  • 4 Large Flour Tortillas Warmed in Microwave till soft, about 20-30 seconds
  • 6 Large Eggs Scrambled
  • 8 Slices of Bacon
  • 1/2 Cup Mexican shredded Cheese Blend


  1. Start by pre heating your oven to 400 degrees, and let it pre heat for a few minutes after the signal goes off to ensure it’s at that temperature.

  2. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and fold over on the sides, then place the rack on top. Place your bacon on the rack, the strips can be close touching, since it will shrink a bit while cooking. Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on how crispy you want the bacon. It will get crispier after it cools. Save about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease for the eggs, or more if you want to use for other cooking.

  3. In a non stick skillet, add the bacon grease in the pan and heat over medium low heat for about a minute. Crack eggs, whisk aggressively, and pour into pan. There should be No sizzling! If it’s sizzling, your pan is too hot. It will seem like the eggs are not cooking, but gently move your spatula around the pan every 30 seconds or so, and you will see the eggs start to cook. Turn off the heat right before they are fully cooked, season with salt and pepper, give one more turn, and place into tortillas.

  4. Warm flour tortillas in the microwave till soft, about 20-30 seconds. Place scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon slices in tortilla and wrap tightly. I like to spice it up with some salsa, hot sauce, or avocado too.
