BLT Breakfast Bowl: A New Take on Eggs and Bacon

Breakfast can be difficult for those of us who have trouble getting started in the morning. Add the desire to be gluten-free and low carb, and it seems like the only thing available is a hearty, messy dish of scrambled eggs and bacon. Time and motivation can knock that idea out of the ball park.

This morning, I was thinking egg salad, because I had hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. But, I wanted something more without adding bread; and, it would be nice to incorporate some fruit or veggies.

So, my egg salad idea started growing. Crumble bacon into the egg salad? Make a BLT with egg salad? Make it a wrap? Could I make it without bread? Noodle and rice bowls are popular. Why not a breakfast bowl with my BLT egg salad ideas?

The BLT Breakfast Bowl is born! This breakfast is hearty, and helped me through cleaning the house today. No, it doesn’t clean the house, you do — with the fortification of a good breakfast. Honestly, it is a salad, but I thought that calling it a “Bowl” gave it a modern spin, and may help me sell it to my family as a legit breakfast.

In order to make this a convenient breakfast, prepare your bacon and hard-boiled eggs ahead of time and keep them in the fridge. These are nice items to always have on hand. You can add them to salads, sandwiches, quick snacks, and so on.  I like to bake bacon, as I’ve posted previously. When your larder is well-stocked, everything in life becomes easier!
