turning them over with a spatula.  Then brown the other side until crisp and golden. Set aside.















In another skillet, heat the sausage links or patties for a few minutes until they are heated through.  Slice into small bite sized pieces. Set aside.













In a medium size bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. 


















Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray, add two tablespoons of butter, and scramble the eggs in the pan over medium high heat until set.












Evenly divide the scrambled eggs, sausage, both cheeses, Tator Tots into 4 bowls.  Sprinkle more cheese on top and place in microwave for less than one minute or until cheese has melted.












Recipe Notes

These bowls are best served fresh but you can refrigerate the ingredients in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Assemble the bowls when you are ready to enjoy them! 












There are a couple of 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 use diced ham instead of sausage. Just warm the in the skillet with the eggs.













 I also make this without meat… just Tater Tots and eggs and cheese.
