How to make Breakfast Tacos
There are a few steps to these tacos, but you can easily set this meal up so everyone can assemble their own tacos! To make this easy breakfast recipe you simply need to follow this guide:
- Sausage: Cook and crumble the breakfast sausage. This is an easy step to do the night before if you want to make breakfast come together quickly.
- Scramble: Scramble the eggs to your liking. I like fresh eggs, but it is safe to reheat eggs, so this step can actually be done the night before as well if you prefer.
- Assemble: Warm the tortillas if you wish, fill with warm sausage, eggs, cheese and veggies!
This sausage breakfast taco is great on its own, but add a Sunshine Shake or Coffee Frappuccino to wash it down! If you want to add some variety, add some Breakfast Chaffle Toasts or Lemon Cheesecake Parfaits.
Easy breakfast tacos can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. For the freshest tortillas, do not assemble them ahead of time — Instead, store your tortillas separately. If you do prefer to assemble and then store your tacos, consider adding the Pico de Gallo right before eating. This will help reduce the amount of moisture that could cause the tortillas to tear.
Breakfast tacos are easy to freeze! I do recommend leaving off the Pico de Gallo when freezing because raw vegetables can sometimes get a funky texture when frozen. To freeze, place assembled tacos flat on a baking sheet.
Freeze for 1-2 hours, then remove from the pan and transfer to a freezer bag. If you’re worried about freezer burn, you could further protect your tacos by wrapping each one twice in plastic wrap before bagging them.
Tacos will last 2-3 months, but the texture is best the earlier you thaw them. Thaw in the fridge overnight for the best texture, but you could also microwave from frozen if you’re in a hurry.
These tacos can be easily reheated in the microwave — I prefer to heat in 45-second bursts on 50% power to make sure things get hot without overcooking. To make sure your tortilla doesn’t get soggy while reheating, place the tacos in between two paper towels before heating.
You can also reheat in the air fryer or oven. Wrap your tacos in aluminum foil, then cook (350 for oven, 325 for air fryer). Heat 5-10 minutes, then open and heat another 1-2 minutes to crisp up any soggy parts of the tortilla.
