Breakfast Bowls

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.

What are Udon Noodles

I’m sure you’ve tasted an udon noodle and they’re the star in this udon noodle breakfast bowl! Yes, they are sooooooooooo good! And, the prepackaged ones are sooooooooooooo convenient! I mean, isn’t that part of what we’re looking for when cooking? Taking some shortcuts and having some conveniences that save time and don’t keep us chained to the kitchen!

Udon noodles are made very much like pasta, wheat flour, water, and salt. These noodles are thicker and have a creamy white appearance. Texture wise, udon noodles are chewier and more substantial as a noodle, kind of like an Italian bucatini noodle. Personally, I love thick noodles!

Breakfast Bowls

I think there are several things that make this breakfast udon noodle bowl special.

  • 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 thing, I’m asking you to warm that bowl. Now make sure you can put your bowl in the oven. It’s on very low, of course, and I’m telling you it will make all the difference when you put everything in. 
  • 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.

Udon Noodle

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. 

Udon Noodles Recipe

If you’ve cooking your udon noodles then it’s much like pasta, in a pot of boiling water. Udon noodles recipes can range from mixing a variety of vegetables and meats to egg slices and more. Udon noodles can be eaten hot or cold. As you see, they’re perfect for a variety of udon noodles recipes and it’s a way to change up your dishes!

 Now, make sure you fix your egg to the finish that suits your palate. You can also do a sunnyside egg if you don’t want to soft boil. Whatever you do, I think you’re going to really enjoy this shift in breakfast! And, let your imagination soar with other udon noodle bowl ideas for brekkie!!    xxo ~ally

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • Preheat oven to 170
  • 3 eggs, soft boiled
  • 2 sausage patties
  • 2 cups broccoli flowerets
  • 1 pouch (7.1 oz.) Udon noodles
  • 2 Tbl. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbl. soy sauce, low sodium
  • ¼ cup red peppers, diced

Instructions

  1. Place the serving bowls in the warm oven.

Drain hot water and cover with cold water to stop cooking. Set aside. Peel when cool. Slice in halves (lengthwise) when ready to serve.
  3. Coat a heavy skillet over medium heat with cooking spray. Let it get hot. Put the sausage patties in and fry on each side about 2-3 minutes. When you flip the patties, smoosh down to flatten some. Remove to a plate.
  4. Add the broccoli to the pan. Coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with one-half teaspoon of pepper. Cover and steam about 4-5 minutes turning occasionally. When tender, but still al dente, put equal amounts in each bowl.
  5. Microwave the Udon noodles (still in the package) on high for 75 seconds. Remove and cut open the packaging. Using the same skillet on medium heat, add the sesame oil and the noodles. Cover and let them steam about 2-3 minutes. Use a fork to gently separate the noodles. Add the soy and blend. Cover and cook another 3 minutes. Add the diced red peppers. Turn off heat. Cover and steam about 2 minutes.
  6. Time to plate your breakfast bowl. Add some Udon noodles to each, the sausage pattie and three soft boiled egg halves. Sprinkle with the remaining pepper.
