Southwestern Breakfast Bowls


As a mom, I love simple breakfasts. The faster, the better.

Kid breakfasts are cool and all, but guys, sometimes, mama needs something a little more grown-up.

And I don’t know if it’s really lame that I’m calling a dish with bell peppers in it “grown up” or not, but in our family, I’m the only one who eats them, so yeah.

But to me, there’s something really special about the mix of potatoes, onions, and those evil little bell peppers that nobody else in my family will touch.

It hits the taste buds just right.

So some mornings, I get up, and I make a Southwestern Breakfast bowl just for me. I tell the kids it’s “soul food”, and they wrinkle their noses and walk away.

But sometimes I’m nice and make a batch without the peppers for them.

Because we may not all love peppers, but we ALL love fried potatoes and sausage topped with a just-right fried egg – the kids where you break the yolk, and it’s thick, so it slowly runs out into the potato bowl.

Soooo satisfying.

It’s a nice break from the kids’ favorite standbys of steel-cut oatmeal, breakfast popsicles, and gluten-free muffins – even if they disagree. 😉
