Our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021 from our Weekend Eggs series of breakfast egg dishes from around the world is a collection of the most popular new breakfast egg recipes published in 2021 that you searched for, visited, read, and loved to cook this year. This compilation of this year’s best breakfast eggs dishes does not include recipes published in previous years.
It’s that time of the year when we reflect upon the year that’s coming to an end and look at our stats to see how you, our readers, spent their time on Grantourismo, what you searched for, what you read, and, most importantly what you cooked. Today we’re looking at our most popular Weekend Eggs recipes.
If you’re just landing here for the first time, Weekend Eggs is a series on the quintessential breakfast eggs dishes of places around the world where we settled in for a while and learned to cook the food.
We launched the breakfast egg series when we launched Grantourismo on New Year’s Day 2010 with a year-long global grand tour aimed at promoting slow, local and experiential travel, forms of travel that we felt were not only more sustainable and responsible, but were also more meaningful and memorable.
We re-booted Weekend Eggs during the pandemic, because we didn’t have enough recipes to explore and develop with our Cambodia cookbooks and my Russian family recipes. Just kidding!!! But it was a good decision as many of our Weekend Eggs recipes have been the most popular on our site.
A few days ago we shared our overall 21 best recipes of 2021 compiled from our new recipes published in 2021 and later this week we’ll share a list of our all-time most popular recipes. Many of those recipes we published way back in 2010 when we first launched Grantourismo.
We’ll also be sharing a list of the 21 travel destinations that you dreamt of going to in 2021, as we know many of you were in lockdown or home-bound due to tough travel restrictions that limited international travel. And as we get closer to the holiday period, we’ll share some predictions, ideas and suggestions for 2022.
Now, before you scroll down to browse our 21 best breakfast egg recipes of 2021, I have a favour to ask.

Now let me tell you about our 21 best breakfast egg recipes of 2021 from our Weekend Eggs series.
Best Breakfast Egg Recipes of 2021 from our Weekend Eggs Breakfast Series
Just a few quick notes on our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021 from our Weekend Eggs breakfast series. To avoid repetition, we’ve left some recipes off the top of our list of 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021, because they were on our overall 21 Best Recipes of 2021 list (link above).
They include recipes for the Malaysian and Singaporean half boiled eggs for classic kopitiam eggs to go with kaya coconut jam and toast, which would have topped this list, the Calabrian style eggs in purgatory with ‘nduja from Southern Italy, which would have placed at #2, the original Cantonese style egg foo young recipe, which would have been #3
We also excluded recipes on that list for a breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, shredded chicken, cheese, and pico de gallo (#4), Turkish scrambled eggs for menemen for a traditional Turkish breakfast spread (#5) and our classic avocado toast with poached eggs (#6).
It was so interesting to see that six Weekend Eggs dishes were among our 21 most-read recipes on Grantourismo and that overall our breakfast eggs recipes were some of those most popular on the site. We’re so pleased we revived our Weekend Eggs series earlier this year.
I also left off my Russian French toast recipe, which came in at the fifth most-read post on the site overall, as, despite being made with eggs, the recipe wasn’t made for Weekend Eggs but for my Russian family recipes for the Russian cookbook I’m developing.
Terence’s excellent guide to how to boil eggs perfectly every single time was the sixth most-visited post on Grantourismo of 2021, and that was excluded from both lists as it’s more of a guide than a recipe. I take this list stuff too seriously, right?
Best Breakfast Recipes of 2021 from our Weekend Eggs Breakfast Series
Mexican Migas Recipe with a Twist for the ‘Migas Tortilla’
This Mexican migas recipe with a twist makes a ‘migas tortilla’ made with homemade crispy tortilla chips and it was one of the most visited recipes of our 21 Best Breakfast Eggs Recipes of 2021 from our Weekend Eggs breakfast series. In Mexico, migas is a scrambled eggs dish that uses up stale corn tortilla or wheat flour tortillas made into crispy tortilla chips. Inspired by the Spanish egg and potato tortilla, we’ve created an inauthentic Mexican migas recipe, which we’ve called a ‘migas tortilla’. Instead of scrambled eggs with homemade crispy tortilla chips, the eggs are set into a form that more closely resembles a Spanish potato tortilla or Italian frittata. We could have called it a Mexican-style frittata. Whatever you want to call it, it’s absolutely delicious. Sprinkle it with Mexican cotija cheese (it’s available on Amazon; but if you can’t get hold of some use a crumbly white cheese that is not too salty) and serve with pico de gallo – a simple salsa of finely chopped tomato, onion, green chillies, and coriander – and hot sauces, such as Tapatio and Cholula which are a couple of our favourites.
