Breakfast Taco

This recipe comes from surprisingly...Me and my own brain. I really really like these and so did everyone in my whole family! That is a rare treat when everyone eats my food instead of a bowl of cereal. These taste like Breakfast Burritos, India style.

6 -7 Sausage Patties. (I used precooked but uncooked would taste better
5-6 med. Potatoes
3 Eggs
2T. Garlic
2T. Butter or margarine
1 1/2 t. Cumin
3/4 t. Garam Masala (this is sold at most grocery stores I get mine at Walmart)
1/2 t. Turmeric
Salt/Pepper to taste
Handful of Cheese
Corn Tortillas
Oil for frying

  1. Microwave potatoes until soft
  2. While potatoes are cooking, heat up sausage, or cook all the way if your not using precooked patties
  3. Cut sausage into bite size pieces. Leave grease in the pan from the sausage
  4. When potatoes are done cut into bite size pieces and add to pan. You could remove the sausage from the pan at this point, I just push it to the side and keep it in the pan
  5. Add butter, Brown potatoes until mostly crispy
  6. Push everything to the side of the pan and add eggs, scramble
  7. Add garlic and all of spices
  8. Mix until spices are fully incorporated
  9. Add cheese, stir until melted.
  10. Cover and keep warm until ready to eat
  11. Fry corn shells in oil just until soft  about 30 seconds or so.
  12. Serve potato mixture in tortilla with fresh salsa. Delicious-o

Caprese Salad

My Friend Holly Grow and I made this one up today. I was a little nervous trying it, it could have tasted like crap.  We were both surprised that is was delicious, in fact I can't wait until I make more tomorrow. Breakfast isn't to early for a salad, right?

1/2 Romaine Lettuce
10 Leaves, Fresh Basil (don't use dried it won't work)
2 Tomatoes, chopped
1/4 Cucumber, chopped
1/4 C Mozzarella, shredded
2 T. Parmesan, grated
Croutons, I used garlic & cheese
1/4 C Balsamic Vinegar
2 T Brown Sugar
1/4 t. Garlic Powder
Salt/Pepper to taste
3/4 C Olive or Vegetable oil

  1. Chop lettuce, add Basil, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Croutons
  2. Mix together in a jar Vinegar, Brown Sugar, Garlic Powder, Salt & Pepper and Oil. Put on lid and shake vigorously until sugar and salt is dissolved.
  3. Pour dressing on and enjoy.
  4. This made enough for 2 people as a meal.
