Why do you love breakfast tacos?

For me, it’s genuine comfort food. They’re quick, they’re filling, you can put practically anything in them and, with a bit of salsa, they start your day with a little kick.

Simple Sausage, Egg and Cheese Taquitos
1 roll of sausage (I like Jimmy Dean All- Natural or Maple Pork Sausage, but any kind works fine)
5–6 eggs 
1⁄2 teaspoon salt 
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper 
1 teaspoon paprika 
8 corn or flour tortillas 
Salsa or hot sauce of your choice 
1⁄2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, American
or any Mexican style you prefer)

Liberate about half of the sausage roll from its container and roll it into small, 1⁄2-inch balls or crumbles and cook on a skillet over medium heat until browned. Put aside.

Crack eggs in a bowl and add salt, pepper and paprika. I like lots of paprika, but you may prefer a little less. Scramble the eggs and begin cooking on a sprayed or oiled pan over medium heat.

Add the sausage to the eggs once they’re cooked, and mix well. Cook the tortillas until they’re brown and firm and fill them with your egg/ sausage mix. Add salsa and cheese and enjoy!
