Tacos for breakfast? We'll give that a resounding "si!"
- 6 6-inch tortillas
- 6 Eggs
- 1/8 Cup half and half
- 2 Tablespoon butter
- Salt pepper to taste
- 1/2 Cup Pimento cheese
- Optional toppings: pico de gallo, bacon, crumbled chorizo, avocado, cilantro, hot sauce
Warm tortillas in a dry pan over medium heat, 1-2 minutes per side, and set aside in between cotton or linen tea towels.
In a 10-12 inch non-stick "egg" pan, melt butter over medium heat. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, half and half, and salt and pepper. Continue whisking while pouring into the pan, stirring occasionally until eggs have achieved a custard-like texture.
Add Pimento Cheese to eggs in spoonfuls halfway through cooking. Top each tortilla with pimento-cheesy eggs, finishing with your choice of pico de gallo, bacon, crumbled chorizo, avocado, cilantro, or hot sauce.
Eat immediately or roll up in foil to eat on the run.
