Breakfast Bowls with Sausage Gravy

It’s breakfast for dinner day! You know I love my breakfast for dinner meals as they are so simple to make and my family thinks it’s a big treat. Little do they know I really don’t like breakfast meals at breakfast time because I find them too heavy to eat but love them later in the day.

Verdict: I made this dish with frozen french fries. Why? Because that is what I had in my freezer. Remember if you don’t have an ingredient or don’t like a spice or item in a recipe get creative! As long as it isn’t a cake, cookie, etc… that depends on something to help it raise then go ahead and make it your own.

We love this because it was all the best parts of breakfast in one bowl. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the sausage gravy but that is my son’s favorite so I put it in there. I am so glad I did!

I served this with a side of fruit salad to complete the meal.

  1. Talk about comfort food. I wanna. 😍😍😍🍃


  2. So creative!! With the French fries, it reminds me of poutine which is really popular in Canada (and maybe other places). It’s a big pile of fries smothered in gravy. 🍟 Your breakfast for dinner looks delicious! 😋

      Thanks! Being sick close to the Canadian border, when it was open we would travel between MI and NY through Canada. We ❤ poutine! Cheese curd is the best!

      1. Cheese curd is the best!! We have a cheese from the Tillamook factory here in Oregon card squeaky cheese. It’s a certain type of cheese curd that literally squeaks on your teeth as you eat it, so you feel like a mouse 🐭 lol
