Keep reading and I’ll share some ways to speed up this recipe so that it is so easy to make you’ll wonder why you skipped breakfast at all.
Keto Breakfast Bowl
I don’t know about you, but breakfast is a meal that seems easier to skip on some days. This recipe comes together so easily that you can enjoy the first (and most important) meal of the day again.
This is a simple and filling recipe that works for all three meals. If you do happen to skip breakfast, just eat it for lunch! It also works for meal prep and you can eat it for dinner too.
It’s also a very versatile recipe too. Instead of bacon, use your favorite sausage. It also tastes really good with leftover shredded pork loin. I didn’t add any type of sauce to it, but you can add some cheese or even your favorite keto-friendly salsa.
Make-Ahead Keto Breakfast Bowl
This recipe is very meal-prep friendly. Pre-cook and crumble the bacon and then make it ahead with all of the other ingredients. Store this breakfast bowl in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
After about 3 days, the spinach will start to deteriorate so I really suggest eating it within that time frame.
Low-Carb Breakfast Bowl
This recipe makes enough for one meal or you can split it up into two meals. It’s a very mild recipe that is perfect to build upon and change. I fried my eggs in the same skillet as the bacon and spinach, but you can also crumble up hard-boiled eggs, or make add a couple of poached eggs on top of the cauliflower rice.
If you want the breakfast bowl to have a bit more spice to it, I suggest adding some red pepper flakes and jalapeno slices.
Cauliflower Rice Breakfast
It is possible to make your own cauliflower rice, but I find it saves me a ton of time (and energy) to just buy frozen cauliflower rice. I do have a tip for you. If you make steamable cauliflower rice, place the cauliflower rice in a cheesecloth and wring out as much moisture as you can before you add the other ingredients on top.
The less water the cauliflower rice has, the better this entire bowl will taste. Ideally, you want it to resemble rice as closely as possible.
