How to Make Sausage and Egg Tacos

Sausage and eggs are a classic breakfast dish, but they’re also great as tacos. This is the kind of meal that can be made ahead and eaten for lunch or dinner. You’ll need some sausage and eggs, tortillas (or tortilla chips), salsa verde, cilantro leaves for garnish (optional), and whatever else you like on your taco.

Make the sausage and eggs.

  • Cook your sausage and eggs. You can use either ground beef, pork or chicken sausage for this recipe, but we recommend using a milder variety like Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage. The eggs should be large (think over-easy) and firm. If you don’t have an egg poacher, any large pot will work just fine! We used the same method as our traditional omelettes so that it would cook evenly without burning on one side or too much liquid escaping from our pan when cooking.

Warm the tortillas.

To warm the tortillas, heat them up in a pan or microwave. The goal is to have them soft and pliable but not too hot that they’re floppy.

Assemble the tacos.

To assemble the tacos, place a tortilla on the plate and top with sausage, eggs and cheese. Next add salsa or other hot sauce to taste, sour cream if preferred and any other toppings you desire.

Sausage and eggs are so good in a taco shell!

Sausage and eggs are so good in a taco shell! They’re an excellent source of protein, easy to make, and can be served with any meal.

You can use any type of sausage you like for this recipe—we like breakfast sausage from the deli counter at our local grocery store because it’s less expensive than other types. If you don’t have access to breakfast sausages or want something different, feel free to substitute another kind (or even make your own). The only thing that matters is that it has a good amount of fat and protein to keep your body satisfied until lunchtime comes around again soon enough!


We hope you’ve enjoyed this recipe. It’s so much better than store-bought tortillas, and it takes less time to make than most other breakfast foods. We think you’ll love the taste of these tacos as much as we do!
