Recipe Redux – Egg, Avocado & Spinach Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

By  Ann Dunaway Teh & Lesley Baradel

Egg, Avocado and Spinach Breakfast Bowl

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Break out of Breakfast Boredom.” We don’t know about you, but breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the day! We rarely get bored of our breakfast, but it is always fun to try new ideas. While during the week, we tend to be more pressed for time, on the weekend we can experiment a bit more.

At both of our houses you’ll find the freezer stocked with Lesley’s cook n’ freeze  pancakes and waffles that our kids can grab, reheat and eat any time. We are also fans of oatmeal, homemade muffins, eggs, and bowls of whole grain cereal and granola topped with lots of fresh berries and kefir.  

Egg, Avocado and Spinach Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

Oatmeal is a breakfast staple and we each have our own recipe that we generally follow – usually ground flaxseed, almond meal and/or chia seeds are part of the mix along with cinnamon, a little bit of brown sugar, a dash of vanilla extract, and milk instead of water. But lately we’ve been curious about savory oatmeal and decided to create an oatmeal breakfast bowl to really liven up our breakfast routine. And we believe we’ve found a new winning breakfast idea. Funny thing is, we both dreamed up the exact same thing when deciding what to make for this month’s redux!

Ingredients for Egg, Avocado and Spinach Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

The great thing about this Egg, Avocado & Spinach Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl is that it is so versatile. You can easily change it up to make it your own based on your favorite toppings. Change out the ground flaxseed for almond meal or chia seeds. Not a fan of almonds, use another favorite nut or leave off altogether. While we used scrambled eggs, an over medium or poached egg with a runny yolk would also be delicious. Any leftover roasted vegetables would be a nice change of pace too. And a flavored cheddar cheese like Cabot’s jalapeno cheddar would be a nice spicy addition too.  

This comes together quickly too. Of course, you could combine the oats and milk and keep in the refrigerator the night before to make overnight oats for an even faster prep time. For fluffier eggs, really whisk the egg well to incorporate more air into the eggs and then cook in a pan. Or put in a small greased microwavable bowl, and cook for 1 minute on high. Then top with your desired toppings and breakfast is ready!

Recipe Notes

Chef’s Note: For fluffier eggs, make sure you stir with a whisk really well before cooking. Alternatively, put the eggs in a small greased microwavable bowl and cook on high for 1 minute.

Mix It Up: Swap out the ground flaxseed for chia seeds or almond meal or leave the spinach off if that isn’t your thing. A poached or over medium egg with a runny yolk would also be tasty instead of scrambled.
