Breakfast Nachos Supreme

Nachos for breakfast! Now THIS is an amazing way to start a day. Breakfast nachos are something I have been wanting to try for a while … and I don’t know exactly why I haven’t. The other day the subject came up at work and we decided we need to make these for our monthly breakfast. We’ve been doing monthly breakfast burrito events for a looooong time now and, while they are always delicious, I’m getting a little bored with cooking up the same old thing. So I’m really psyched to make THESE babies for the team!

Of course, before we go make breakfast nachos at work, I had to do a trial run … I used my cast iron pan and baked them, but you could do them in any pan, really, or a large cookie sheet if you have a crowd to feed. You could even assemble them on a plate and microwave them (which is what I’ll have to do at work). I was out of bacon, so my nachos just had breakfast sausage on them, but they’d be even better with bacon! Because, you know, everything’s better with bacon … right?

This isn’t so much a recipe as it is a general guideline–something to give you a little breakfast inspiration.  You can leave off anything you don’t like and add on whatever your heart desires. I scrambled 2 eggs and cooked up about 1/8 lb. of sausage for this recipe and I personally could barely make a dent in these. This is a breakfast that you’re definitely going to want to share with friends. It’s filling! And oh soooo wonderful. Come to mama, you beautiful little chipful …

      Thank you so much Debra! I’m soooo happy you like them. We ate loads of these nachos this weekend at the lake. They were even a hit with the kids (I made the kids a simplified version, with chips, cheese, bacon & eggs).
