Breakfast bowls are a trendy new culinary concept. Not just breakfast bowls, but also things like smoothie bowls. Actually, I love eating any meal out of a bowl. And, my favorite dishes for setting the table are oversized bistro bowls sometimes also referred to as pasta bowls.

- First of all, it’s served in bowls. Usually with breakfast the only thing we use a bowl for is cereal or something like hot oatmeal or cream of wheat.

- Another special thing about this recipe is that you’re going to basically use the same skillet to do the bacon then you’re going to have the great seasonings and flavors in there to help make your noodles even tastier!
- I suppose the best thing about this recipe that makes it special is that you’re usually not eating noodles for breakfast and veggies like the broccoli and red peppers.
The udon noodle. What is it if you’ve never heard of it. It’s used frequently in Japanese cuisine. And, you usually find it simply in noodle soup, maybe with a mild broth and topped with some fresh scallions or green onions. The broth flavor can differ, chicken, beef, but it’s usually darkened because of the soy sauce used. The udon noodle can come dry or you can purchase it pre-cooked and ready to put in your recipe.
