Breakfast Tacos!

This is one of our favorite breakfasts because it stays with us for a long time (until lunch).  It’s also tasty!

Ingredients:

  • 6 golden potatoes (you could probably get away with 3 russet potatoes if that’s all you have), cubed in small pieces
  • 1 red (or any color) bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1, 12oz package bacon, cut into small pieces and cooked crispy
  • 12 eggs
  • Nature’s seasons seasoning or salt, pepper, garlic powder, and celery salt.

We eat this on tortillas with some cheese and salsa!  I prefer corn tortillas but the rest of the family likes flour.  This is a great, filling breakfast!  And so easy if you prep ahead of time!
