This amazing caramelized mushroom breakfast bowl combines bacon and eggs with fruit, avocados and spinach for one delicious and filling start to the day. It’s an added benefit that this dish is one of my 30 minute meals, too!This caramelized mushroom breakfast bowl is a luscious combination of hearty goodness that is Paleo, Whole30, Dairy free and Gluten Free.

I love a breakfast recipe that can be assembled and served in a single bowl. Doing this allows the flavors combine so that each layer gets some of the goodness of all the ingredients.

You won’t believe how fast and easy it is to make this caramelized mushroom breakfast bowl.

Whole30 breakfast ideas are big on protein, and have lots of flavor.

Got about 15 minutes?  The you can make this amazing breakfast! Just start by boiling your water with a bit of vinegar.  It will come to the boil while you start cooking the other parts of the dish in a non stick pan. Cook the bacon first and allow it to drain on paper towels.Crisp bacon gets cooked first

Shallots and plump white mushrooms go into the same pan.(no need to add more oil!) Don’t crowd them. The key to caramelized mushrooms is to let them brown and take on the oil. If you crowd them too much, they will steam and that is not what you are after.  Caramelize some mushrooms with garlic

Once the shallots are translucent and the mushrooms have caramelized, stir in some minced garlic, the grape tomatoes and a big pan full of baby spinach.Add spinach and grape tomatoes to the mushrooms

By now the water will have boiled and you can add the eggs to poach softly for about 3-4 minutes while you build the breakfast bowl. Layer over the vegetables first. They make a bed for everything else. Don’t they look amazing?Layer your vegetables first.

Next comes a few strawberries, the cooked bacon and some sliced avocado.  Leave room in the center for the soft cooked egg.Layers of fruit, bacon, spinach, and mushrooms make up this great breakfast recipe

Finally, add the soft cooked eggs. I can’t wait to get a taste of this!Add some poached eggs to your caramelized mushroom breakfast bowl

The soft cooked egg oozes down over the layers of vegetables making each mouthful so full of flavor.  Take a bit of this great breakfast idea

The breakfast has healthy fats from the avocado, lots of protein from the eggs. It’s full of the flavor of the caramelized onions, mushrooms and garlic and even has a bit of sweetness to have at the end with the strawberries. It is filling, satisfying and totally fits into a Paleo or Whole30 diet plan. The breakfast bowl is finished in a flash
