Lets face it, breakfast can be boring. During the week I am trying to do a bunch of different things to get out the door on time so there isn’t much variation in the breakfast food. Think cereal, yogurt with granola, smoothie, or that bagel which I know I shouldn’t get but always fill me up. On the weekends it usually is some of those same things but we will add in scrambled eggs or when we are doing a “big” breakfast we will make pancakes, bacon, fruit salad, tater tots.
We recently went to Houston and Austin, Texas to visit some friends and family. The food in Texas, especially Austin, was amazing. Most of our meals there were either mexican or BBQ style (side note if Torchy’s Tacos ever comes to Connecticut you definitely have at least one customer). A couple of weeks after we got back we had some company staying over our house who are foodie types and we wanted to make sure they ate well. One thing we had to be cautious of as well was making a gluten free meal due to an intolerance. We decided that for breakfast on Sunday morning we would make breakfast tacos inspired by our recent Texas trip.
- (*This served 4 adults)
- 1 Jalapeno
- ½ Red Onion
- Salt & Pepper
- Eggs (1 egg per taco)
- Sharp Cheddar
- 1 Avocado
- Tortillas (we used corn due to the gluten free)
In addition you can really make the toppings whatever you want based on your own tastes
- Heat up griddle and spray with nonstick spray (you can also use pans on the stove). Put tortillas on the griddle for about 30 seconds each side to heat quickly.
- On one side of the griddle cook jalapenos and onions.
- While the jalapenos and onions are cooking, crack egg and open onto the griddle. Place each egg on griddle so they are separate. Once one side of the egg is cooked, flip over.
- Add onions, jalapenos, and shredded cheese on top of each egg. Add some salt & pepper your liking
- Once cheese is melted, pick up the egg with a spatula, place a tortilla on the griddle and place the egg towards one side of the tortilla. Fold in half.
- Serve the tacos with other toppings to taste after taken off the griddle. I added avocado to mine where my husband added some Sriracha.
This recipe definitely adds a bit of flavor to a meal that can become a bit boring and overall is pretty healthy start to the day!
