Breakfast Tacos

How are you doing with your resolutions?

I haven't used my credit card yet. YAY!

It was kind of easy last week. Despite the Take An Extra 25% Off Sale Items at, there wasn't anything I really wanted to purchase. 

I must be more selective on how I spend my dollars.

We had a really nice weekend. I made breakfast and set the table Sunday morning. I haven't done that in awhile. 

I cooked up one pound of turkey sausage for this recipe. I made just enough tacos for us two to eat, and I froze the rest of the cooked sausage for a future use.

I cooked the sausage low and slow because I didn't want brown, crispy edges. You can see the sausage here draining on some paper towels. Turkey, cutting the fat is January.

Breakfast Tacos for Two

  • 1/2 pound turkey sausage, cooked
  • 5 corn tortillas
  • 1 Tbsp butter, salted
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1/3 cup red pepper, diced, optional*
  • hot sauce, optional
  • Serve with your choice of fruit.

Go ahead and cook the turkey sausage. I think it took about 15 minutes. I didn't keep track. Just keep breaking it up and making sure there aren't any pink pieces. Chop up the red pepper. Drain it on a paper towel. Wipe out the pan.

Turn down the heat so you don't over scramble your eggs. Break your eggs into a small bowl and whisk with the milk. Add the unsalted butter to the pan and the red pepper. Cook for about five minutes then add the scrambled eggs. Add the sausage back to the pan with the eggs once they're cooked. Warm up the corn tortillas in the microwave and fill with the egg sausage mixture. 

*I decided not to buy red pepper. It was $2.79 at Harris Teeter. For one pepper. Overpriced? Yes. The red peppers at Wal-Mart were old and wrinkling. I was going to hold out for a trip to Trader Joe's, but forgot this recipe was planned for Sunday morning, and I wouldn't be going there until at least Tuesday after work. So, no. NO RED PEPPER IN THE TACOS FOR US.

Our spread with some sliced pear. I love love love using champagne flutes for orange juice. 

My taco doused with lots of cholula.
