After an early morning breakfast event at a recent church gathering, I inherited some extra homemade breakfast tacos. They were individually wrapped in foil so they were easy to freeze. Lately, I have been grabbing them on my way to work and they were my morning lifesaver!
Then a sad day came.
The bag of magical breakfast tacos disappeared and I had no breakfast!
So I decided to make my own and to try to replicate the previous breakfast tacos. And I have to say, I think I succeeded!
These are easy and they are perfect for making ahead of time and freezing!
This recipe makes 10 breakfast tacos but could easily be doubled, tripled, etc. You could also add potatoes or even additional vegetables if desired- I love that these are so flexible.
Make sure to add heat, either with the jalapeno, "hot" sausage or with spicy salsa on top.
It really makes the difference between a good taco and a great taco!
The Apron Gal
Makes 10 regular or 15 small breakfast tacos
12 ounces pork sausage, regular or hot (usually 1 tube)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 jalapeno, chopped
1/3 cup grated cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons salsa
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
10 small/fajita sized flour or corn tortillas or 15 mini tortillas
fresh cilantro, sour cream, additional cheese, or salsa
In a medium skillet over medium high heat, cook sausage with chopped onion and jalapeno, trying to keep sausage in larger chunks so it is easier to spoon into tacos. Cook until no longer pink, then remove to a paper towel lined plate.
In a bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients: eggs, cheese, salsa, salt and pepper. Cook egg mixture over medium heat in same skillet as sausage, stirring constantly for 3-4 minutes or until eggs are scrambled to your liking (don't let them get too dry!).
Assemble tacos by layering sausage and eggs in tortillas and then adding additional toppings as desired. Crumbled queso fresco, cilantro and salsa really make the perfect taco.
If freezing, wrap each individual taco tightly in foil, when ready to eat, remove foil and wrap in a paper towel. Microwave for around 1 minute until warmed.
