Sure, breakfast tacos make sense for breakfast, but if you’re a fan of having breakfast for dinner like me, then why not enjoy them for your last meal of the day? These breakfast tacos are incredibly easy to throw together when you need dinner in a pinch.

While some scrambled eggs are made with milk, I find that scrambling up the eggs and cooking them with a little butter on a skillet works fine enough. Adding milk (or even a soft cheese) will make the eggs fluffier, but my personal preference is to cook without; it works just as well.

This recipe will make four tacos, one egg accounting for each taco. If you would like to make more breakfast tacos for a crowd, add an egg for each taco you’re making. So if you’re making 12 tacos, grab a large skillet and crack open 12 eggs.

While it’s common to choose ground beef or chicken for taco night, eggs are a great protein option as well. Eggs can help boost your metabolism and energy levels, while being incredibly beneficial for your health. Your eyes, teeth, and even your hair will all positively benefit from a serving of eggs. Because eggs also have a high protein content, they can help you feel fuller for longer.

This taco recipe can be made many other ways! You can even spruce up the tacos with some vegetables, including spinach and mushrooms. Or if you’re not a fan of bacon, you could sprinkle in chunks of ham or breakfast sausage instead.

This recipe has salsa and taco cheese as a topping, but feel free to make it your own! Choose your favorite type of salsa (or hot sauce) to go on top, as well as your favorite cheese.
