Breakfast Bowl

All your breakfast favorites put together. This is sort of a take off of Denny's® Farmer's Scramble (which they no longer make, unfortunately). I love breakfast, and you can make this bowl almost any way you want to.

1 bowl


  • 1 medium potato, grated

  • 1 pinch salt, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, or as needed

  • pound pork sausage, or to taste

  • cup chopped onion

  • cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 1 egg, or more to taste

  • 1 (2.5 ounce) package country gravy mix

  • 2 cups water

  • cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste


  1. Mold grated potato into a patty shape. Season with salt.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook potato patty until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Heat another skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Set sausage aside on a plate, reserving grease in the skillet.

  4. Heat reserved sausage grease over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper and saute until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  5. Heat the same skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk egg in a bowl and pour into the skillet; cook and stir until set, about 5 minutes.

  6. Pour gravy mix into a small saucepan. Whisk in water. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until gravy comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat; gravy will thicken upon standing.

  7. Place cooked hash brown potato patty in the bottom of a serving bowl. Top with egg, sausage, onion and pepper mixture, and gravy, in that order.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any cheese you'd like.

You can use 2 to 3 strips of bacon cut in half instead of sausage. You can also make patties out of the sausage instead of crumbling, if desired.

You can use a sausage gravy mix instead of white gravy, if desired.
