Garth's Breakfast Bowl

From 'Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood'

Garths Breakfast Bowl
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

"Garth likes to cook breakfast. It's wonderful to sleep in and wake up to the smell of bacon cooking. Don't be too jealous, but he always has a fresh pot of coffee already made, too! He created this breakfast bowl because he wanted something really hearty. He's the first person I ever met who puts pasta with eggs and bacon, but it works, and it tastes great! If you're really hungry, all the better if you're going to eat one of these breakfast bowls. Don't worry if you can't finish it; Garth will come along later and "clean up"!"

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 16-ounce bag frozen hash browns or Tater Tots, thawed
  • 1 pound pork sausage
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 9-ounce package cheese and roasted garlic tortellini
  • 10 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated (about 2½ cups)
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large skillet, melt the butter and scramble the eggs.

    In a separate large skillet, cook the hash browns according to package directions.

    In a third large skillet, break up the sausage with a wooden spoon and cook until browned.

    Drain off the excess fat. Transfer the sausage to a bowl. Cook the bacon in the same skillet. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

    Cook the tortellini according to the package directions. Layer a large bowl with hash browns, sausage, bacon, tortellini, eggs, and cheese.

    Any potato will do. Garth's even been known to use french fries! I sometimes fry an egg sunny side up and pile it on top of Garth's bowl. He likes the way the yolk oozes into the dish.

    Serves 4
