Our family always gathered together for Thanksgiving Day to have a large feast at my grandmother’s home. It would be scheduled for everyone to arrive at noon, however with late arrivals and last minute prepping such as heating the rolls, we would not eat until closer to 1:00pm. My dad was the type of person that liked to eat early. If he had his way he would have breakfast between 6-7am then lunch at 11am and dinner between 4-5pm.
Eating at 1:00 for the first meal of the day was not an option for him. Since my mom would usually stay up late cooking the night before and rise early to bake some more before heading over to my grandma’s, it was my dad’s responsibility to prepare breakfast. I can visually remember him in the kitchen cooking me an egg. It was always eggs and little smoke sausages. My dad and I ate our eggs over easy with the yolk runny to go with our toast. My mom preferred her’s scrambled.
Now the tradition has continued on to my own family. Our favorite part of being home together over the holidays is cooking a large breakfast to eat in our pajamas. My kiddos are hungry when their feet hit the ground.
Since I’ve gone gluten-free the toast had to go. Now we have an obsession with breakfast tacos. Andrew makes homemade pico de gallo that is delicious.
The Goldrich eggs had beautifully golden and rich tasting yolks. It makes the scramble eggs turn out wonderful. Once the sausage is done and the grease is drained, we mix in the eggs.
The trick to making the best corn tortilla tacos is adding a little olive oil to a skillet and heating up the tortilla so it isn’t so soft it falls apart.
