Leftovers Breakfast Tacos

  • 1-3 eggs, scrambled
  • 2-3 tortillas, corn or flour
  • 1 1/2 cup leftover roasted vegetables
  • Optional toppings: salsa, cheese, minced cilantro, lime juice


  1. Crack your eggs into a bowl and beat them well with a fork or whisk until they are slightly frothy.
  2. In the microwave, heat up your leftovers for about 1-1.5 minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave. Set aside the vegetables.
  3. In a small, non-stick pan, set heat to medium/medium-low and add a touch of oil or butter. Once hot/melted, pour in your eggs and stir frequently to scramble until they are soft and fluffy. Eggs should be thickened and no visible liquid egg remains.
  4. Warm-up your tortillas in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  5. Prepare your tortillas with reheated leftovers and eggs, top with optional toppings, serve and enjoy!
