Tortillas for breakfast? Yes please. They’re easy to prepare, super versatile and you can eat them on the go. My version of “on the go” means being ready to chase an active toddler around the house.
This one’s just a simple eggs and tomatoes tortilla. I use the whole-wheat tortilla being sold at French Baker. Their tortillas have just the right amount of thickness. I can stuff it with a bunch of stuff and it won’t tear, but it’s not super thick that tortilla is all I taste once I take a bite. Yes, put it on your grocery list — whole wheat tortillas from French Baker! (No, this is not a sponsored post from said bakery).
What goes in my tortillas depends on what’s for breakfast (which I don’t dictate). I like not knowing what’s for breakfast the next day so it makes the tortilla a surprise! Can you guess what’s in the next breakfast tortilla?
Yup, it’s corned beef with onions and diced potatoes plus scrambled eggs. Delicioso!
One time, breakfast was danggit (fried fish). Would it taste good in a tortilla?, I wondered.
Of course it did! Anything’s yummy in a tortilla!
I put too much filling though so this ended up like a danggit taco instead. Now can you guess what’s in the next breakfast tortilla?
Yeah, yeah, it looks weird but that’s tortang talong! Yummy with catsup.
This one’s peppered eggs and tomatoes — literally sprinkled with black pepper just so it’d have a different taste profile from the first one I had. Yummy too!
Now this next one fell apart! I put too much of the meat but it was super delicious too!
That’s longganisa with fried egg and tomatoes. Yummeh! Now what if a single egg is all you have? That works too!
But if you’ve got other stuff on the breakfast table, go pile it on! Here’s some breakfast sardines on that solo egg.
Breakfast tortillas are so fun to eat! They’re fun to assemble too. You just pile stuff onto the tortilla, roll it up and hope it doesn’t ooze out the other end when you take a bite. Best of all, you can eat them while you’re on the move AND with one hand. I think it’s the perfect breakfast for busy folks, especially busy Moms!
I want to try a breakfast fruit tortilla next or adobo in my tortilla next time. What would YOU like to put in your tortilla? Do share!
