Good morning friends! Welcome to our first Taco Tuesday together. I am so excited to share some of my favorite taco recipes with you all. Tacos are my husband's favorite food of all time, this means I have found lots of different recipes to give us a little variety. For our first Taco Tuesday I will be sharing my recipe for breakfast tacos, very much inspired by one of our favorite restaurants, G's. This recipe uses soft flour tortillas, so if you were wondering what to do with those Homemade Tortillas we made last week, this is it! At G's they put country gravy on their breakfast tacos AND green chili. This is something I never would have thought of, but am so happy they did, because let me tell you...it's one of the best food combinations I've ever had.
If you ever needed a way to impress your friends and family with a meal, look no further because this taco is a show stopper. It's a great option for breakfast, brunch, lunch or breakfast for dinner! There are a lot of elements to this dish, so give yourself a little time in the kitchen and prepare for some clean up. It's so worth it though, I promise!
1/2 lb - bacon - crispy
2 - small yukon gold potatoes - diced
1/2 medium yellow onion
4 - 6 large eggs - scrambled
Shredded Cheddar Cheese for sprinkling
Country Gravy Packet
Green Chili Sauce - We use Nanita's Finest Medium Heat Green Chili Sauce
6 to 8 - Flour Tortillas
The first thing I always start with is the bacon, because it is the one ingredient that can be served at room temperature and still be really tasty. Once that is done, dice your potatoes and onions then toss them with olive oil so they are coated. Now place the potatoes and onions in a 400° oven for 15-20 minutes (depending on the size of your potatoes, this may vary slightly) You want to keep them in the oven until the potatoes are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
While the potatoes and onions get crispy and delicious in the oven, start your scrambled eggs. Crack four to six eggs into a small bowl and add a splash of milk or cream, salt and pepper. Now whisk them up until the eggs are well combined. Heat your non stick pan to medium heat then add the eggs. Let them sit for a couple minutes before starting to scrape the bottom of the pan and stir your eggs with a rubber spatula. Keep stirring the egg mixture until you have beautiful, fluffy scrambled eggs. Be sure not to overcook these. Once your eggs are no longer runny and appear fluffy, they are done and should be removed from the heat.
Alright, the eggs are done, the bacon is done, the potatoes should be about done at this point. Let's start our country gravy. I use a packet for this, it's so fast and I already have so much to cook that I am willing to take this shortcut. Follow the directions on the packet to make your gravy. Once this is complete, we are ready to plate! Grab a tortilla, place a spoonful of potatoes on the tortilla. Now add your egg, sprinkle with bacon and cheddar cheese. Lastly, my favorite part...smother with country gravy and your favorite green chili sauce and eat up! I really hope you all enjoy this as much as we do in the Tuttle household.
Thanks for cooking with me!
