I added in some fresh minced garlic when I threw in the onion and I used Johnny's Seasoning Salt in place of real salt. As I made the soft tacos I spread a mix of sour cream/salsa on the tortilla spooned some of the mixture into the tortilla then sprinkled some extra sharp white cheddar cheese on the top. HUGE hit with the family. The boys especially liked these. I made this for breakfast both weekend days. Read More

Oh so delicious! I cooked the onions in with the potatoes until they were translucent and tender too I only used 2 T milk. All I added was picante sauce on mine. I could eat these all the time! I cut this in half. Thanks for sharing this Rhonda! Read More

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 scambling 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) and egg and Top with fresh shredded jack or cheddar cheese and Ranch dressing!

This didn't turn out quite like how I had pictured but it did taste pretty good. It didn't knock my socks off. The problem is the recipe doesn't specify thickness of potatoes which made a big difference in how it turns out. Too thick and they're underdone too thin and they fall apart before you get the eggs in. I also think it would benefit from a little garlic and finely chopped green pepper. Also I added some shredded cheddar cheese inside the tortilla. Final verdict: it's okay but not that special. Read More

i halved this and it would have easily fed 3 people. i cut the potatoes the same size you'd see at a restaurant. and i used unpeeled new potatoes. would probably use fewer potatoes. i also added avocado and cheddar cheese and it was good. would probably be good with a little salsa too. Read More

In South Texas, these taquitos (ta-key-toes) are a regular breakfast for the majority of the folks. You can make your own or buy them at DQ or dozens of other eateries in different meat/cheese/vegie combos in flour tortillas. This looks like a great recipe from a fellow Texan and I intend to try it. Sorry DQ, once in a while I have to cook breakfast for me and the old coot. LOL Thanks for the posting! Read More
