I like to try all sorts of different things for breakfast on the weekends. For the weekdays it stays pretty boring with either breakfast muffins or breakfast quiche, but when I have more time, I like to switch it up. Today I wanted to try making breakfast tacos with a Romaine lettuce leaf.
Here is the finished product! It actually turned out significantly better than I had imagined.
I started by cooking 4-5 slices of bacon and made some scrambled eggs in bacon grease. For the eggs I just combined 4 eggs, 2 Tbsp of cream, pepper, salt and onion powder. I cook the eggs until they are almost done, turn off the heat, and add cheese.
I love cheese so I threw a slice of cheddar down as well. These romaine lettuce leafs are really convenient because they are practically taco shells by default. I’ve used regular lettuce before but its a lot more work to pull it off the head and not all leafs are useable.
