What ingredients do I need to make these Jimmy Dean Copycat Breakfast Bowls?

  • Eggs or liquid eggs
  • Breakfast turkey sausage- I like to use Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles.
  • Southern style hash browns-diced or shredded. I like to use the diced frozen Southern hash browns with onions and bell peppers.  
  • Reduced fat cheddar cheese- shredded 
  • Olive oil– I use only 1 tsp int he entire recipe. It is used to coat the hash browns-which helps make them golden brown. The overall points do NOT increase if you omitted the olive oil. They overall points are the same whether you use it or not. I highly recommend it since it makes the hash browns crispy!
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

These Jimmy Dean Copycat Breakfast Bowls are extremely versatile so you and be creative and feel free to add any of these ingredients:

What meal prep containers do you have and use for these?

I love using Goodcook Meal Prep Bowls for my meal prep recipes. These containers are microwavable and freezer safe. Here’s why I love these meal prep bowls:

  • They fit up to 4 cups of food.
  • They have a built-in dressing or condiment cup that is kept outside bowl for cleanliness.
  • They have a domed lid which gives the food room to shake or to toss salad. 
  • Embossed cup measurements for portion control.
  • They come in a set of 10 bowls, bowl lids, cups, cup lids.

Where can I buy these Goodcook Meal Prep Bowls?

I get them online HERE on Amazon.

How do you make these Jimmy Dean Copycat Breakfast Bowls?

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. (If you’re cooking the hash browns in the oven)

In a large mixing bowl combine 1 tsp olive oil and hash browns. Toss until well combined. 

If cooking the hash browns in the oven; line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Spread hash browns in a single layer of baking sheet or place hash browns in air fryer in a single layer.( You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.)

Cook hash browns for 15 minutes in oven. Turn and bake for another 10 minutes if cooking in the oven and cook at 5 minute intervals until they are crispy and deep golden brown. (Cook 10-12 minutes in air fryer, shaking basket half way through)

Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

Cook crumbled sausage or other meat choice into skillet and cook until golden brown and cooked through. If using Jimmy Dean crumbles, they are already cooked; just heat until golden brown. Drain any excess fat and set aside in a bowl. 

In a medium sized bowl whisk together eggs, unsweetened almond milk, and salt and pepper.

Whisk until well blended.

Using the same pan as the sausage, break eggs into pan, and immediately start stirring the eggs in the pan. This will help you achieve a very fluffy scrambled egg.

Continue to stir and cook your eggs until they are fluffy.

To prepare the bowls, divide the hash browns, sausage crumbles, scrambled eggs between six freezer safe containers.

Top with cheese and fresh parsley, if desired. 

Store in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

To reheat, remove from the freezer. Heat in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until heated through. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 32 oz. package Southern style hash browns, diced. I like to use the Great Value frozen Southern hash browns with onions and bell peppers.  
  • 9 oz. breakfast turkey sausage- crumbled. I like to use Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles
  • 1 cup 50% less fat cheddar cheese, shredded 
  • 10 large eggs or 2 cups liquid eggs
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. (If you’re cooking the hash browns in the oven.)

  7. Cook crumbled sausage or other meat choice into skillet and cook until golden brown and cooked through. If using Jimmy Dean crumbles, they are already cooked; just heat until golden brown. Drain any excess fat and set aside in a bowl. 
  8. In a medium sized bowl whisk together eggs, unsweetened almond milk, salt and black pepper until well blended.
  9. Using the same pan as the sausage, break eggs into pan, and immediately start stirring the eggs in the pan. This will help you achieve a very fluffy scrambled egg.

If I airfry the potatoes, how many points if you don’t use oil

Hi Dan,

The 1 tsp that I use for the entire recipe is 1 point which doesn't affect the points overall. The points per serving are the same with or without the oil.

Thanks
