How to make baked breakfast taquitos
For these breakfast taquitos, we are cooking up some scrambled eggs, then rolling in a tortilla and baking them up.
Here’s how to make baked breakfast taquitos:
- Cook scrambled eggs. For this recipe, I keep it simple with eggs, milk, salt and pepper. At the end of cook time, I fold in spinach and feta cheese.
- Roll taquitos. You can use small or medium tortillas. Spoon a few tablespoons of eggs on the tortillas, sprinkle with cheese, roll, and place fold down on a baking sheet.
- Bake taquitos. Timing will depend on the size of your tortillas. For small tortillas, 10 minutes was perfect.
- Enjoy or freeze for later!
How long are these breakfast taquitos good for? In the fridge- up to 4 days. In the freezer- up to 3 months.
How do I thaw baked breakfast taquitos? Thaw overnight in the fridge. You can thaw in the microwave flipping every 30 seconds if you forget to put them in the fridge.
How do I reheat these taquitos? Heat through in the microwave, then crisp up in a pan or a sandwich press. I like my George Foreman grill for this!
What goes well with breakfast taquitos?
Just like my baked beef taquitos, these breakfast taquitos are great with some added toppings:
- salsa, salsa verde or pico de gallo
- fresh tomatoes
- greek yogurt or sour cream
- avocado or guacamole (see how to cut an avocado and not your hand here!)
- more cheese is never a bad idea 😉
