breakfast tacos

breakfast tacos, originally uploaded by riptideredsf.
This is crazy simple and soooo favorite breakfast inspired by this recipe from Heidi at 101 Cookbooks.
Of course, hers is much healthier than this particular concoction of leftover burrito filling and processed american cheese.
The filling can be almost anything with a little bit of cheese to bind it all together. I start by heating up about a tablespoon of olive oil and a small pat of butter in a small non-stick pan, not much bigger than the tortilla. Beat a couple of eggs, then pour about one third of the eggs into the hot pan, moving the egg mixture around the pan to contain it to roughly the same size as your tortilla.
Let it set for a minute and add a couple of grinds of pepper and pinch of salt.

Drop the tortilla on top of the egg and cook for another minute giving the egg a chance to adhere to the tortilla, then flip the whole thing over,

 add your cheese and give it a minute to warm up and melt a bit, then add your final filler.

If I use leftovers that I've pulled from the fridge, I'll heat it up in the microwave first.

My healthier version is to use one whole egg and one egg white, goat cheese and fresh herbs.
