We finally moved into our new house and are beginning to make ourselves at home. Moving is never easy and is especially challenging with two little ones but we are making it work. The first days were a little hairy in terms of schedule and mealtimes and bedtimes were a mess. This is all to be expected so I’m rolling with it but still managing to hold fast to the thing that grounds us as a family—food!
We’re on day four in our new home have managed to have family dinner every night but with so much unpacking still left to do, breakfast has been more grab-and-go. I’m not talking pop-tarts and donuts here, in fact, I’m getting pretty good at whipping up portable breakfasts that keep everyone full and satisfied. Just this AM I made these delicious breakfast Taquitos that were a snap to make and so delicious. They were such a big hit (even for my picky 3-year old) that I already have a request for them tomorrow morning. I’m happy to oblige because they literally took 5 minutes to make and kept them full until lunchtime. Even cooler, these little taquitos are the perfect breakfast to eat on the run or in the car—real food fast!
Customize your taquitos by adding chopped veggies, crispy bacon or your favorite cheese. Stuff, roll and go!
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 teaspoon butter
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 6 small corn tortillas
- Salsa, for dipping

1. Place tortillas onto a microwavable plate and cover them with a damp paper towel. Microwave in 30 second intervals until they are warmed through. Wrap tortillas in foil until ready to use.
2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs together with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour eggs into the skillet and stir slowly until they just set, about 1-2 minutes.
3. Place tortillas onto a flat surface and evenly distribute scrambled eggs and shredded cheese amongst them. Roll each tortilla up tightly and place onto plate seam side down. Serve alongside fresh salsa or ketchup for dipping.
