Recipe // baked breakfast taquitos …

November 18, 2013

I am constantly trying to do better about eating breakfast.  Like many, most mornings are rushed, and we are running out the door.  So, I am trying to find some recipes that can be made ahead, and even freeze for when we are in a hurry in the mornings.
I am more of a savory person when it comes to breakfast, I love omelets, breakfast burritos, and the like.  So, breakfast taquitos were right up my alley.  Easy to make, and these ones are baked in the oven to get that nice crispy outer layer of tortilla!
These would be perfect for your Christmas or New Years Day brunch!
{Baked breakfast taquitos}
12 taco size flour tortillas
10 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 tbs water
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp pepper, or to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup monterrey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup chopped red peppers
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup fresh salsa
olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Place 2 tsp olive oil and heat.  Saute the red peppers until soft.  Remove and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk, cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Place in the heated skillet, and scramble the eggs until cooked through.
Place the cooked eggs, red peppers, green onions, fresh salsa, in a bowl.
Fill about 1/4 cup of the egg mixture in the flour tortilla and roll it up not too full.
Place on a parchment paper line baking sheet seam side down, and spray or brush with olive oil on the top of each taquito, and sprinkle with a little sea salt.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden on the top.
Serve with fresh salsa.  Keep in the fridge, and re-heat in the oven. Or freeze for later, and re-heat in the oven.
