Breakfast Tacos

Okay, so I'm not exactly sure what to call these... They're definitely "breakfasty", but they're filling enough for lunch.. so would that make them Brunch Tacos? In any case, they are delicious, and very easy to make! The cumin in the eggs is my secret ingredient. It adds a subtle smokiness to the dish, and gives it that Mexican flare. I made them for my husband last week for lunch, and we ate them outside in the gorgeous weather!

I'm going through a phase of buying Greek pitas, and eating them all the time. They're not that great straight out of the package, but it's amazing what a little olive oil and a grill pan or griddle can do! They're warm, chewy, and very tasty. Rather reminiscent of a Gordita shell. We've been eating them just as a snack with Schuler's cheese spread, cut into wedges and served with lunch meat, cheddar cheese and mustard for lunch, or paired with thousand island dressing, corned beef and cheese for a Reuben pita.

Pick some up from the grocery store, and you will soon be addicted too!

Breakfast Tacos
Serves 2

  • 2 Greek pitas
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1-2 slices turkey ham, diced
  • 3 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • sour cream, to taste
  • salsa, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cumin, to taste
  • olive oil
  • butter


Heat skillet to med-high, add half a tablespoon of butter and diced turkey ham. Cook until golden brown. Set aside. Whisk eggs and milk together, then scramble with salt, pepper, and cumin to taste. Set aside. Meanwhile, heat grill pan over medium heat. Brush pitas with a little olive oil, and place on grill pan until golden brown, flipping once, about one minute per side. Assemble the tacos: spread some sour cream on the pita, followed by turkey ham, then the scrambled eggs, salsa, and lastly the cheddar cheese. Wrap the bottom half of the pita in foil to keep warm, and so it's easy to eat.
