How To Make Breakfast Taquitos

Prep – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or a baking mat.

Eggs – Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs to the hot skillet and cook, folding over with a rubber spatula to scramble, until they are nearly done. Add salt and pepper to taste and then remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

Taquito Prep – Divide the eggs evenly between the tortillas, arranging them in a line down the center of each tortilla. Divide the cheddar cheese between the tortillas. Add a sausage link to the center of each tortilla, then roll each one up. Place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.

Cook – Bake the taquitos for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden and crisp.  Serve them warm with a side of sour cream and salsa for dipping.

Store – Place any leftovers in a Ziploc bag and stick them in the fridge.  They’ll stay good for about 5 days.

Make Ahead – If you want to make a bigger batch to keep them on hand for later, this recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or more!  You can leave these in the freezer for about 2 months and just grab pull out what you need, when you need them.

Recipe Variation

Other Proteins – I made my taquitos with turkey breakfast sausage, but you could easily substitute pork sausage, bacon, or even sautéed vegetables. Just layer all of your ingredients in the center of each tortilla, then roll them up tightly. Bake until crisp, and then enjoy those melty, gooey, delicious taquitos!

Fresh Tortillas – There’s nothing better than a freshly made tortilla.  If you have a little extra time, you should try using our Homemade Tortilla recipe with this recipe.
