A savory egg breakfast bowl filled with classic flavors of a Denver omelet! Crispy tater tots for your base, creamy scrambled egg all combined with green peppers, onion, ham and Swiss cheese.
Do you ever go to a diner and wish you could recreate how amazing they make breakfast taste, in the comfort of your own kitchen?
Well today you can friends. Because this Denver Tot Savory Breakfast Bowl is like a diner in a bowl, but so much healthier made from home.
Plus it is gluten free and can easily be made paleo if you eliminate the cheese!
I mean just imagine biting into the ever amazing crispy tater tots and with each bite you get a taste of salty ham, crisp onions and green peppers. Then you have the creamy scrambled eggs and melty Swiss cheese to top it off.
I know Swiss isn't a traditional Denver omelet ingredient but I think you should at least give it a try for the sake of saying you did. You won't be mad about it. I promise.
Ingredients and Substitutions
The ingredient list is small and friendly and super tasty. Here is what you need:
- frozen tater tots- be sure to read the ingredient labels and find a tater tot that meets your dietary needs. There can be some pretty nasty ingredients in them if you are not careful.
- sliced deli ham- I used Boars Head Simplicity brand.
- Swiss cheese- I will always recommend you go the route of a cheese bar and shred yourself. You eliminate gross ingredients and it tastes better.
- green pepper
- white onion
Obviously you will need some butter for cooking and salt and pepper to taste.
Feel free to sub in any ingredient you want. This bowl is completely customizable to your tastes! Like fried eggs? That works too. Craving hash browns? Perfect eat em up!
Can I make this breakfast bowl ahead of time?
Yes,this bowl can be made ahead of time and you could do it one of two ways.
First way: you can follow all the directions, divide the meals into three meal prep bowls and you have breakfast for half the week.
Second way: just make all of the ingredients and keep them separated like a salad bar. Then assemble the bowls as you eat them through out the week!
