Leftover Taco Breakfast Scramble

This morning I opened up my fridge, as I do most mornings.  I'm not sure what I expected to see, since I'm the one that does the shopping and the cooking and I know exactly what is in my fridge all of the time.  But today for some reason it dawned on me how many leftovers we have - ALL OF THE TIME!!!  Seriously.

Now, that may not seem like a bad thing, but sometimes it's so hard to reheat something and eat it again.  Today our leftovers consisted of rice, bbq pulled pork, and stuff for tacos.  Hmmm....pass.   I grabbed the eggs and the butter and thought I would just scramble some eggs for breakfast.  But then I decided I wanted an omelette or something and I didn't have any ham, so I grabbed the chopped onions and taco meat and scrambled them all together with my eggs.  It was so amazingly good.  And that got me thinking.  What else can I revamp my leftovers into?  Stay tuned.  I think this might be a fun challenge for me.

Leftover Taco Breakfast Scramble

2 eggs
1 TBSP butter
1/4 c chopped onion
1/4 c leftover taco meat

Melt butter in a frying pan.  Then add onion and cook till tender, about 1 minute.  Next add your eggs, scramble them while cooking.  Add taco meat and cook till eggs are done and meat is warmed through.  Salt and pepper to taste.

I added tomatoes, avocados and cheese after my eggs were cooked.  You could also heat up some re fried beans.

 Do any of  you have a really great revamped leftover recipe?  We would love to hear about it.
Pin It!
