{Breakfast Burrito Bowls}

This recipe is coming to ya just in time for your weekend brunch!  But, I have to say that I usually enjoy this Breakfast Burrito Bowl for dinner!  Because breakfast for dinner might be one of my favorite things!  Because we all know that breakfast is now my absolute favorite meal of the day!  Yes, I said it the girl who used to loath breakfast just called it her favorite meal!  Stranger things have happened!  

I am also really obsessed with homemade Burrito Bowls!  Which is probably this little concoction was created!  The idea came to me one night when I was craving a burrito bowl but had nothing in the fridge to create one!  I was making dinner for my sister and I and she starred at my oddly when I announced that I was going to make us Breakfast Burrito Bowls for dinner!  She later admitted while she was eating dinner that the Breakfast Burrito Bowl was pretty bomb (maybe not her exact words) and I have to say that I agree with her!  Make these bowls your own, use whatever you have in the fridge, just make them you won't be sorry! 

Breakfast Burrito Bowls
Brunch N'Cupcakes 
Serves 4 

8 Egg Whites or 4 Eggs 
2 Cups of Spinach 
1/2 Cup Black Beans 
1 Medium Pepper Chopped 
4 Oz hot Turkey Sausage - I used Jenni-O
1/2 a Large Onion Chopped 
1/2 Cup Grape Tomatoes - Cut in Half 
1 1/2 Cup Shredded hash browns 
1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro 
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder and Cumin 
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder 
1/4 Teaspoon Salt and Pepper 

Garnish's - Salsa, Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream), Sriracha, Avocado and Lime Wedges.  

1- In a large skillet coated with cooking spray cook turkey sausage until cooked through.   Gently add your hash browns to the skillet along with your spices.  Cook until hash browns begin to brown and are heated through.   Gently stir in black beans and remove skillet from heat and set aside . 
2- In a smaller skillet coated with cooking spray saute onions, peppers and tomatoes until tender.  Once veggies are cooked place them in a small bowl and cover with aluminum foil to stay warm.  Set aside. 
3- Now cook your eggs.  I friend up 2 egg whites for each burrito bowl.  Or you could scramble 8 egg whites or 4 eggs and divide among the burrito bowls. 

To serve -
1- Divide hash brown mixture among 4 bowls.  Top each bowl of hash browns with 1/2 cup spinach and about 1/3-1/2 Cup of the veggie mixture. 
2- Top each bowl with eggs (however you cooked them) and then garnish with toppings!
