Breakfast Meat

  • 4-8 oz breakfast sausage cooked & crumbled
  • -or-
  • 4 slices bacon cooked & crumbled

Taco Fillings

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp mayo of choice
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 1 potato diced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 small tortillas of choice I used soft flour
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp chives chopped
  • drizzle of cholula or hot sauce to taste


  • Cook ground breakfast sausage and/or bacon slices as desired. Remove from pan and set meat aside. (Save sausage or bacon fat and use it to cook your potatoes!)
  • In the same pan, heat sausage/bacon fat and saute onion until tender. (Keep in mind, this fat will add flavor + salt to your potatoes!)
  • Add diced potato and season to taste, if needed. Cook for 6-10 minutes, until tender and browned. (Cook time will depend on the size of potato pieces. Cover pan to help potatoes soften, if desired.)
  • Separately, heat a pan over medium heat. Whisk together eggs and mayonnaise. Pour eggs into pan and scramble to your liking.
  • Once components are prepared, assemble breakfast tacos as desired! I like to put my potatoes into the tortillas first, followed by the eggs, sausage and/or crumbled bacon, cheese, chives, and cholula. Serve and enjoy!
  • Optional: serve in taco stand for fun presentation flair!
  • Yields 4 tacos.