Thai Son-in-Law Eggs Recipe for Fried Boiled Eggs with Sweet Tamarind Sauce
This Thai son-in-law eggs recipe makes kai look keuy, crispy fried soft-boiled eggs drizzled in a sweet tamarind sauce and sprinkled with fresh fragrant coriander, spicy dried chillies, and crunchy fried shallots and garlic. These golden-brown fried soft-boiled eggs with an ever-so-slightly crispy skin can be eaten on their own as a light breakfast or snack, or as the Thais do with steamed rice to make a meal out of them. They’re doused in a sweet and sour homemade tamarind sauce, although you could be very generous with the sauce and drown the things in it if you like. Our Thai friends tell us they have fond memories of their mums and grandmas making these for them as an after-school snack when they were kids. These are a close cousin to the variety of Chinese eggs called ‘tiger skin eggs’ (虎皮蛋), cooked and fried with the same technique.
Traditional Burmese Egg Curry Recipe for a Myanmar Breakfast Favourite
This traditional Burmese egg curry recipe makes a Myanmar curry shop staple that’s typically eaten for breakfast. Served with a spicy tomato and onion-based curry, the boiled eggs are peeled and deep fried in turmeric until golden, which is why you’ll also see this called a Burmese golden egg curry recipe in some Burmese cookbooks. We’ve adapted this classic Burmese egg curry recipe from our favourite Burmese cookbook, the modestly printed Cook and Entertain the Burmese Way (1978) by Mi Mi Khaing, which was one of the first Burmese cookbooks – indeed, one of the first books – that we bought on our first trip to Myanmar some years ago. It’s a delight to read and is full of insights into the culinary culture as much as the cuisine.
Mexican Huevos Rancheros Recipe with Mexican Chorizo for the Best Mexican Breakfast
This traditional Mexican huevos rancheros recipe with Mexican chorizo makes the classic Mexican ‘ranch eggs’, a breakfast staple in Mexico, and another one of the most visited recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021. A tomato salsa is enriched with soft spicy chorizo sausage and combined with fried eggs with runny egg yolks laid on warm tortillas, makes a hearty flavourful Mexican breakfast dish. This classic Mexican huevos rancheros recipe makes one of the best Mexican egg breakfasts and is the traditional Mexican egg dish that inspired our contemporary-styled Mexican ‘ranch eggs’ recipe, which I made with a poached egg rather than fried eggs. That contemporary take on this traditional Mexican huevos rancheros recipe was conceived over a decade ago for our Weekend Eggs recipe series on quintessential breakfast eggs dishes around the world, and yet it still looks and feels contemporary and tastes just as delicious as this classic Mexican breakfast dish.
Fried Egg Avocado Breakfast Banh Mi or Num Pang Recipe
This fried egg avocado breakfast banh mi recipe makes a breakfast sandwich inspired by the Cambodian and Vietnamese baguettes with eggs, such as banh mi op la in Hoi An, and the Australian café breakfast favourite of smashed avocado and eggs on toast. Call it a Vietnamese banh mi or a Cambodian num pang, just don’t call it a sub! Make sure to use proper French baguettes or demi-baguettes with crunchy crusts and soft fluffy bread – which, unfortunately, we aren’t always able to get here in Cambodia – and warm the baguettes up in the oven. The quick pickle of carrot and daikon and fresh fragrant herbs such as coriander, basil and mint are a must. I recommend sprinkling on some slices of chilli – mild or hot chillies, it’s up to you, but it needs a kick of chilli. Alternatively, a squeeze of homemade Sriracha sauce works. If you enjoy our fried egg avocado breakfast num pang, do try our meatball num pang made with juicy pork balls; our num pang pâté with rustic country-style pâté and cold cuts; and, come Christmas, when you have leftover turkey, try our num pang barang (‘barang’ means ‘foreigner’ in Khmer).
