Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Meal Prep Breakfast Bowls. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Mini golden potatoes work great for this recipe because they air fry up quickly and give a crispy golden brown outer edge. However, you can easily swap for sweet potatoes or russet potatoes.

I used pre-seasoned turkey sausage from Jennie-o, which makes it quick and easy. You may substitute for chicken sausage, ground turkey, ground chicken or tofu for a plant-based version.

Free range eggs provide a bright orange yolk which container more nutrients, however, any eggs will work. You may also use egg whites.

Cottage cheese is optional, but strongly encouraged. It gives the scrambled eggs a lovely taste and even better texture. Plus it adds in an additional protein boost!

I like to finish off the bowls with a touch of sharp cheddar cheese, pico de gallo and cilantro. Feel free to add on your favorite toppings or salsa instead.
