Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here. I’ve been a little MIA for the past 10 days or so, so sorry bout it. But I’ve been into some fun stuff and not really in front of my computer. And can we just take 10 seconds to acknowledge how great this South Carolina weather has been the past two days?

Let’s talk about tacos. And breakfast. So, Tuesday night rolled around, and Daniel and I had that normal gym convo of “what do you want for dinner?” And I’m thinking tacos because it is Tuesday, and I can always be down for some tacos. 

Well, we remembered that Dan is THE man, and bought us some of the new Progenex Haute Cakes Mix last week. Timeout – they’re really great, and honestly not that expensive – which surprised me. Ok, Time IN – We decided to make breakfast tacos. Because who doesn’t love some good breakfast for dinner? And who doesn’t love Tacos?

Hopefully these Breakfast Tacos will change your life, like they did our’s. They are packed with protein. Honestly, one taco is probably enough. But the below recipe makes about 3 pancakes big enough to transform into tacos. 

Breakfast Tacos

 

Makes 3 large pancakes (big enough for tacos)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes 

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • 2 servings Progenex Haute Cake Mix – (2/3 cups mix + 6 tbsp water)

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage

  • 1 small tomato- diced.

  • 1/2 medium yellow onion

  • 1 handful cilantro – chopped. 

  • 2 tsp. garlic – minced.

  • 2 tsp. pepper

  • Maple syrup – lightly topped

  • fresh lime juice – squeezed (optional)

Instructions: 

  • Mix together two servings of Progenex Haute Cakes Mix (along with 6 tbsp water). Pour batter over griddle or pan. Goal is to get diameter of 6-9 inches. Make sure cakes are big enough to turn into a folded taco. 

  • Cook sausage on stovetop – low heat.

  • Scramble eggs on separate pan – low heat. Once they are done scramblin’, add to sausage. Mix. 

  • Add in tomato, onion, cilantro, garlic, and pepper. Scramble everything together. Remove from heat, but allow to sit for 5 minutes. 

  • Add evenly among 3 tacos. Top with squeezed lime juice and maple syrup (totally optional). Dan was against the lime, cilantro, and maple syrup together, but you can’t have tacos without lime, and you can’t have pancakes without maple syrup, so I went with it, and it was actually really good. 

  • Save leftover egg/sausage/veggie mix. It’s ok if it won’t alllllll fit in the tacos. 

  • Happy Taco Everyday!

Notes: 

  • These pancakes are protein packed. One is actually a good bit of food. These would be good with some sweet potato hash.

  • If you don’t have Progenex Haute Cake Mix, another option is these pancakes I posted almost a year ago from one of my first recipes. Scroll down to the bottom of the blog to find them. 

  • This isn’t one of my leanest recipes, with alllllll that sausage. buttttt, it’s too good not to share. And remember, meat is good. Very good.
