Tacos you can have for breakfast! Loaded with roasted butternut squash chunks, crunchy cabbage, spicy salsa, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and guacamole to start your day off right! Vegetarian.
Who doesn’t love tacos, they’re easy to make and delicious! So, it got me thinking, how could I transform them into a breakfast dish? Obviously, they would need at least one breakfast staple, like scrambled eggs.
This past week, I’ve been making all things pumpkin, squash, or orange….I’ve been a bit obsessed with fall inspired recipes. So, why not use my favorite roasted butternut squash bites as the “meaty” part of the taco. Sounds like a delicious idea to me!
These butternut squash chunks are sweet and spicy, the best of both worlds! The best part is the caramelized edges, I flip them halfway through roasting, so you get both sides to be caramelized!
The easiest way I’ve found to prepare butternut squash is to cook it whole, on a baking sheet, for 25 minutes. Skin it, remove the seeds, and cut it into chunks. While the squash chunks are cooking, cook your scrambled eggs.
Okay, now that you have your scrambled eggs, and the butternut squash chunks, it’s time for the fun part! Let’s build these breakfast tacos!
How to Make Breakfast Tacos!
Start with one tortilla and add:
- Scrambled eggs or scrambled tofu
- Roasted butternut squash
- Pace salsa
- Thinly sliced red cabbage
- Green onions
Doesn’t that look delicious? I love all the different flavors and textures that are in the tacos. You have creamy guac, spicy Pace salsa, sweet butternut squash, crunchy cabbage, and a little bite from the green onions. It doesn’t get any better then this, I’m tellin’ ya! I make these breakfast tacos a few times a month, and I never hear any complaints. It’s all smiles when these tacos are on the table!
