Easy breakfast ideas
Make a fried egg with toast or eggs scrambled with leftover vegetables.
If you have a little extra time, try these make ahead Spinach & Egg Breakfast Sandwiches or Vegetarian Hash Brown Casserole recipes.
Oatmeal is a go-to breakfast choice. It takes less than 5 minutes in the microwave or try Peach Baked Oatmeal for a crowd.
Make grits and serve with my Baked Salmon Cakes for breakfast or dinner. Whoever came up with the idea of “brinner” (breakfast for dinner) is genius. I’ll take any excuse to eat grits at night.
Best way to reheat tortillas
You can heat tortillas in many ways.
In the microwave wrapped in a damp napkin helps keep the tortillas pliable. Using a dry skillet is easy and still adds a little flavor – particularly to homemade masa/corn tortillas or flour ones.
I am a fan of heating tortillas using a flame – on a gas stove. This is not for everyone and if you do it, do so at your own risk. But that’s how I do it to get a lovely char.

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!
I hear ya! They will be perfect for the weekend though!
I am all for simple and full of flavor. This breakfast is so fun!! Thanks for my new craving of breakfast tacos 🙂
This fits the simple and flavorful requirement for sure. I posted it for breakfast but it’s definitely my go-to lunch!
Being a biabetic and with very out of control sugars, what is the carb count? This recipe sounds very delicious but, I hate to cook especially breakfast. My normal breakfast consists of, 2 slice of 100% whole wheat bread, peanut butter, banana and coffee with equal. It’s fast and easy. I know that I need a variety of nutrients for a safe and healthy diet. Please help me out of this rut. I love the taste of my breakfast but, I need more choices. My kids keeps on me about the same thing every morning.
I’ll update the nutrition information to show the total carbs. However, the main carb in this breakfast is the tortilla. I find 2 soft corn tortillas to suffice.
Based on your description and depending on how many tacos you eat this breakfast will be much lower in carbs than your current breakfast.
