Bacon & Egg Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Tacos

Bacon Egg Breakfast Tacos are a delicious way to spice up those weekend mornings, and also work as a breakfast for dinner night. I love a perfectly poached egg. For me the whites should be completely cooked, while the yolk should be just thickened but still a little drippy.

Perfect Egg Poaching

My hubby has a special egg poaching pan that he likes to use when he’s on breakfast duty. His poached eggs are always perfectly round and pretty. But me, I prefer to use a plain old skillet and plop the eggs straight in. Mostly because I really don’t like having to wash and dry all of those little cups.  I do admit though, that the poaching pan is handy when you are poaching a lot of eggs at once. Non Stick is the only way to go. I love poached eggs because there’s no oil or grease. Having to add butter or oil defeats the purpose.

If you add a little splash of vinegar to your poaching water, the eggs won’t feather out as much. If they do spread out too much, and you want to be fancy, you can trim them. Or, you can just eat them anyway. We certainly would.

Assemble Tacos and Fixings Ahead of Time

These bacon egg breakfast tacos are super simple to make. Who needs anything more complicated when you’re hungry? The tricky part is timing. You want the tacos assembled and ready for the eggs as soon as they are cooked. Otherwise, you’ll have overcooked eggs and nobody wants that.

So do your prep and cook the bacon ahead of time to set aside. Have all your tomatoes and avocados sliced up and ready. If you have a tortilla warmer, use that, but heating the tortillas on a griddle is handy for feeding a crowd. A covered skillet over low heat works, too. Or just wrap them up in foil and put them in the oven to warm. It’s also fun to get everyone in on making these, assembly line style.

  1. That poached egg looks perfect! My husband is the egg “whisperer” in our household. He is in “egg” duty. As for me, I am still not used to eggs at breakfast, so when I have one, it is at lunch time and I usually boil it and add it to salads. But I like the idea of this taco (minus the bacon for me). It would make a nice alternative to our breakfasts when the kids are in (and they would love it!).

    1. Hi Nicoletta, thank you about the poached egg, because my husband is also the egg whisperer in our house. But I do sometimes step in. I made this for our kids and they loved it!

  2. Girrrrrl. I keep meaning to make breakfast tacos, and for some reason, it keeps slipping my mind! This post is reminding me of just why I need to get on that. This looks delish and that poached egg is perfection!

  3. Oh man, I love tacos any time of day — but I never would have thought to make them for breakfast. This is a great idea and they look so scrumptious!
