Extra Tips for this Family Friendly Recipe
Freeze this recipe: Follow the recipe directions, but don’t bake them. Instead, place them on a baking sheet that’s covered with parchment paper & then freeze them for a couple of hours. Once they are frozen, wrap them individually in parchment paper and foil and keep them frozen in a freezer bag or other airtight container. Then when you are ready, pre-heat the oven & bake them up for a quick, on the run, balanced bite.
Cooking the eggs by microwave: Whip the eggs together. Place them in a butter-coated glass dish and microwave on high for one minute. Remove the dish with an oven mitt and stir. Continue to cook the eggs at one-minute intervals, stirring in between, until the eggs are fully cooked.
Save time: Purchase shredded cheese vs. block cheese that you have to shred.
My homemade Salsa: I like to make Breakfast Tacos with my homemade salsa recipe.
My Salsa Recipe by Jodie Fitz
1 cup diced red grape tomatoes
½ cup finely chopped Vidalia onions
½ cup green bell pepper, finely diced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, fresh
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Stir together the diced tomatoes, finely chopped Vidalia onions, the diced peppers, the chopped fresh cilantro & the minced garlic. Set aside.
Note: You can pulsate the ingredients together in a mini chopper or food processor.
A little extra taco love: Fold one taco shell in half. Using clean kitchen scissors, cut the tortilla semi-circle into the shape of a half heart. Repeat the process with a second tortilla wrap. Double the above recipe, and fill the taco halves. Bake as directed above. Put the two halves together to make one heart filled breakfast.
