Good Monday! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. We had a pretty quiet one. It was about 576 degrees outside, so much of it was spent in the house.
Anyway, I saw the original recipe for this on Pinterest and it looked awesome. I did change a few things to suit my personal tastes though (this is a super adaptable recipe, so feel free to add or subtract anything you may like).
For instance, I have never purchased 'skin on pork belly' before, and I'm not planning to start purchasing it any time soon, so I changed that to the sausage crumbles. You can of course just buy a package of ground sausage and brown it up, but I like the Jimmy Dean crumbles because they're already cooked and crumbled...and I'm lazy.
Also, I don't know what Mexican crema is, or cotija, so I went with regular 'ol sour cream and left out the cotija altogether (I still don't know what it is...I should probably google it). Overall though, I really liked this! It turns out I'm not a huge fan of corn tortillas, so next time I make this (which will be in about 10 minutes...as soon as I'm done writing this post), I'll use flour tortillas instead.
Have a great day!
'Sausage and Egg Scramble Tacos'
Source: Heavily adapted from From Away
1/3 cup Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 green onions, sliced
1 tomato, diced
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 small corn (or flour) tortillas, warm
1. In a small bowl whisk eggs, salt and pepper together until smooth. Heat a medium skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-low heat.
2. Add eggs and cook slowly, dragging a spatula across the bottom of the skillet as the eggs begin to solidify. Add sausage and shredded cheese and continue slowly scraping eggs and sausage around the skillet until desired doneness is reached (about 2-4 minutes)
3. Warm corn tortillas in microwave just before preparing (about 12 seconds).
4. Place a few spoonfuls of egg on each tortilla. Top with green onion, tomato, sour cream and hot sauce.
