Are you a breakfast person? Sure it’s the most important meal of the day but honestly, how many people eat breakfast based on that simple fact alone? I know I should but lets be honest, I don’t.
Even with this said, not everyone is a breakfast person. Myself, I am..sorta. The simple fact is, I love mornings but am not a morning person; therefore it’s worth saying, I love breakfast, but not making it. Unless of course it’s closer to 11sies and then really brunch.
How sad and shameful to have a blog concentrically rotating around food and admitting you don’t like to cook something. Eh, I’m human. It’s nice to remember that sometimes.
On occasion I DO cook breakfast, but when I DO it has to be something quick because by the time I am adequately functioning enough to actually COOK breakfast, Mr.Sweet Butter ( who is an outrageously early morning person ) is usually famished and adamantly convinced He is dying of starvation. I’m happy to assure him it’s highly unlikely, but it’s simply does not merit rebuttal.
This is one of those breakfasts that can be prepared relatively quickly, ( about 30 minutes ) and works beautifully on those rare occasions when the planets align and Mr.SB and I are on a kinda-sorta-same morning schedule.
Wanna know how easy, watch, or read actually.
Cook bacon to just before crisp.
Cut tortillas to fit snugly in mini tart pans, muffin tins, ramekins, whatever is on hand.
Remove bacon and quickly cook cut tortillas in bacon grease, both sides.
Slap tortillas in pans, layer with bacon and anything else that suits your fancy. Add egg.
Cook 25 minutes in oven on 350
Done and dine.
See, easy. I don’t have to get up too too early and Mr. Sweet Butter lives another day.
Or at least until the next meal.
- 2-3 Tortillas (depending on overall size of baking pans)
- 4 eggs
- 8 strips of bacon
- Veggies of choice, sliced
- Cook bacon on medium low heat thoroughly, just before the crispy stage. Remove from pan & set aside.
- While bacon is cooking, cut tortillas into circles approximately ½ to 1 inch larger than the diameter of the pan being used. (individual tart shells, muffin tins or ramekins are best).
- Place tortilla circles in hot bacon grease and cook about 20 seconds on each side.
- Fit tortillas to sides of pans to create bowls or shell shapes.
- Layer bacon and veggies inside shells.
- Top with uncooked egg.
- Bake in 350 degree oven or toaster oven for 25-30 minutes.
