These Breakfast or Lunch Sausage Meal Prep Bowls are SUPER easy to prep and are perfect just about any meal of the day! Gluten & Dairy Free
Happy Monday internet friends. Did you watch the Super Bowl yesterday? What was your favorite thing you ate? I’m living vicariously through all of you since I’m doing a breastfeeding elimination diet to try and figure out KJs allergies and am basically living off of Sun Butter and Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (what $5.99 for a bag of chocolate chips? #100percentworthit.)
This meal isn’t the fanciest or the prettiest meal in the world, but it’s one of our favorites. Mr. Hungry takes this to work at least once a month and I eat it for breakfast about the same amount. I’ve shared it several times on my IG stories (a step by step is saved under the meal prep highlight) and you guys always ask for the “recipe,” so I’m sharing today!
This meal is 100% inspired by the breakfast sausage from Butcher Box which IS FREAKING DELICIOUS! It has just a few simple ingredients and no preservatives, it will change your world. Seriously, it will change your life, but you could also use any other kind of sausage. If you want to do chicken or turkey breakfast sausage you could do that too, you could even make your own. The world is your oyster.
I usually cook the zucchini in the super flavorful leftover fat from the pork sausage on the stove. If I’m making a double batch and don’t have a big enough pan then I’ll toss the zucchini in the leftover fat and throw it in the oven to roast it. Sometimes I sub other starch for the brown rice, I’ve done quinoa, wild rice, and potatoes, all were delicious!
As you can see from this super simple three-ingredient recipe, meal prep does not have to be complicated or boring. You can easily throw together simple ingredients in your fridge (often known as component meal prep) to create meals! Let me know if you try this one or some version of it!
