Sausage & Egg Breakfast Tacos

A little over a year ago I posted a recipe on how to make potato & egg breakfast tacos. To my surprise, this is the most watched video on my YouTube channel. So I am going to try to share more recipes on how to make other varieties of breakfast tacos, and I hope you will enjoy this! 🙂 There are three basic steps, make tortillas, make the filling, and put the filling in the taco. 🙂 Oh yeah, and eat the taco hehe

So sausage & egg tacos are no different. You can start by making tortillas, or cooking the sausage, whichever you prefer. You can even warm up the tortillas as the last step. I wrote a recipe (below) on how I make these tacos and made a video to go along with it. I hope you like this recipe, and I do encourage you to either buy freshly made tortillas and salsa, or make homemade tortillas and salsa, it makes a huge difference in flavor.

The recipe makes 3 tacos, but just remember you need 1 egg per taco, and 1 sausage link per 3 tacos, so if you want to make more tacos then just make more eggs and sausages according to how many tacos you want to make. 🙂 I hope that makes sense!

French Toast

French Toast is commonly served as a breakfast food in the United States, and is a dish made in other countries as well. I think the more common way to eat french toast in the U.S. is with powdered sugar and honey on top, but my mom always made it with cinnamon & sugar as the topping, so that is the recipe I am sharing today. 🙂

French Toast is basically a slice of bread, dipped in egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon, fried in a pan, with sprinkled cinnamon & sugar on top. It is actually very easy to make, and can be made with whatever bread you think might be good. I got a little bit fancy here and made it with leftover homemade cinnamon swirl bread. Sounds like a cinnamon overload, but it really wasn’t. 🙂

The recipe is below. It makes 3 servings, but if you have a large family, you can easily double or triple the recipe. As far as the cinnamon & sugar topping, just sprinkle the amount you want on top of the bread, you don’t have to use the entire amount for three slices of bread. I usually just have some already mixed up on hand.

Let me know in the comments, how do you like to eat French Toast? 🙂

Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie treats are a classic American dessert. Growing up in the U.S. this is something I often ate as a snack. My mom made them for me, and at school these would be made and sold at bake sales. No matter how many times I ate them, I never got tired of them. They are so yummy, and they are so easy to make. Perhaps the whole world knows about this recipe by now, but in case you don’t here it is. It is the recipe directly from the Kelloggs website.

One thing I must emphasize is to use quality ingredients. Generic brands of rice krispies can make the treats soggy, and margarine, can make the rice krispie treats seem too oily, and marshmallow fluff just makes them taste strange imo. Hope you enjoy these treats! :o) Recipe is below, and video on how to make them is here .

  6. Cover with plastic wrap, and let the rice krispie treats cool.

Strawberry White Chocolate Muffins

Every time I buy strawberries in Denmark, I always feel like there is this time pressure of eating them all since they go bad so quickly. So last month I decided to make strawberry muffins using leftover strawberries. I found a really good recipe online here but changed a few things, and the end result was so yummy. The original recipe had cinnamon sprinkled on top of the muffins, and although I love cinnamon, I just thought it was weird together with strawberries, so I omitted that, but I thought of something even better. White chocolate! White chocolate and strawberries together? Sounded so delicious!

The muffins came out really moist and light, and the white chocolate adds this extra gooey vanilla goodness. Together with the fresh fruit, it’s really tasty.

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)

One of the best things about living abroad as a foreigner is that you get to meet people from all over the world. You learn about different cultures, languages, and food through these new people you meet that you might not otherwise know. One of my friends in Denmark is from Brazil, and one day she made Pão de Queijo for me. It is a Brazilian cheese bread that is typically made with cheese, tapioca flour, egg, milk, and some kind of oil. It is a really popular snack in Brazil and can even be found at supermarkets, and bakeries. It can be eaten for breakfast as well as just as a snack. It has a very unusual texture. The outside is crunchy, but the inside is soft, and has this cheesey firm gooeyness to it that is hard to describe, but really tasty. They are like these little light puffs of cheese. 🙂

There are several different methods and variations of ingredients to making Pão de Queijo, as I found out by searching for a recipe online. Some people blended all of the ingredients together in a blender, poured the very liquidy batter into mini muffin tins, and baked them. Some people used mozzarella cheese or cheddar, some cooked the ingredients before baking and some didn’t, but I wanted to make them like my friend did. She used parmesan cheese, and formed the dough into balls before baking them. Rather than ask her for the recipe (since I think she just googled it) I just searched for one online as well. I found a recipe similar to hers here

I decided to make half of the recipe, and I substituted salted butter for oil. I also reduced the salt. So this is the recipe I came up with in the end and the Pão de Queijo came out perfectly. Try it out if you want, and remember that they are best eaten warm. :o)

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)

Yield: 12

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 57 grams butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 - 1 1/4 cups tapioca flour/starch
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. In a small pot, combine milk, salt, and butter. Then, bring it to a gentle boil.
  2. Remove pot from heat.
  3. Stir in the tapioca flour, and mix until combined.
  4. Cool for about 15 minutes.
  5. Then, add the egg to the flour mixture, and mix until combined. You might have to use your hands
  6. Next, stir in the cheese, and add more flour, if needed. Again, you might have to use your hands to make sure it is well mixed.
  7. Then shape the dough into balls, and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  8. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes at 350F/176C.
  9. Serve warm.

Notes

When shaping the dough into balls, you might want to lightly oil your hands to prevent sticking.

Also, I thought the dough was too wet so I added more tapioca flour so it was easier to handle bringing the total amount of flour used to around 1 1/4 cups. I think if you add too much flour (so the dough is very dry) then the dough will be over worked and end up too hard once baked. So the extra amount of flour I added made the dough still wet but easier to handle and shape into balls.

If you live in Copenhagen, Denmark you can find tapioca starch/flour at Kabul Market outside Central Station. I could not find it when I was there so I had to ask and it’s no wonder I couldn’t since it’s mostly written in Thai? 🙂 I don’t know. It looks like this:

Hope you like them. Pretty easy to make. This was my first time making them and I imagine the next time will be easier. 🙂 I also made a video which I will upload soonish.
