Italian Breakfast Bowl
A simple Italian Breakfast Bowl filled with savory Italian sausage, nutty parmesan cheese, fluffy eggs, earthy asparagus, creamy golden potatoes and fresh tomatoes, all topped with basil ribbons.
Breakfast bowls are a delicious, nutritious, versatile and completely satisfying breakfast. Start with a base of scrambled eggs and go from there – the options seem endless. Between all the meats, veggies, potatoes, cheeses and herbs available you could eat a breakfast bowl every day and never make the same bowl.
While I usually opt for a Mexican themed breakfast bowl — with cilantro, tomatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, jack cheese and bacon — my new favorite is this Italian Breakfast Bowl I created the other week.
I was inspired by the local grown asparagus I found at the market. Roasted asparagus is one of my favorite veggies. And I enjoy it most with breakfast. Have you every eaten asparagus eggs Benedict. It’s amazing! The creamy and tangy hollandaise sauce and the poached egg complement the asparagus so well.
With that in mind, I made this Italian Breakfast Bowl. And guys, if you haven’t tried asparagus for breakfast, you must!
I roasted the seasoned asparagus and these creamy golden baby potatoes in extra virgin olive oil that’s enhanced with parmesan cheese and basil. I found it at Costco. It’s perfect for roasting veggies or making salad dressing.
(Alternatively, add dried basil and parmesan cheese to the asparagus.)
I scrambled mild Italian sausage but feel free to use hot Italian sausage if you like things spicy. My little ones aren’t fans of too much spice.
Finally, I scrambled eggs and assembled the bowls.
To assemble the bowls:
Place the potatoes, asparagus and eggs side by side in a shallow bowl. Top with finely grated parmesan cheese, diced tomatoes and fresh basil.
The savory sausage, salty cheese and earthy roasted veggies complement each other so well. And the fresh tomatoes and basil ribbons add the perfect finishing touch!
I love this breakfast bowls because they’re healthy and tasty. They’re perfect if you’re on a low carb, paleo, keto or primal diet. Plus, they’re versatile, so if one of my ingredients doesn’t fit your dietary needs, just switch it up. 🙂
One final note.
If you like to meal prep, this Italian Breakfast Bowl is for you. Make all the ingredients ahead on Sunday (or your day off) keep in separate containers and assemble the bowl each morning.
Hope you enjoy! 🙂
