Easy Egg Avocado Breakfast Tacos

Y’all. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It’s easy, versatile and allows me to go totally off script. And I love whoever came up with the idea of “brinner” (breakfast for dinner). This is a legitimate excuse to eat grits at night. What’s not to love about that?!

Breakfast can never be boring for me but when I saw this month’s recipe redux theme to break out of breakfast boredom, I got a little excited. Lots of ideas swirled about my head but I decided to share one of my go to breakfast recipes.

Though oatmeal is my go-to breakfast, many mornings eggs grace my table. I may have a fried egg with toast or eggs scrambled with leftover vegetables. I love tacos about as much as I love breakfast so why not put the two together?

My Easy Egg & Avocado Breakfast Tacos are one of my favorite ways to have eggs. I have these for breakfast but also for lunch when I’m working from home and want something quick – which is all the time.

    Love breakfast tacos! Truth be told, I never make them during the week because I don't have time to take out a skillet, but we will be making these on the weekend! Reply
