Cheese makes this nice and gooey, but feel free to omit it. This is great on the weekends, with a side of Sweet Potato Hash.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
Yield: Serves 2
2 eggs, whisked until smooth
2 rice tortillas (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
2 tsp. grapeseed oil, butter or butter substitute (Earth Balance)
2 pieces turkey or regular bacon, cooked and crumbled optional or replace with veggies
1/2 c. shredded cheddar or jack cheese optional
salsa and guacamole if desired
cilantro for garnish
- Heat oil or butter in a skilled and scramble eggs until desired doneness. Because they will get another heating, I like to slightly undercook the eggs. Remove eggs and set aside.
- Using a heavy bottomed skillet (I use cast iron), add 1 tsp. olive oil. When hot, set a tortilla in skillet and cover with egg, cheese and crumbled bacon. Top with remaining tortilla.
- Heat for 3 minutes per side on medium heat.
- Slice into 6 slices, like a pizza and serve with a sprinkle of cilantro and a side of salsa and guacamole.
If you want to make this vegetarian, simply omit the bacon and add sauteed vegetables like onions, scallions, broccoli and peppers.
