Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Tacos Brunch

A great casual brunch where everyone get to customize there breakfast taco. Good also if you family arrives for breakfast in shifts. The clay will help keep the eggs warm.

6 chopped potatoes

1/4 C of oil

2 T olive oil

1/4 of  a chopped onion

6 eggs

1/2 a tomato chopped

1 crushed clove of garlic

1/2 t of mexican oregano

1/2 C of grated cheese of your choice - cheddar, monterary jack, gouda

1/2 a chopped Jalepeno

1/2 t of salt to taste

1/2 t of pepper

Roasted potatoes

Roast the chopped potatoes in some oil until cooked and slightly brown. Drain on a paper towel and keep warm. Set the potatoes aside in a small bowl for serving.

Saute the onion in 2 T of olive oil until they are a little wilted.  Meanwhile add the eggs, cilantro, tomatoe, cheese, garlic, jalapeno, and seasonings. Mix with the onions and scramble.  Cook to your desired egg texture.

While the eggs are cooking, heat the tortilla in a pan or comal or put the tortillas in the microwave or oven.

Scrambled Mexican Eggs

Serve the tortillas with the egg and additional fillers of your choice. A Salsa (try this quick one http://creativeclaycooking.com/?p=55  )would be enough but you can offer scallions, peppers, beans, rice, cilantro, sour cream, avocados and sliced radishes.

Egg Souffle

Egg Souffle

Separate 6 eggs. Put the egg whites in a mixing bowl and whip at high speed.
Add seasoning, salt, pepper and oregano to the yokes and whip until blended.
Fold in the yoke mixture into the whites.
Pour into a oven proof greased pan… blackware chicken in this case.
Heat on stove for about 3 min on low, then place in pre heated 350 degree oven for about 25 mins or until souffle rises and forms a crusty top.

I used my favorite La Chamba blackware clay Chicken pan. Makes a very pretty presentation for brunch and I found the souffle puffed right up and fit this pan very well. More about the Chicken Pan.

Serve immediately with your favorite cheese sauce

I used 1/2 stick of butter, 1/4 C whipping cream and 1/3 C Cabot Sharp Cheddar Cheese, melted in a double boiler… made one from a soup bowl purched over a clay oval pot.