Fried Eggs with Chorizo and Potatoes Recipe for Basque Style ‘Messy Eggs’
This fried eggs with chorizo and potatoes recipe for Basque style ‘messy eggs’ makes the perfect weekend hangover cure that’s made for a late breakfast after a long night of pintxos bar-hopping in the old town of San Sebastián, one of our favourite summer destinations. It also makes a warming breakfast or brunch in winter. As usual we’ve put a twist on a fairly traditional recipe by using baby potatoes instead of slices of potato. Slices can get soggy if not handled correctly and deep-frying potatoes pieces isn’t fun for a lazy weekend breakfast or brunch. The reason we use baby potatoes is that they cook fast, are easy to handle, and you can leave the skins on to get a little crispy in the pan. Another twist to the traditional recipe is shallow frying the potatoes in the chorizo oil, because why wouldn’t you? Because we generally only cook for two these days (thanks Covid-19!) we use a little single non-stick egg frying pan. It’s not just cute as hell, it will cook an egg with crusty whites and a soft yolk in about 45 seconds on full heat.
This Japanese Rolled Omelette Recipe Makes Tamagoyaki for Your Tamago Sando
This Japanese rolled omelette recipe for tamagoyaki makes a soft, fluffy, rolled omelette that we love to eat between thick slices of Japanese bread to make a tamago sando or Japanese egg sandwich. Japanese rolled omelettes are eaten everywhere in Japan, from izakayas to high-end sushi restaurants, but home-cooked tamagoyaki is special.. Our best advice if you’re just starting on your tamagoyaki adventure is to buy a tamagoyaki pan. There are so many tamagoyaki pans out there that Amazon has a dedicated page explaining the types of Tamagoyaki pans on the market. We’re old-school and like the cast iron tamagoyaki pans with wooden handles. We found a small tamagoyaki pan in our Japanese recycle shop here in Siem Reap that’s perfect for a one-person omelette measuring 10 cm wide x 15 cm long. It’s still listed on the Amazon Japan shop, but, really, it’s too small, even though we continue to use it. If you’re buying your first Japanese rolled omelette pan, we recommend buying an entire tamagoyaki kit with a brush for the oil for the pan and – most importantly – a silicone spatula with which to roll the omelette. It makes a great Christmas gift for egg-lovers!
Classic Thai Omelette Recipe for Kai Jiew, a Crispy Puffy Golden-Brown Omelette
This Thai omelette recipe makes kai jiew, a crispy, puffy golden-brown Thai omelette cooked in plenty of vegetable oil in a very hot wok. The eggs are fortified by a good dash of fish sauce and the omelette is served on steamed jasmine rice with some Sriracha sauce. It’s a spectacular Thai dish to make: when poured into the hot oil, the whisked eggs with fish sauce form bubbles that grow and the omelette puffs right up like a crazy magic trick, before settling down as it cooks into a thick, soft, fluffy golden-brown omelette. It takes confidence in your kitchen skills to stay calm while flipping this puffy omelette over! Wear closed footwear and a kitchen apron. A round bottomed wok is essential as you need to get under the omelette with a wide mesh skimmer. If you like this recipe, you might also like to try this kai yat say recipe for Thai ‘stuffed’ eggs, an egg parcel of stir-fried pork mince and diced vegetables, this Vietnamese-inspired crab omelette recipe, or this Cambodian omelette with minced pork and prahok (fermented fish). This was another one of the most read recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021.
Thai Fried Egg Salad Recipe for Yam Khai Dao, a Deliciously Addictive Crispy Fried Egg Salad
This Thai fried egg salad recipe for yam khai dao makes an addictive salad of crispy fried eggs with sweet tomatoes, purple shallots, crunchy peanuts, fragrant coriander and Chinese celery, chillies, and a salad dressing that’s all at once sweet, sour, tangy, and funky. When you think of egg salads, what probably comes to mind are creamy boiled egg salads with mayonnaise that have the texture of baby food. This Thai fried egg salad recipe for yam khai dao makes a salad that’s full of so much texture and flavour and a kick of chilli-heat that it couldn’t be more different. Sweet juicy tomatoes, aromatic coriander, crunchiness coming from the purple shallots, roasted peanuts and Chinese celery stems, a hit of heat from the chillies, crispy fried eggs that soak up a salad dressing that’s sour, sweet, tangy, and funky… this Thai fried egg salad is so simple yet so delicious and it’s absolutely addictive.
