As February comes to a close, and we hit March (and spring, can you tell I’m ready for spring?) head on, it’s time to close out my weekly Buddha Bowls!
Late in January I decided to make one Buddha bowl recipe weekly through February because I became slightly addicted to the idea after having a delicious bowl on our recent family Sedona trip. If you missed my first Buddha bowl post then you should know, Buddha bowls basically have no rules. Best recipe ever, right?
When making a Buddha bowl, the goal is to put as much delicious food and flavor as possible into a heaping pile in a bowl to resemble a Buddha belly—that’s it! I think Buddha bowls are the perfect weeknight dinner, a great way to make use of left overs, a nice lunch option and now a hearty breakfast! All of the best breakfast foods served over the top of my perfect roasted sweet potatoes—-DROOL.
There are so many options when it comes to Buddha bowls, and through this month I explored a ton! I hope you enjoyed this segment, and I’m looking forward to hitting the grill and diving into warmer weather.
Enjoy, and eat your Hartt out!
- ½ pound Ground Sage Sausage
- ½ pound thick cut bacon
- 1 yellow bell pepper, julienned
- 1 cup mushrooms
- 2 cups Perfect Roasted Sweet Potatoes (link in post)
- 2 eggs, fried
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Toppings: avocado and green onion
- Add ground sage sausage to a large skillet on high heat. Use a spatula to break up the meat as it browns. Cook down into crumbles, 5-6 minutes. Drain additional fat and set cooked sausage aside.
- Place bacon on a non stick, ungreased baking sheet evenly spread out. Preheat your oven to 350 and add your bacon into the cold oven. Cook bacon 15-20 minutes until slightly crispy. Remove bacon and set onto a paper towel to absorb some of the additional grease. When cooled, chop and set aside.
- Add bell peppers and mushrooms to the same skillet you cooked the sausage in, no need to wash. Season with salt and pepper to taste and brown side by side or mix if desired. Brown for 5-6 minutes while bacon is cooking, remove from pan and set aside.
- Begin to build bowls starting with perfect roasted sweet potatoes. Top with bacon, sausage, peppers, and mushrooms. Top with fried eggs at desired done-ness. Garnish with avocado and chopped green onion if desired.
