We’re not sure who invented the breakfast bowl, but it’s about time we thanked him or her. Profusely.
After all, there’s no easier way to make a sophisticated looking breakfast. And did we mention that it can take less time than brewing a pot of coffee?
The basic formula
First, put a few humble things into a bowl—maybe hot sautéed potatoes or hash, cooked rice or grits, sautéed greens, or even a bit of a leftover stir-fry or stew. Next, top it all with an egg or two, cooked your way. Then, you can give the whole thing an optional dash of some flavorful condiment—say, sriracha sauce, ketchup, or [insert your favorite secret sauce idea here].
Suddenly you have a nourishing, filling meal in a bowl that’s good enough for company. Bonus: Maybe you used up some leftovers, too!
