Comments

  1. Really, really delicious, but it took too long for a weekday — even with all the veggies pre-chopped. Next time, I’ll pre-cook the bacon, too.

  2. Im confused on all these recipes because it doesnt say how much is a serving. Are all these meals usually 1 cup for a serving?? HELP!!!!!

    1. alexusmendez21 – This recipe’s nutritional info, including the serving numbers is at the top of the page. The recipe serves 2.

  3. Yum! I had to leave out the green beans because apparently they are an allergen for me. Also, I didn’t have any avocado, so I skipped that, too…LOL This was still really, really yummy…

    What would be a good substitute for green beans for me? I noticed a few recipes this week call for them.

  4. Yummy yummy for my tummy!!!! This was amazing :)) I would also agree with Saltshrimp, it was a little time consuming for a weekday breakfast, but I will absolutely try it again on a day off or week end. The boyfriend even liked it, only difference was he had his with two eggs. The only things I added was chopped garlic and chili powder to taste. Everything was awesome!

    1. Hi tiffany d – You can make this the night before, but the green beans and sweet potato might discolor a bit. If you don’t mind that slight discoloration, go for it! Just be sure to wait to cut the avocado for the top until right before serving (it will oxidize and turn brown).

  5. Are the calories correct for this meal? I come out with around 782 with this recipe as is, 520 with half the amount of bacon per serving, and 470 with half the amount of bacon and half the amount of avocado per serving. What type of bacon are you using?
