If you love breakfast burritos, you’re going to love these breakfast burrito bowls. Loaded with protein, fresh veggies and my favorite homemade taco seasoning, these easy breakfast burrito bowls are the perfect way to start your day.

By ditching the tortilla and using cauliflower rice, this hearty breakfast is low calorie and low fat but filling and nutrient-dense from black beans and veggies. These healthy breakfast burrito bowls are my favorite thing to make when I know I have busy mornings ahead because I can do something different each day.

Add a sunny side up egg, wrap in a low carb tortilla, mix in some air fryer breakfast potatoes or turn into taco salads with lettuce and tortilla chips on top. These are extremely meal prep friendly since they’re so versatile.

Recipe FAQ’s

How to store breakfast bowls?

If using for meal prep, store your ingredients separately in your favorite meal prep containers. Then you’ll have everything ready to go when ready to assemble your bowl.

What toppings go on breakfast burrito bowls?

I like to top these with fried or scrambled eggs, fresh salsa, greek yogurt in place of sour cream, and lots of delicious avocado. What’s great about these bowls is you have a base you can use for breakfast (with eggs) or for lunch topped with salsa and ranch dressing, add in some chopped lettuce and you have a burrito bowl salad.

How do you meal prep breakfast burrito bowls?

If you want to warm your meat prior to mixing, be sure to keep the meat separate when assembling your bowls so you can reheat it and mix into your bowl. You can also pre scramble eggs and warm in the microwave with the meat or make them in the morning when you’re ready to enjoy you bowl.

How do I turn this into a lunch meal prep?

Layer all the ingredients in the bottom of a large sealable container. Top with parchment paper and then place your lettuce on top. This will keep the lettuce from getting soggy in the fridge. When ready to enjoy simple combine everything and top with salsa, ranch dressing or your favorite toppings.
