The Best Weekend Breakfast

Having friends from out of town over for the weekend? Running low on groceries? Wanting something light, satisfying and nutritious? These Vegetarian Breakfast Tacos are the ultimate weekend breakfast.

If you know how to fry an egg, you know how to make these, in under 10 minutes.

Here’s the drill:

  1. Get a frying pan warming up with some olive oil.
  2. Fry 3 eggs, sunny side up.
  3. Slide your soft taco shells under the eggs, cover the frying pan (or throw in a 300 degree oven) and forget about them for a couple minutes. 

This very important step allows the residual heat from frying the eggs to warm the taco shells and cook any egg whites that need a little extra time.

It’s Topping Time!

Finally, top with whatever you love. Here’s what I’m into:

  • cheese. specifically, extra sharp cheddar
  • micro-greens or cilantro
  • sliced avocado
  • thinly sliced radish
  • pickled anything and everything (onions, jalapeños, carrots, etc.)

Let’s Taco ‘Bout It

Today I’m using my all time favorite soft corn tortilla tacos. These tacos make this recipe naturally gluten free and work as the perfect vehicle to hold that runny egg yolk and crispy egg whites.

You could absolutely use flour tortillas if you’re not gluten/wheat intolerant.

If I was still living that gluten life, I would totally adapt these into breakfast burritos by using the larger variety of tortillas and loading them up with lots of veggies, a couple eggs, and fresh pickled bites.
