forget oatmeal, this sweet potato, turkey sausage, egg bowl has you covered for breakfast, lunch or dinner! this savory power bowl is packed with nutritional superstars -- sweet potato, avocado, turkey sausage, greens, and eggs | www.nourishmovelove.comThe 30 minute meal series was a hit; you guys loved the lemon chicken with garlic roasted veggies recipe {and so did Twin Cities Live, watch the live segment here}. So dietitian Stacie and I are back with another 30 minute meal series.

We combined the powers of our healthy foodie duo to scheme up two recipes made from the same 8 ingredients. Clever right? We thought so! Make this healthy ingredient list into a savory bowl for one or turn it into a wholesome egg bake for the whole family to enjoy. 

Not only is this a two for one, two recipes with one set of ingredients; but it’s actually more like a three for one because it’s a satisfying meal for anytime of the day — breakfast, lunch or dinner! In fact, I’ve been known to eat this meal twice a day {and I know Stacie has too, we’re breakfast anytime of the day kind of ladies}!

So let’s jump into the recipes. I’m sharing the sweet potato, turkey sausage, egg bowl here and you can find the hearty egg bake recipe on Stacie’s blog, The Real Food Dietitians.

This power bowl is packed with nutritional superstars like sweet potato, avocado, turkey sausage, greens, and eggs. Talk about a healthy, well-balanced bowl, rich in iron and fiber. Not to mention savory and satisfying as it’s protein-packed {turkey sausage and eggs} and topped with with healthy fats {avocado}.

You can whip up this bowl in 20 minutes or less. And when I say less I mean using already prepared sweet potatoes and/or turkey sausage. I personally like to prep a large batch of cubed sweet potatoes at the beginning of the week, and I’ve started doing this with turkey sausage as well.

That way if i’m in a time pinch all I need to do is sauté the greens, peppers and onions and fry an egg while I re-heat the cubed sweet potatoes and turkey sausage. Viola! Just like that you can turn this 20-to-30 minute meal into a 5-to-10 minute meal.

Meanwhile the egg bake will take a full 30 minutes, but once you have a pan made the leftovers are good all week {or in my house a whole 2-to-3 days}.

And I have to give my friends over at Fix Hot Sauce a shoutout for sending me a free bottle of their Sriracha hot sauce! It completes this beautiful bowl!

Recipe type: breakfast, lunch, dinner power bowl

  • optional: 1-2 tbsp hot sauce
Instructions
  1. heat a medium-to-large pan on the stove with 1 tbsp coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil {i prefer coconut oil as it heats well and adds a little sweetness to the sweet potatoes}.
  2. sautè the cubed sweet potatoes in the large pan until they start to golden around the corners. about 10 minutes.
  3. when finished with the sweet potatoes, in the same pan brown the turkey sausage {ground or patty that you can divide into smaller pieces}. note if you don't have turkey sausage you can always use 4 oz. ground turkey and season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Once the turkey sausage is browned, in the same pan sautè the red pepper, red onion and greens. sautè for 2-3 minutes.
  5. the final step is to fry an 1-2 eggs over the stove. i like to cook my eggs in 1 tbsp coconut oil, over easy, but you can prepare your egg{s} to your personal preference.
  6. Place all ingredients into a bowl -- greens, veggies, sweet potato and turkey sausage and top with egg{s}. Add salt, pepper, and optional hot sauce and enjoy!
Notes
*gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut-free.
**if you don't have turkey sausage you can always just season ground turkey.

    • Hi Tessa! Great question, turkey sausage is one of those items I do buy at Whole Foods, I really like the ‘Legacy’ brand! It’s my personal favorite. But what’s really important is making sure there are no nitrates in your turkey! I hope that helps! xo-Lindsey

    • Yes! Me too Cassie! I’m a huge fan of sweet potatoes or butternut squash with my eggs; this is the perfect savory breakfast combo {although I often eat it for lunch and dinner too}! Enjoy!

  1. YUM!! These both look amazing! I just love how you only used 8 ingredients (I’m all about that) and made such lovely meals. Also, that’s so great that this could be breakfast, lunch or dinner! I love sweet potatoes! Thanks for the recipe love!
    xoxo Cailee!

    • Cailee! Right 8 ingredients for 2 recipes, go grocery shopping once and get a full week of breakfast and/or lunch/dinner! Recipes under 10 ingredient are my jam! Hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do (hands in the air for sweet potato love)! xo-Lindsey

  2. Both the bake and the bowl look awesome! I think both recipes would work really well for busy people who are trying to make 1 big recipe and to re-use throughout the week. I could see myself making 3 or so bowls on Sunday for breakfasts throughout the week. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.

    • Yes they are delicious, savory and satisfying and my favorite part is they’re not just for breakfast but for anytime of day! I love including egg bakes in my meal prep, so easy to have on hand throughout the week! I hope you enjoy this power bowl as much as I do!
