Everyday Mom's Meals: Different Name, Same Idea

Different Name, Same Idea

When I first started creating this recipe in my mind, I was trying to once again recreate something my son had "out" at various places and I wanted to treat him with at home. Alex loves breakfast burritos; and has eaten them from several different restaurants. So I figured why not make them at home for a simple supper (You know how much we love breakfast for supper) while at the same time controlling the ingredients. Well when I went to buy the tortillas, I discovered the ones sized for soft tacos are much easier for little hands to handle, and the size I usually buy no matter if they are for tacos or not. This got me thinking, a burrito is usually rolled, "sealed" and made with a larger sized tortilla. So I thought "Why can't I use the same ingredients, but in a smaller 'shell' and just call it a breakfast taco instead." Well, I can do whatever I want in my kitchen, so that's what I made instead! These were a huge hit with both men in my house, and would be great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The combinations of ingredients are endless and you can totally make them to suit your family and their tastes. Plus they are great for breakfast "on the go" for those super busy work and school mornings. I love when one great idea leads to another one, especially when it involves only a name change!

Breakfast Tacos
8 large eggs
1 lb. bulk pork sausage, mild or hot
2 TBS heavy cream
1 green pepper, finely chopped
4 small tomatoes, seeded, chopped and divided
1/3 c. taco blend cheese, plus more for topping
Salt and Pepper to taste
8 flour tortillas, soft taco size

In a large skillet, brown sausage until no longer pink. Drain, reserving 1 TBS drippings. Set aside. In same skillet, saute' peppers and half of the tomatoes until tender. In a large bowl whisk eggs, cream, 1/3 cup cheese, salt and pepper. When veggies are tender, reduce heat to low and add eggs and sausage. Cook on low, constantly stirring until eggs are scrambled and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Fill tortillas with egg mixture. Top with reserved raw tomato and extra cheese.
