Make these healthy sausage breakfast bowls on the weekend for a fridge full of easy breakfasts throughout the week!
Ahhhh…there is something SO nice about getting out of town for the weekend.
Especially if it involves rooms full of food bloggers, amazing food, and people who ‘get’ what you do.
I have just returned from the Food Bloggers of Canada 2016 conference in Toronto and today I am either fighting some mild jet lag, or just recovering from the crazy amount of food I consumed this weekend.
Either way, I’m a day late with this post for you, but I’m here anyway, and I brought another handy make ahead breakfast recipe for us: these make ahead healthy sausage breakfast bowls!
This one’s for all you savory breakfast people. Turns out, that’s actually most of us!
I polled my Facebook group and an overwhelming number of people prefer a savory breakfast, which I was a little surprised to hear!
Anyway. Savory breakfast. Here we are.
These breakfast bowls (for lack of a better way to describe them), contain turkey sausage and roasted veggies. For these photos, I used potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and threw in some red onion for the last 15 minutes.
I tossed the veggies in some maple syrup and cinnamon which gives this meal a really cool sweet/savory flavor. Not feeling a sweet/savory flavor in your breakfast? Swap with some cajun seasoning. Also very delish!
I decided to roast the sausage while I roasted the veggies, but I think I prefer the texture of barbecued sausages. So if you can still get out there and grill, do that! Fewer dishes and a great texture.
These breakfast bowls are great. You just heat them gently in the morning, and eat them right up. They are so tasty, have a good helping of veggies, and they will keep you full!
I hate getting hangry mid-morning.
I know when I eat a tasty breakfast that actually fills me up, I know I start my day off on a much better note. So let’s hope this means a happily productive day for us.
Happy Tuesday, friends! Stay tuned for a DELISH slow cooker recipe coming your way on Thursday!

Cook time is for the (small) breakfast sausages. If you use larger sausages you will definitely need to increase the cook time.
