Hot breakfast Mexican style: Breakfast Bacon Taco
What do you get when you cross Mexican food design with a breakfast from your favorite diner? This next recipe sums it up. It's got all the flavor of a bacon and eggs breakfast served up in the form of a taco. Eating on the run has never been easier!
- 12 slices of bacon
- 2 eggs
- 2 oz cheese
- chives as garnish
And some tools:
- 2 glasses
- 3 skewers
- Lay the bacon slices on parchment paper to form a weaved mat by first laying six in one direction and then laying six across the top, alternating above and below the other slices. Bake the bacon mat for 12 minutes at 355°F. When it's done, use a bowl to help you cut out a circle.
- Use the two glasses to make a stand and lay the skewers on top of them. You may have to tie the skewers together. Hang the circle of bacon over the skewers and put the whole thing in the microwave. Cook for two minutes at 550W. This will give the bacon its taco shape and should hold when it cools.
- Prepare the scrambled eggs by beating them in a bowl and adding the cheese. Fry the mix in a pan. When it's done, use it to fill the bacon taco and garnish with some chopped chives.
What better way to start your day than with a hearty breakfast that you can eat with your hands? And if you want to keep with the Mexican theme, try adding some salsa to your scrambled eggs. Now that's a good morning... buenos días!
