Chorizo Sheet Pan Breakfast
This Chorizo Sheet Pan Breakfast is packed with healthy protein, starches, fats, and veggies! This is a great meal to prep for a week's worth of breakfast or to whip up whenever you're hosting your next brunch.
I'm excited to extend my sheet pan dinner series today with a quick venture into breakfast land! This egg-free breakfast option is delicious, simple to prepare, and incredibly satisfying. In fact, I've since made it twice more so that I could spoon off portions into freezer-friendly containers. Meals like this (ones that freeze/defrost well) are one of my favorite healthy living hacks! Double the batch, freeze what you can't eat right away, and know that you're only a defrost away from a healthy breakfast on a future busy morning.
Chorizo is the star of this sheet pan breakfast! Flavorful in its own right, we're pairing it with roasted potatoes and peppers. The beauty of a sheet pan meal is that all the flavors combine in the oven, resulting in a poised, ingredient-balanced meal. If you're looking for ways to make this your own, feel free to swap in pork sausage for the chorizo, maybe add a few sprinkles of cojita cheese to the top, and toss in a few greens (like brussels) to the mix.
