How to Make Crispy Potatoes
I used baby Yukon potatoes, but red potatoes or russet will work, as well.
The important part is in the preparation of these potatoes. I prefer to roast my potatoes in the oven since they always turn out perfectly crispy.
Start by washing the potatoes and dice them into small, even chunks. You can leave the skin on if you prefer.
Then season the potatoes with some oil, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika for a little heat.
Spay a sheet pan with some oil and spread the potatoes on an even layer.
Roast at 375 F degrees for 25 min, flipping them over halfway through.
Check on the potatoes, if you want them more crispy, continue cooking for 5 minute increments until desired crispness is reached.
How to Make Soft Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs, something so simple but when overcooked can really ruin them!
Once I learned how to cook scrambled eggs low and slow, I was hooked. They turn out so soft, fluffy, and flavorful.
I start by adding a little butter to a skillet then turn it on medium low and allow it to heat up for 2 min. I beat the eggs and add a splash of water. The water evaporates and allows the eggs to turn out fluffy without adding any milk.
Then turn the pan to low, add the beaten eggs, and just occasionally move the eggs around the pan with a spatula. Once they start to firm up, turn off the heat and leave them in the skillet to keep warm until you're ready to serve.
How to Assemble the Potato and Egg Tacos
Start by warming up your flour tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds, or heat corn tortillas on a dry skillet on the stove.
Don't skip this step- cold tortillas will ruin your taco!
Then add a layer of the soft scrambled eggs and top with crispy potatoes.
Top the potato and egg tacos with a few dollops of Green Mountain Gringo® Medium Salsa, and thinly sliced avocado.
It's a breakfast meal that's delicious any time of day!
Can the Potato and Egg Tacos be frozen?
Yes! These tacos can be made ahead of time and freeze for a quick breakfast or meal another day.
Cook the potatoes and eggs as stated in the recipe. Then assemble them either in corn, small flour, or burrito size tortillas for a larger portion.
Wrap each taco or burrito tightly with plastic wrap and place in a freezer safe zip top bag. Don't add the salsa or avocado, they need to be added after the tacos are reheated.
To reheat, remove from the plastic and microwave for 1-2 minutes, depending on the size of the taco.
Once heated, add the Green Mountain Gringo® Medium Salsa and avocado and enjoy!
