BREAKFAST tortilla cup

We typically eat different foods at different times of the day. But why should that be so? Who made eggs best to eat at breakfast? I really don’t know but I’m not really arguing either. Don’t get me wrong, we eat eggs all throughout the day. My latest fav is the runny fried egg that my husband tops our chicken fried rice with. Yet, I appreciate eggs the most at breakfast.

Breakfast is often people’s most favorite meal of the day. Personally, I think it’s because normally it’s not a meal we put much effort into so when we do, it seems so much more decadent without too much effort.

Kind of like this little gem. This is barely a recipe. It was so easy to put together, I used whatever I found in my fridge, and then it sat in the oven while I tided up and drank my glorious iced cappuccino. And yet, when my husband came downstairs last week to see this little guy resting on the counter, his eyes lit up and he asked what was this little bowl of happiness and what made today so special that it got made?

This is more of an idea than a recipe. After the tortilla and the eggs, you can put in anything you want. I love onions so I add them anywhere I can but of course if you don’t want onion breath so early in the day, leave them out. Next time I’m going to try mushrooms and poblano pepper which is easy to find here and a staple in our fridge. Great thing is, because they’re so versatile you can make each one individualized for every person at your breakfast table.

Try this “idea” your way and add any ingredients that will put a smile on your face for the rest of the day!


  • 1 small flour or corn tortilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked and diced

  • 1 TAB chopped onion or green onion
  • 1 TAB diced tomatoes
