The holiday season is finally over for us. All the traveling to and from to visit those we love has worn me out. I haven’t been cooking much over the holidays, hence I have missed my kitchen. Here’s a quick and easy breakfast recipe and the best part it can use up some leftovers from the refrigerator.
Ingredients: feeds 2 to 4 people
- 6 to 10 corn tortillas, cut into strips
- vegetable oil, for frying
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 strips bacon, cooked and minced
- 1/4 cup parsley, minced
- 4 eggs
- shredded cheddar cheese, divided use
- Tapatio Sauce, or hot sauce
- dried yellow mustard
- black pepper
- garlic salt
- 2 Roma tomatoes, or 1 big tomato
- 1 green onion, sliced
Preheat your oven to 350.
Heat some vegetable oil in a 10″-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Use a skillet that can go from the stove-top to the oven. Add the corn tortillas strips and fry until just crispy. Remove and let drain over paper towels. Turn off the heat, wipe the skillet with a paper towel to remove excess oil and place the skillet back on the warm burner. Add the onions, bacon and garlic, let them heat in the hot skillet until the onions are soft. Do not turn the heat back on.
In a medium bowl add the parsley, eggs, a handful of shredded cheese, a shake of hot sauce, cumin, dried yellow mustard, black pepper and garlic salt. Now add the softened onions, bacon and garlic and whisk all the ingredients together. Toss the fried tortilla strips into the wet ingredients until covered with egg mixture. Place this mixture back into the skillet. Bake for 10 minutes after which you will sprinkle the top with more cheddar cheese and tomatoes. Bake for another 15 minutes. Top with sliced green onion, cut into wedges, top with some sour cream or salsa and serve. Try serving this over a bed of greens and re-fried beans for a complete breakfast plate.
