Breakfast Street Tacos

My daughter has a new addiction. What started out as my breakfast burrito recipe (that she wasn't interested in) evolved into a street taco style breakfast she loves. Since this recipe omits a lot of what I would normally put in my breakfast burrito (pico de gallo, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach) there's not much chopping involved and it's super teenager friendly. Plus, it's healthy!

The idea of eating scrambled eggs on a corn tortilla would have never occurred to me, so all the credit goes to my daughter. I personally prefer a whole wheat low-carb tortilla cut in half for my breakfast burrito, but this kitchen welcomes all new ideas!

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat shredded mozzarella
  • 2 slices turkey bacon
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 3 small corn tortillas

This recipe is simple and kid-friendly. The corn tortillas add more carbs than I need, but for a busy teenager, this is the perfect meal to kick-off a 16+ hour day.

¡Buen provecho!
