These are the best breakfast tacos! Seriously. Everything you could want in a breakfast packed into tortillas with tons of flavor and all your favorite toppings. Plus, they really can be eaten any time of the day! Breakfast for lunch? Sure! Breakfast for dinner! Duh!

Ingredients

The secret to the best breakfast tacos ever is to use my homemade roasted breakfast potatoes which really take these breakfast tacos to the next level!

  • Breakfast Potatoes – I use my roasted breakfast potatoes recipe and it’s outta this world. Full of tender, fluffy potatoes, onions, peppers, and spices.
  • Sausage Links – use your favorite variety! Adds a hearty texture and amazing saltiness.
  • Eggs and Cheddar Cheese – softly scrambled together for a cheesy and delicious filling.
  • Olive Oil – used to cook the eggs.
  • Salt and Pepper – these simple seasonings are all you need!
  • Tortillas, Pico de Gallo, Sour Cream, Cilantro, Guacamole, etc. – for serving!
Pro tip
I love using the Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas for this recipe. They’re the perfect, small size for these filling tacos!

How to make

Only 15 minutes of prep required for this delicious recipe!

  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan then whisk in eggs, salt, and pepper. Cook until the eggs are scrambled. Stir in shredded cheese then remove egg mixture from the skillet.scrambled eggs with cheese added
  2. Cook breakfast sausage.breakfast sausage cooked in saute pan

Pro tip
Cook the sausage and eggs on the stove while the potatoes are roasting in the oven, that way everything should be ready at about the same time!

How to cook eggs for breakfast tacos

The classic way to cook eggs for breakfast tacos is to scramble them…which is what we’re doing today! To scramble eggs for breakfast tacos:

  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Once hot, add in whisked eggs, salt, and pepper.
  3. Cook, using a rubber spatula to scramble, until the eggs are cooked to your liking.
  4. Stir in shredded cheese.
  5. Taste and re-season, if necessary.

If you don’t like scrambled eggs feel free to prepare the eggs your favorite way: sunny-side up, fried, etc.

Variations

The great thing about breakfast tacos is you can really make them just how you like them! Here are some ideas!

  • Spice them up. Use pepperjack cheese instead of cheddar, sprinkle in red pepper flakes or serve with a drizzle of hot sauce or sriracha!
  • Sub in sweet potatoes. Try my sweet potato hash instead of the roasted breakfast potatoes.
  • Make them vegetarian. Use your favorite meatless “sausage” link.
  • Use a different tortilla. Use warmed corn tortillas instead of flour or use a burrito sized tortilla and turn these into breakfast burritos!

What to serve with breakfast tacos

These breakfast tacos pretty much have everything you could want in a breakfast: potatoes, sausage, eggs, cheese, etc.

If you do want to bulk up your meal even further, here are a few more breakfast ideas!

How to store

Store leftover breakfast taco filling in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. I don’t recommend freezing it because the texture of the eggs will be affected.

To reheat, microwave or heat on the stove!
