Tacos are one of the most important foods in my house. I cook tacos pretty much every week, more than once a week when possible. If it’s edible, I can make a taco out of it!
My Sausage Potato and Egg Breakfast Tacos were created when I had leftover hash in the fridge. I had to find something to do with all that hash, so I created these tasty tacos.
I started off by pre boiling my potatoes to give them a head start. This is a dish you can prepare the day before. Boil the potatoes, refrigerate overnight.
Cook some sausage in a little oil. Season well, mix the sausage and potatoes together, now prepare the eggs.
Trick, boiling the potatoes in advance and chilling makes the potatoes that much crisper when you fry them in oil.
Big Goo says it’s more authentic that way…as if he knows anything about cooking…except barbeque. I’ll save that story for another time…lol!
It really is that simple people…now let’s assemble these babies. I like to load my taco up with avocados, tomatoes, jack, cheddar, and cotija cheese.
And don’t forget some sour cream and hot sauce. Green onions for color.
All done, and ready to eat…it’s delicious people…this is a must make for all taco lovers.