Turkish Poached Eggs Recipe with Garlic Yoghurt and Chilli Oil for Cilbir
This Turkish poached eggs recipe makes cilbir – more correctly çılbır, pronounced ‘chil-bir’ – a delicious Turkish brunch dish of runny eggs immersed in creamy garlic yoghurt, drizzled with buttery chilli oil, and garnished with fragrant fresh dill. A favourite of Ottoman sultans, çılbır can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or a snack, and it was another one of the most visited recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021. If you enjoyed our Turkish scrambled eggs recipe for menemen, you’re going to love this Turkish poached eggs recipe for cilbir or çılbır – runny poached eggs in garlic yoghurt, doused in chilli butter oil, and sprinkled with aromatic fresh dill. Dunk some toasted sourdough in the eggs and you’re in breakfast heaven. Some çılbır recipes call for garlic cloves but we prefer to stir through garlic powder. In Turkey, pul biber is used, which is similar to Aleppo pepper. As we can’t get either, we use chilli flakes but smoked paprika, sumac or even Korean gochugaru would work. We also add homemade chilli oil, but you could use a Sichuan-style chilli oil. This chilli-infused olive oil would also be wonderful.
Scrambled Eggs with Sautéed Mushrooms on Sourdough Toast Recipe
This scrambled eggs with sautéed mushrooms on sourdough toast recipe is made for a late weekend breakfast cum lazy brunch dish. Smoky sautéed mushrooms atop perfectly moist scrambled eggs and crusty sourdough bread make for a very satisfying combination. Especially enjoyed with a couple of glasses of a crisp Italian white. If we were making these scrambled eggs with sautéed mushrooms after 11am on a Sunday pre-pandemic, we probably would have popped a cork and enjoyed a couple of glasses of a nice crisp Pinot Grigio – which is what a treat mushroom scrambled eggs dish is. Of course, a little shaving of fresh black truffles would make this even more special. For any eggs on an open ‘sandwich’, ie. one piece of bread, and in this case, sourdough toast, we always toast the sourdough on a griddle pan. Then we do the mushrooms head down on the griddle as well. The mushrooms will smoke a little, which is what we are after.
Egg Foo Young with Gravy Recipe for the Chinese American Crispy Omelette That’s a Takeout Favourite
This egg foo young with gravy recipe makes the Chinese American restaurant specialty of crispy omelettes doused in gravy and sprinkled with scallions, sesame seeds and bean sprouts, and it was another one of the most visited recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021. Served with rice, the fantastic, filling omelette can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner and is just as delicious as the Cantonese original. A few weeks ago, we published a recipe for the original Cantonese-style egg foo young – or egg foo yung or egg fu yung or the Cantonese fu yong dan or fuyong dan – a delightfully crispy omelette filled with pork, spring onions and bean sprouts, with provenance in Southern China during the 18th century Ching Dynasty. As the recipe was so well-received by readers, we thought we’d share a Chinese American egg foo young with gravy recipe, which makes a popular Chinese takeout dish that originated in Chinese American restaurants in the 19th or 20th century. There are numerous origin stories. Similar egg foo young variations exist in Chinese diasporas around the world, each with their own tweaks, and they’re all delicious.
Traditional Scotch Eggs Recipe with a Thai Inspired Pad Kra Pao Twist
This traditional Scotch eggs recipe for the classic British picnic snack has a Thai-influenced twist inspired by the Thai stir-fry favourite, pad kra pao or pad gaprao, below. Scotch eggs are traditionally made with a boiled egg wrapped in seasoned sausage meat, which is crumbed and deep-fried. Here, I’ve added the flavours of pad kra pao to the minced pork. While mass-produced Scotch eggs are still sold in supermarkets and service stations in the UK, the gastro-pub revolution saw the humble snack elevated to such an extent that Scotch eggs even graced the menus of Michelin-starred restaurants. Those posh Scotch eggs have long been a source of inspiration. We’ve been a little obsessed with the popular Thai dish pad kra pao for a while, and given that it’s essentially seasoned minced meat that’s typically topped with a fried egg, it was the perfect candidate for this traditional Scotch eggs recipe with a Thai twist.
Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Congee
Our hearty bacon and eggs breakfast congee recipe makes a comforting East-West savoury rice porridge that’s inspired partly by the classic Australian breakfast of bacon and eggs with sautéed mushrooms, and partly by Chinese and Southeast breakfast porridges with pork and boiled eggs. Breakfast porridges, both savoury and sweet, are, like other rice dishes, eaten right around the world. Porridges are not only made with rice, of course, and are not only eaten for breakfast, but for brunch and lunch, a warming winter dinner, as a sweet dessert, a late-night supper to stave off a hangover, or when we’re ill. Rice porridges are probably the most widely consumed porridge, eaten everywhere from Europe and the Middle East to Asia – from Portugal to Turkey, The Levant to Taiwan – yet they might just be the most ubiquitous in Asia. Asian rice porridges are fairly restrained, however, my congee brims with condiments and garnishes. This is a bowl that you could easily share and there will be leftovers, and this recipe was another one of the most visited recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021.
Chorizo Eggs Recipe for Fried Eggs with Chorizo and Chilli Oil and Spring Onions
Our chorizo eggs recipe for fried eggs with chorizo and chilli oil and spring onions on sourdough toast makes a filling weekend breakfast or brunch dish that will take you back to Mexico or Spain, depending on where you first sampled chorizo. We’ve been making chorizo and eggs dishes in one form or another since our first trip to Mexico in the Nineties when we fell in love with a charming old-school diner in Mexico City called Café El Popular and their huevos revueltos con chorizo or scrambled eggs with chorizo. This recipe is inspired by that classic dish. While many of our chorizo eggs recipes have in some way been inspired by those first eggs with chorizo we had in Mexico all those years ago, this fried eggs with chorizo and chilli oil and spring onions has been made with Spanish chorizo sausage not Mexican chorizo, and it’s one of our best recipes with chorizo sausage.
Easy Scrambled Eggs Breakfast Taco Recipe with Chorizo and Mashed Avocado
This easy scrambled eggs breakfast taco recipe with avocado and chorizo is a Mexican inspired dish rather than an authentic Mexican breakfast dish, but it’s easily one of our best Mexican breakfast recipes as far as we’re concerned, as it’s rooted in our Mexican culinary travels. It was also another one of the most visited recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021. It makes a deliciously light yet filling breakfast taco that feels healthy thanks to the avocado. While these Mexican breakfast tacos come together quickly, an array of garnishes, salsas and hot sauces help make this breakfast special. This scrambled eggs breakfast taco recipe will make you something closer to the Mexican-American or Tex-Mex breakfast tacos that you’ll find somewhere like Austin, Texas, rather than a taco you’d eat for breakfast at a counter in a taqueria or mercado in Mexico City. These scrambled eggs breakfast tacos are nevertheless incredibly delicious – and are even more fun if you wash them down with a couple of micheladas.
Soft Scrambled Eggs Recipe with Chinese Barbecue Pork and Chives
This soft scrambled eggs recipe with Chinese barbecue pork and chives makes a fantastic filling breakfast eggs dish that literally takes minutes to make. Using a combination of Eastern and Western techniques, the result is the softest silkiest scrambled eggs. Our creamy soft scrambled eggs is cooked to around the same ‘doneness’ as good French-style scrambled eggs with big curds, but these soft scrambled eggs have a much lighter texture. That makes them even more special and perfect for leisurely weekend breakfast. Based on a Cantonese technique where the whites and the yolks are separated, the whites are whisked briskly until fluffy, then the yolks are added and lightly mixed through. Then this is where our technique for these soft scrambled eggs veers away from the Cantonese scrambled eggs. We do away with the additions of corn starch, sugar, Shaoxing wine, salt, and MSG, and just add a generous dash of toasted sesame oil. This egg mixture is tossed into a hot wok with foaming butter. We add char siu pork and scallions or spring onions, then top the finished creamy scrambled eggs with plenty of sliced garlic chives.
