What keeps me from reaching for a bagel is having breakfast already made and waiting to be reheated. Sometimes I warm up dinner leftovers and sometimes I make mini frittatas. There is just something about waking up, enjoying a cup of coffee and knowing that a breakfast of crispy roasted potatoes, fluffy scrambled eggs and turkey taco meat is already made and waiting for me. 

I hope it’s not too soon for another turkey recipe? However, just to be clear, this is not a thanksgiving leftover post but a fun and flavorful meal prepped breakfast. A recipe that I loved reheating and eating every morning this week.

Here’s what you need: 1 pound potatoes, taco seasoning, cayenne pepper (optional), 1 pound extra-lean turkey, 8 eggs, salsa, 1/4 cup plain (non-fat) greek yogurt, 2 green onions, 1/4 cup shredded cheese and cilantro.

For meal prep, you will need four 3-cup storage containers.

First thing is preheat your oven to 400°.  Then on a rimmed, metal baking sheet, add 1 pound diced baby potatoes, 1-1/2 teaspoons taco seasoning and a few shakes of cayenne pepper. There’s salt in the taco seasoning, so you don’t need to worry about it.

Next crack the eggs into a large bowl, whisk to combine and cook in a non-stick skillet over medium heat until scrambled, stirring every so often. About 5 to 8 minutes.

Next divide the crispy taco seasoned potatoes and scrambled eggs among the 4 dishes.

Then divide the turkey taco meat and top the eggs with 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese.

To make the turkey taco meat, I just added 99% fat free ground turkey to a non-stick skillet, breaking it into crumbles and cooking it over medium heat until no longer pink and fully cooked. Then I measured and added 1-1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning and stirred until combined.

Next, into a small cup, measure 1 tablespoon each of greek yogurt. To that, add a tablespoon of your favorite salsa into small cups and seal with a tight-fitting lid.

Then nestle the cups into each container, sprinkle with sliced green onions and tuck in a few sprigs of cilantro. Once everything has cooled down, secure the lid and that’s it!

When you’re ready to reheat, simply remove the cilantro and salsa/yogurt cup and microwave until hot. Then add the salsa, yogurt and torn cilantro leaves, toss and devour!
