These Mexican Inspired Eggs are rolled up in perfect bite-sized Breakfast Taquitos with lots of cheese and a link of sausage. We made ours using mini tortillas for a more bite-sized, snack-y option, but just double up on your sausage links and eggs if you’re using full size tortillas. These are so good dipped in salsa and won’t last long, we recommend doubling the recipe if you have a group to feed!
Ingredients (serves 10)
5 large Noah’s Pride eggs, scrambled
sausage links, fully cooked
1 ½ cup shredded cheese
1 cup baby spinach, if desired
- Start by warming your tortillas on a hot skillet or griddle for a few seconds on each side.
- Divide your scrambled eggs among the tortillas and top with shredded cheese.
- Add sausage links and spinach, if desired, and roll up the tortilla. Place each taquito, seam side down, on a parchment lined baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking oil.
- Bake at 425°F for 10-15 minutes or until the tortillas start to get golden brown. Serve with salsa and enjoy hot!
This classic Mexican dish may be the most authentic of our Mexican Inspired Eggs! For those of you have prefer a savory breakfast as opposed to a sweet one, this dish features a crispy, fried tortilla and homemade Ranchero sauce which makes the recipe! Since Huevos Rancheros is a little bit more involved than some of the other recipes we’ve compiled, we recommend saving this one for a weekend brunch when you’re not in a hurry to get out the door.

2 shallots, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

Mexican Egg & Cheese Quesadilla
The last of our Mexican Inspired Eggs is this Egg & Cheese Quesadilla. Not only are they healthy and delicious, but they also are so simple to make! What makes these quesadillas extra delicious, is getting a nice, crispy and golden-brown sear on each side before slicing and digging in. Plus, these are great on their own or dipped into salsa or sour cream if you prefer!
Ingredients (serves 2)
4 large Noah’s Pride eggs
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tsp oil
¼ cup black beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup shredded cheese
- In a bowl, beat eggs and salt, stir in cilantro.
- Heat oil in a pan over medium heat before adding in half of your whisked eggs. Tilt and move the pan so that the eggs evenly cover the bottom, then let the omelet set for 20-seconds.
- Sprinkle some beans into the omelet and using a spatula, gently run around the edge of the omelet, lifting, and loosening it away from the pan.
- Once the eggs start to set, sprinkle 2 tbsp of cheese on the top of the omelet and place a tortilla on top. Carefully flip the omelet, so that the tortilla side is face down in the pan and repeat the cheese and tortilla layer to the other side, now face up.
- Allow the quesadilla to cook for about 1 minute before flipping again. Press down slightly with the spatula to help melt the cheese and crisp the tortillas.
- Once cooked to your liking, plate and slice your quesadilla into wedges. Serve up with salsa and sour cream for dipping and enjoy!
