Meal Prep Breakfast Taco Scramble

Eating a healthy breakfast during the week is easy when you meal prep. Prepping for meals ahead that you’re going to eat all week long can be knocked out on a Saturday or Sunday, making the weekdays less stressful.

If you’ve been following my free meal plans, you probably know I’ve been incorporating more meal prep recipes in them, recipes you can make once that can be heated up for the week. I created this for all of the breakfast lovers out there! It’s so good, even to eat for lunch if you wish. I tested this to see how it tasted reheated – it was awesome the next day.

I’m personally not the biggest breakfast person, except for weekends. My biggest meals are lunch and dinner but my brother loves breakfast and always did, so with him in mind I came up with this savory breakfast. I was actually super hungry after the gym this week, and was so happy when I remembered this was in the fridge. These are the glass meal prep containers (affil link) I have and love.

  1. This was a great breakfast prep for the week. So much flavor and left me feeling satisfied every day.

  2. What does “12 1 lb baby potatoes” mean? Is that “12” baby potatoes that equals 1 lb??

  3. Trying to lose some weight here. What’s a healthy portion size for this 

  4. Love, love, LOVE this recipe! I meal prep my breakfast to eat at work and this was perfect. A few changes I made were using 4 regular eggs and 4 egg whites (the egg whites reduced calories and I felt also made the eggs really fluffy), used a whole bell pepper, and I tried Lawry’s seasoned salt because I don’t really like Adobo. Delicious and high in protein. Looking forward to trying this with ground beef and ground chicken in the future.

  5. So good! I did alter the turkey slightly. I didn’t have adobo seasoning salt but I did have chipotle peppers in adobo sauce so I chopped up one of those peppers and added in a bit of the sauce. I don’t love an overly tomatoey taco meat so I omitted the tomato sauce and just added a bit more water. Didn’t lose any flavor due to the chipotle peppers. It was pretty spicy but I’m not mad about it lol. I will definitely be making these potatoes again and again. So easy and delicious!

  6. First discovered your recipes on Facebook and now excited to subscribe so I can enjoy more of your recipes!  They are awesome! Thank you! 
    Especially excited to try Cottage Cheese Spinach Fritatta and now this yummy sounding  Breakfast Taco Scramble! 

  7. Hi!

    I have made this before and absolutely loved it! However, I have recently become a vegetarian and am wondering what the calorie content would be without the ground turkey?

  8. I was wondering if the recipe would still be as good with reheating and or freezing if I did half eggs and half egg whites? And, would you know the nutrition info for me doing that?

    P.S. love your website but it would be nice to be able to search comments in case this question has already been addressed 🙂

  9. We don’t like ground turkey, is there a substitute we can use? Turkey kielbasa?

  10. I made this for meal prep this week. It was easy to put together and so so delicious! It keeps me full until lunch. I will definitely make this again!

  11. I love your recipes Gina! I noticed this recipe states that sodium level in this meal is 1146. Is this number per serving?

  12. I’m looking to buy these glass prep containers. What size should I get? 32oz? bigger or smaller? It’s hard to tell from the pics. I wouldn’t want to divide everything and not have it fit.

    Thanks

  13. These are easy to make and delicious- and they keep me full for several hours! Great recipe. 

  14. “Mom, this is really good. I would eat this every morning.” says my 15 yo son.  Need I say more?

  15. How do you reheat it?

  16. I just made this for my wife and daughter. It was a huge hit. They did not miss anything. Next time I think a little Siracha to the taco meat for a little more heat.

  17. Is the 47 grams of protein for one serving?

  18. Initially, I was thrown off by the idea of leftover eggs rewarmed for breakfast, but holy cow, this is AMAZING. I’ve been swimming in the mornings and I’ve found that I am FAMISHED when I get out of the pool – two hard boiled eggs and a piece of fruit is not cutting it for me in the morning. I made this with a cup of coffee and I’m satisfied. Thanks Gina, for another awesome recipe!

  19. is this 12 1 OUNCE potatoes? 12 ounces total? because as written it would be 12 POUNDS of potatoes. and that is a whole lotta points!!!!