Chinese Tea Eggs Recipe for Perfumed Marbled Eggs Almost Too Beautiful To Eat
This Chinese tea eggs recipe makes marbled eggs – aromatic boiled eggs that have a marbled appearance when peeled. The recipe was another one of the most read recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021. Steeped in a stock of five spice, star anise, soy and tea flavours that perfume the eggs, they’re a tasty snack when eaten on their own, or add soy sauce, chilli sauce and steamed rice and you have a lovely light breakfast. Or you can make a full meal of them and add soy sauce, chilli sauce and steamed rice, and make a pot of tea, and you have a deliciously light breakfast or brunch right there. These Chinese marbled eggs are traditionally hard-boiled eggs, and even though we prefer soft-boiled eggs, we absolutely love this Chinese tea eggs recipe and are big fans of these beautiful marbled eggs. If you are as well, you can easily make double the number of eggs just by adding a little more stock to the stockpot. However you eat them, they are fantastic with Lao Gan Ma (chilli sauce) with peanuts and a little soy sauce, we don’t care how soft or hard they’re boiled. They’re so good.
Thai Pad Kra Pao Recipe for Stir Fried Ground Pork and Holy Basil with Fried Egg
This Thai pad kra pao recipe for stir fried pork and holy basil with fried egg makes a breakfast staple of street food stalls all over Thailand. A paste of chilli and garlic is combined with ground pork, a rich sauce and holy basil. To top it off, a classic Thai condiment, prik nam pla, further enhances the flavour of this popular Thai street food dish when served with steamed jasmine rice. It’s a filling breakfast dish and a Thai street food favourite with locals and foreigners alike. This Thai pad kra pao recipe is also very versatile. Thai holy basil is essential – that’s the ‘kra pao’ in the title, also written as ‘kra pow’ and ‘gaphrao’, while ‘pad’ or ‘phat’ is ‘stir-fried’ – however, you could easily use ground beef or chicken mince, and you can crank up the heat if you like things hot or serve a more gently spiced stir-fry if you prefer. A seasoned carbon steel wok is essential to get the mince a little smoky, which will help give your pad kra pao that authentic Thai flavour. It also makes a fantastic Christmas present for lovers of Asian cooking.
Indonesian Egg Curry Recipe with Fragrant Lemongrass and Funky Shrimp Paste for Telur Petis from Java
This Indonesian egg curry recipe with fragrant lemongrass and funky shrimp paste for telur petis comes from the Indonesian island of Java although variations can be found right across the Indonesian archipelago. This rendition makes a gently-spiced boiled egg curry that’s eaten as breakfast and a snack, but the spiced eggs are also used to decorate a festive rice dish. Our Indonesian egg curry recipe will make you a moreish dish of boiled eggs in a creamy coconut milk-based curry made from a freshly pounded spice paste with lemongrass grass stalks adding fragrance and flavour to the spicy gravy. ‘Telur’ means ‘egg’ and ‘petis’ is the shrimp paste that adds a subtle funkiness to this spicy egg curry. If you enjoy this, you will also love the Padang style eggs recipe for gulai telur Pedang, a spicy coconut-based egg curry from Sumatra. This recipe was only published last week yet it quickly became one of the most visited recipes of our 21 best breakfast eggs recipes of 2021.
Fried Eggs Breakfast Taco Recipe with Chorizo, Crunchy Potatoes and Spicy Chorizo Oil
Our fried eggs breakfast taco made with soft tortillas, diced fried chorizo, and crunchy potato cubes, drizzled with spicy chorizo oil, makes a very satisfying weekend breakfast, and yet another of our best recipes with chorizo. Squeeze on some hot sauce, add a dollop of Mexican crema or crème fraiche, wrap it up, and tell us this isn’t one of the best breakfast tacos you’ve ever had. For our readers outside North America who may not be familiar with the idea of a ‘breakfast taco’, it is essentially just a taco in Mexico where tacos are made with soft tortillas, typically corn tortillas rather than the flour tortillas we’ve had to use. In Mexico, tacos are eaten at any time of the day, from breakfast, through lunch to dinner. North of the border, you’ll find it’s the same in Mexican-American restaurants, eateries and food trucks in cities such as Austin, Texas, which claims to have coined the term and invented the concept of the ‘breakfast taco’. It’s in the USA’s Tex-Mex cuisine where hard crispy taco shells are used. Our breakfast taco is inspired by the breakfast tacos we loved to eat in Austin, which are abundant with ingredients.
Please do let us know in the comments below if you make any of our 21 best breakfast recipes of 2021 as we’d love to know how they turn out for you.
