Cheesy Egg Tacos — another delicious breakfast idea!

As promised, here is the second yummy breakfast idea from Lyndsay of I Eat My Peas (yesterday we shared her Quinoa Oats — have you tried them yet?). The Cheesy Egg Tacos she’s sharing today make me even more excited about breakfast (and it’s already my favourite meal of the day!). I happen to love tacos but I’ve never thought about making them for breakfast before. But that will change as of tomorrow! 🙂

Thanks again for another inspirational breakfast idea, Lyndsay!

Cheesy Egg Tacos

This is such a fun way to start the day! There isn’t really a better way to serve scrambled eggs. These tacos are packed full of nutrients, so quick to make and my kids love adding different toppings and personalising them.

Per person:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 2 small corn tacos or tortilla
  • handful grated mozzarella or cheddar

Toppings: fresh tomatoes, avocado, sweetcorn, roasted peppers, pesto or siracha sauce if you like it spicy!

Cheesy Egg Tacos

Place the butter in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the egg and let it set slightly and then slowly move the egg around with a wooden spoon. You don’t want to break the egg up too much but instead end up with large flakes of moist egg. Take the pan off just before the egg is fully cooked (it won’t take longer than 2 minutes) and scatter over the cheese so the cheese melts as the egg finishes cooking with the heat of the pan.

Meanwhile, warm the tortilla in the oven and put your toppings in pots on the table.

Place two tacos on each plate, fill with cheesy egg and let everyone help themselves to the toppings.
