Had some unexpected overnight guests, so I worked on a fun, unique breakfast to serve them. Came up with what I call my mini flour tortilla hack, and stuffed them with all things yummy. You can vary the ingredients to your particular tastes, and have at it. Easy/peasy to make… If you have your ingredients, you will have them on the breakfast table in 10 – 12 minutes. This recipe gives you the ingredients, and amounts for one breakfast taco. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make breakfast essentials: egg, bacon, cheese tacos

  • 1
  • 2
    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 3
    Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 350f (175c).
  • 4
    Drape the taco over the wire rack, and shape until the edges are pointing down. Cook until the tortilla begins to crisp, and holds its form. Remove from the oven, and reserve.
  • 5
    Place a skillet over medium heat, and add the diced bacon.
  • 6
    Cook to your desired crispness, then remove from pan, and drain on paper towels.
  • 7
    Remove all but a teaspoon of grease from the pan, and add the whisked eggs.
  • 8
    Scramble until almost cooked, then remove from the heat, add the bacon and combine.

    Chef’s Note: Season with a bit of salt and pepper, if using.

  • So yummy
    Add the salsa to the bottom of the taco. Stuff with the egg/bacon mixture. Top with the cheese. If you want the cheese melty (up to you), stick it under a broiler for about 20 seconds.

    I like to serve it with some sliced tomatoes, sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper; however, that is totally up to you. Enjoy.
