Don't run out for a fast-food breakfast – it's easy to make at home, and ours tastes great!
Fast food tacos have always been one of my guilty pleasures (especially at 2 a.m.), so I got the chance to create an at-home crunchy breakfast wrap for Tablespoon, I jumped at the idea.
I hadn’t tried the new breakfast offering yet, so of course I had to head to the border and see what all the fuss was about ASAP.
As I sat in my car with the breakfast treat, there were two things going through my head. First, this was the most delicious research I had ever done, and second, this would be very easy to make!
I grabbed everything I needed on the way home and made them for breakfast the next day.
Bake your potatoes about 75% of the way so they still retain some shape and texture when they're turned into hash browns.
The flour, egg, and seasonings mix to form a nice texture that is easily formable but still has nice potato chunks.
Everything gets grilled up in true breakfast fashion.
Place a patty of potato and meat in the center of a tortilla.
The folding is where it starts to get tricky.
Each time you make a fold, grab the where the crease meets the edge of the tortilla and fold that to the middle.
Repeat until you have a nice wrapped up disc. Brown with the seam side down in a little butter to get a nice seal.
This would be a fun thing to make in the morning before a road trip. Just grab and go!
