Brunch is a favorite for many. After all, what’s there not to like about sleeping in and enjoying a warm meal over mimosas or bloody Marys?

 Sink your teeth into one of these delightful brunch recipes, featuring umami-rich mushrooms:

1. Let's Blend® Breakfast Bowl

There’s nothing like a hearty breakfast bowl to hold you over until dinnertime. This power bowl contains nutritious bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and onion to kick off your first meal right— with vegetables. And let’s not forget the mushrooms, conveniently pre-chopped and seasoned in a Let’s Blend® package. Paired with the protein found in its sausage and eggs (and the starch of delicious sweet potato) you’ll have the energy you need to slay the day.

Does your local grocer carry Let's Blend? For those who can’t grab our ready-to-go mushroom blend, use your own freshly chopped mushrooms instead. Season with rosemary, oregano, basil, marjoram, and thyme.

Ingredients

1 package Let’s Blend Italian flavor (or see our recommendations above for seasoning your own fresh mushrooms)

1/2 lb ground pork sausage

1 medium sweet potato, diced

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced

1/2 cup onion, diced

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 avocado, diced

2 eggs

Grab your skillet and get ready to sizzle up a warm power bowl. Find the full instructions here.
