Breakfast Chalupas

Breakfast ChalupasThese simple chalupas were what I made for breakfast today and they were so yummy the hubs said “You ought to upload these to the blog.”  I was hungry today and wanted breakfast fast, so I just grabbed the Mission low-carb whole wheat tortillas and created these with what I saw in the fridge.  I was out of bacon but had some thin-sliced Cure81 ham, so easy decision there.  The little bit of jalapeno in these was quite tasty without being too spicy.  I’m not a big fan of overly spicy food.  Give these a try!  Your palate, tummy and family will be happy!   Adjust recipe for more than 2 chalupas.

2 Mission brand whole-wheat Carb-Balance flour tortillas (6″ diameter)

1 T. unsalted butter

2.6 oz. lean cured ham

1 green onion, chopped

½ jalapeno, chopped

3 large eggs, beaten in a small bowl

¼ c. shredded Cheddar Cheese

VARIATION:  Use bacon or browned breakfast sausage instead of ham. 🙂

DIRECTIONS:  Chop the ham small and green onion and have ready.  Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and dry griddle the flour tortillas, slightly toasting both sides until they begin to brown.  Remove to an oven-proof serving platter.

In the same skillet, melt half the butter over medium heat and lightly brown the onion, jalapeno, green onion and chopped ham.  Saute just until the vegetables start to wilt and remove to a paper plate.  Preheat oven to 300º.

Wipe skillet with paper towels.  In the same skillet over medium neat,  melt the rest of the butter and add the eggs.  Scramble to your preference.  I like them still moist if a dish is going to go in the oven also.

Set half the eggs evenly on each toasted flour tortilla.  Evenly top with half the ham/onion mixture.  Top with 2 T. cheese over each.  Pop into 300º oven for 5-8 minutes just to melt the cheese.  Garnish with a halved cherry tomato if serving to company. 🙂
