Brooklyn Breakfast Tacos

Authentic, Austin breakfast tacos taken by the Gourmet Fury and posted on her blog.

Earlier this fall I got to visit Austin, enchanted land of swimming holes, relaxed cafes, and the most delicious Tex-Mex invention of all: the breakfast taco. I could eat Mexican (and Texican) food all day, everyday, for every meal and not get sick of it. My waistline might not appreciate it, but my taste buds would. This is why I find it especially gratifying that it seems that most every independent coffee shop worth its salt that you go into in Austin has freshly made breakfast tacos on their menu. Featuring corn tortillas, scrambled eggs, beans, salsa, sausage, avocado, cheese, potatoes or anything else you might want to put in it, breakfast tacos and an ice coffee are a great way to start a Texas day.

Some of the fixin’s for Brooklyn Breakfast Tacos

Coming back to Brooklyn I found myself immersed in entertaining out-of-town friends and family. Everyone had very different dietary needs, including gluten-free, diary-free, and vegan, and so to accommodate everyone I thought that instead of going to a restaurant we could just host a brunch featuring build your own breakfast tacos! That way people could take what they liked and enjoy a little Texican in Brooklyn. Paired with cold brewed iced coffee, well, it was a good Sunday.

We made a fruit salad, as well as corn salsa, black beans, guacamole, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, scrambled eggs and home fries, but you could also make green salsa or any number of other sauces or toppings. Happy breakfasting!
