It doesn't have to be Tuesday to get excited about breakfast tacos. We love these hand-held munchies so much, we can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whether you go minimalist, or pile on, there's one thing all these top-rated, morning-style tacos have in common. They're going to disappear in a hurry. But that's cool. Less mess to clean up after feasting.

"I've been making these for breakfast on a weekly basis. My kids even make them! To cut the time in half to prepare I microwave the bacon, skip the onion, then bake the potato in the microwave while scrambling the eggs in the pan. To assemble: cut open potato and scoop into tortilla. Crumple bacon (sometimes we use ground sage sausage in place of the bacon), add egg, and top with fresh shredded Jack or Cheddar cheese and ranch dressing!" —GodivaGirl

"Delicious and very simple to make," says reviewer B. Fields. "I nuked the potatoes for 4.5 minutes in the microwave to speed everything up and the meal was on the table in less than 1/2 an hour. I used soy chorizo as it's the only type my grocer had and added a bit more olive oil for cooking because of that — and it worked perfectly."
