Last year, I shared this recipe over at Nutmeg Nanny’s blog! And I wanted to share this with my readers in case you missed it! This is a perfect way to start the new year. Use up some leftovers and well eat healthy! My husband and I are big breakfast people, so on the weekends we naturally have large sometimes fancy morning breakfast/brunch. I had a wide variety of taco topping leftovers and a few taco shells left so I decided to make breakfast tacos!
I’ve always only eaten egg whites, so I ran with my idea to create an egg white taco. This is super simple to put together. You can make a large pan of eggs and set all of your toppings out on the counter and let your family and friends build their own breakfast tacos just as they would if it were a traditional dinner time taco bar. I love using the extra-large overstuffed taco shells because you can fit a lot more in them. Typically you will use 3/4 of an egg per extra-large taco shell. I never thought to mix my egg whites with guacamole. The flavors work well together, trust me! Next time your hosting brunch–switch it up and make an egg taco bar!
