Breakfast Tacos

Submitted by Max Westerman, Product Support Supervisor

Fill Up Your Rad Basket:

  • 6 street taco size tortillas (corn or flour)
  • 3 eggs whisked together
  • 1 potato finely diced or 2 frozen hash brown patties
  • 3 strips of bacon or 4 breakfast sausages
  • ½ onion diced
  • 5 mushrooms diced
  • ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • For garnish
  • Mama Lil’s Peppers (optional)
  • Hot Sauce of choice (optional)
  • Salsa or Pico de Gallo of choice 
  • Lime wedges

 Cook Rad: 

  • In a cast iron skillet or other frying pan, cook your bacon over medium heat (or breakfast sausage) to your preferred texture. I make mine crispy for an added crunch. Remove meat from the pan.
  • Using the bacon grease left in the pan, place the finely diced potato (or frozen potato patty) into the pan and cook until potato cubes are crispy. Remove potato from pan.
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Place diced onions and diced mushrooms in pan. While they cook, place the tortillas on a sheet pan. Mix the shredded cheeses together and sprinkle an equal amount of cheese on each tortilla. Cook the onions and mushrooms until the onions are translucent. 
  • Pour the whisked eggs over the onions and mushrooms and put the tortillas in the oven.
  • Cook the eggs just until there is no more liquid left and remove pan from heat.
  • When the cheese has melted onto the tortillas, remove them from the oven.
  • Take a tortilla and stack the eggs, then the potatoes, then the bacon on top. Squeeze some lime onto the stacked ingredients and top with salsa or pico de gallo. Garnish with hot sauce or something pickled.

  • 1 Serrano pepper
  • 2-4 cloves or garlic
  • 1 shallot (use to taste)
  • 1 block of pepperjack cheese

  • Salt
  • Pepper

Cook Rad: 

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Slice potatoes into french fry size
  • Slice Jalapeno into dime shapes
  • Slice the bell pepper into strips
  • Mince the serrano, habanero, shallot and garlic together into a mash
  • Shred both cheeses
  • Place a layer of cooked fries into a glass serving container
  • Layer: peppers, mash, both cheeses. Repeat if you have more fries after that layer.

Could you make it less hot? Sure, but the cheese and shallots cut the heat nicely.
