Trying to come up with new breakfast ideas for the kids can be quite the challenge, but I am finding that they really enjoy it when I make them breakfast bowls.
Of course the best part about these meals are they are easy to prep as well as customize for each member of the family. I especially like how simple and healthy a Southwestern Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl was that I recently made from a recipe recommended by the American Heart Association.
Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association’s Healthy For Good™ are actually partnering up in honor of National Family Meals Month™ to encourage families to take the Family Meals Pledge.

Check out how to make the Southwestern Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl Recipe!
- 1/4 cup raw quinoa
- 1/2 avocado, pitted and diced
- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 1 cup no salt added frozen corn, thawed
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup cilantro (optional)
- 4 Eggland’s Best Eggs (large)
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspooon ground black pepper
- hot sauce (optional)
To get started, cook the quinoa according to the package directions and then remove from heat to let sit.
Next up, prepare the remaining ingredients: pit and cut up the avocado half; chop the tomatoes; chop the scallions, and chop the cilantro.
Also start the eggs.
Do so by coating a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium-high heat.
Crack each egg into the skillet and season with salt and pepper and cook until ready.
Next, divide quinoa between 4 bowls.
Then, arrange the avocado, tomatoes, corn, and cilantro between each bowl. (Due to bowl space, I saved the scallions for a garnish)
I ended up dicing my Avocado once it got into the bowl for less mess.
Tip: The original recipe called for sunny-side-up eggs. However according to the American Heart Association any egg preparation can be used, so I substituted in scrambled since that would go over better with my children.
To finish the Southwestern Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl, I added the eggs to each bowl and garnished with the scallions for color.
I then served this to the kiddos and as we ate together, I instructed them to mix up their bowls to combine the ingredients.
They enjoyed this Southwestern Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl Recipe and speaking from my own experience of the meal, it was delicious and full of flavor.
