  • 250g (9 oz) breakfast sausage
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 small flour or corn tortillas
  • 100g (3.5 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salsa, for serving
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Method of Preparation

  1. Cook the Sausage: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the breakfast sausage, breaking it into small pieces with a spatula, until browned and cooked through, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Scramble the Eggs: In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and black pepper. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs are scrambled and fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Warm the Tortillas: Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds on each side, or until they are pliable and heated through. Keep them warm in a clean kitchen towel.
  4. Assemble the Tacos: Divide the scrambled eggs and cooked sausage evenly among the tortillas. Top with shredded cheddar cheese, avocado slices, diced tomato, red onion, and fresh cilantro.
  5. Serve: Serve the breakfast tacos with salsa and lime wedges on the side. Enjoy immediately.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • For extra flavor, try using chorizo sausage instead of breakfast sausage.
  • Warm the tortillas just before serving to ensure they stay soft and pliable.
  • Customize your toppings with your favorite ingredients like jalapeños, sour cream, or hot sauce.
