It is National Taco Day and I am celebrating by starting the morning with my Egg and Bacon Loaded Breakfast Tacos. Warm tortillas filled with fluffy eggs, crispy bacon, fresh salsa, chopped onions, cheddar cheese, avocado, and fresh cilantro. The perfect breakfast for any taco lover!
Oh my tacos. Who doesn’t love tacos? I feel like they are one of my favorite foods, and I am always excited to see them on the menu. I really love all kinds of tacos too. I feel like the dragon in the children’s book “Dragons Love Tacos” because there is a part where they list the long listing of the different tacos the dragons love. My oldest son loved that book so much that we had a Dragons Love Tacos birthday party for him- I even included taco cookies, a cake with the book design on it, a Dragons Love Tacos t-shirt, and event a make your own taco party game with different paper toppings for the kids to play. I still remember the funny look the bakery staff gave me when I came in with the book to show them. It as probably one of my all-time favorite parties.
These tacos are all sorts of amazing! It starts with fluffy eggs and bacon, and then loaded with all the essential toppings: salsa, cheese, onion, avocado, and fresh cilantro. This recipe is so quick to pt together, and is one of my favorite breakfasts.
You can even leave the bacon out of the eggs if you prefer that to the eggs and bacon. Personally, I love the bacon in this recipe, but I know that is not for everyone, and something that can be an easy adaption so everyone can enjoy the tacos. You could also add roasted or sauteed veggies to your tacos as well for a little extra bulk to your meal.
I often am asked about my eggs because they are really tasty, and I have worked hard to learn to keep them nice and fluffy. The trick I can tell you is to use a little more milk than you think you need, and cook them slow and low. If the heat is too high you miss out of the fluffy quality of the eggs.
Happy National Taco Day!
