Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb russet potatoes diced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 6 flour tortillas

Optional Toppings

  • cheddar cheese shredded
  • Grape tomatoes sliced
  • Cilantro diced
  • salsa

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet with the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the diced potato, add the salt and paprika. Stir to combine. Allow to cook for about 8-10 minutes (stirring only a few times to prevent sticking but allowing them to get crispy) until the potatoes are softened and slightly crispy on the outside. Remove the potatoes to a plate and set aside.
  • In the same skillet add the bacon and allow to cook for about 5-7 minutes until crispy. Remove to a plate and dry with paper towels. Cut slices in half.
  • In a medium size bowl beat the eggs with the milk and mix in the salt and pepper.
  • Spray a small skillet with non-stick spray. Pour in the egg mixture. Stir occasionally while the eggs cook to scramble them.
  • Layer the tortillas with the breakfast potatoes, bacon and scrambled eggs. Top with any additional toppings. Serve warm and enjoy.

  • Gluten Free option: use GF tortillas.
