One of the keys to keeping our sanity during the work week is meal prep. This includes breakfast.
For a while I was making egg sandwiches, then switched to breakfast wraps, and am now obsessed with breakfast bowls ever since our Whole30 challenge. I can eat the same breakfast every day but I try to mix up the ingredients each week to give Matt some variety (although he could eat the same thing day after day too). I’ll rotate between sausage and bacon for the breakfast meat, sometimes add different roasted vegetables in and top the bowls off with fresh veggies (usually avocado if I have time to cut one up that morning). Anyway, we are hooked on these.
And if you’re looking for an easy breakfast you can make for the entire week, you need to try these.
Easy Whole30 Breakfast Bowls
- 12 slices bacon
- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt & pepper
For the Scrambled Eggs
- 12 large eggs
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Roast the sweet potatoes. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Spread sweet potatoes across a greased baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 25 minutes or until sweet potatoes are fork-tender. Remove from oven and set aside.
- Cook the bacon. Place bacon on a large baking sheet and bake in oven at 425 for 15 minutes or until bacon is brown and crispy.
- Caramelize the onions. Toss your onions in a skillet with some olive oil. Add a pinch of salt, and slow cook, stirring occasionally, lowering the heat if any onions begin to brown too quickly.
- Scramble the eggs. In a large bowl or stand mixer whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, salt, and pepper.
- Assemble the bowls. Layer your roasted potatoes, onion, bacon and eggs. Add any other toppings you wish!

looks great! how does it hold up in the Tupperware throughout the week? thanks!
Yum! These are my favorite too. I add a little cumin to my sweet potatoes sometimes and it's so good!
These look so good! I've been in a rut eating really sweet breakfasts (oatmeal with fruit, peanut butter and CHOCOLATE CHIPS. I'm pregnant but still!) so trying to get back to more nutritious and savory options. How do the scrambled eggs hold up? I've never really thought about scrambling eggs in advance but I guess why not!

This is a great idea! My hubby has the hardest time with breakfast – he just isn't a fan and nothing ever sounds good to him. I think this would be a great and healthy option, especially on those extra hurried mornings!

Meal prepped these on Sunday and love them!! I have eaten sweet potato only a few times so was interested how it would all taste but I am obsessed. Made these for my husband and I and we both agree these will be on repeat. Getting in to a groove of the working mom thing and these are a game changer so I actually have something delicious for breakfast in the morning (instead of a poptart in the car :))!
