Introduction: Sunny-Side-Up Breakfast Nachos

Picture of Sunny-Side-Up Breakfast Nachos
If you're tired of eating the same old breakfast every morning, here's an EASY, quick Nacho Breakfast treat you're sure to enjoy!

For each serving you'll need:
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Slices of Bacon
  • 1/3 cup shredded Colby-Jack Cheese
  • Corn Tortilla Chips
  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Salt and Pepper 

Fry the bacon over medium heat in a nonstick pan until crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Crack the eggs into the same skillet you just fried the bacon in. It should still be hot. Cook eggs over very low heat for 4-5 minutes (undisturbed) until the whites are set and no longer runny. 

While the eggs are cooking, layer 5 or 6 flat tortilla chips in the bottom of a pie tin.

Turn the oven to broil at 500 degrees.

When the egg whites are set, remove the eggs from the pan with a spatula and place them gently on top of the Tortilla chips in the pie tin. Sprinkle HALF of the cheese and then HALF of the bacon onto the egg whites, leaving the yolk uncovered. Salt and pepper as desired.

Broil for 2-3 minutes. Keep a close eye on your breakfast and don't let it get scorched.

Remove the pie tin and layer 5 more Tortilla Chips around the yolks, on top of the egg whites. Then layer the remaining cheese and bacon on top of the chips.

Return the pie tin to the oven and broil for 1-2 minutes more. When the cheese has melted and the chips are toasty, the egg yolks will be more fully cooked, too.

Now just slide the Breakfast Nachos right onto a serving plate, garnish with salsa and sour cream... and chow down! ;-)

You, madam, are a visionary.

I think the only step up from this is to add a thick creamy gravy. *drool*

BlackSheep1 (author)Kozar2015-11-12

Ooooh. Red River gravy? (make a regular sausage gravy substituting chorizo, adding a little chipotle powder for yumminess)

bajablue (author)Kozar2011-08-24

lol...I already hear voices. If I start "seeing" things, I'll be in worse trouble! ;-D

OMY! (Oh my YUM!) What I'm visualizing now is thick, creamy Sausage Gravy substituted for the bacon. Now we both need bibs!!!!

Thanks! ;-)

Or if you really want to push the limits of the human gastrointestinal system, you would deep fry the entire thing using some type of energy drink based batter....

(You may want to post a disclaimer about my comments. These augmentations could possibly turn human blood thicker than molasses)

bajablue (author)Kozar2011-08-24

Killjoy. ;-D

Brandy01 (author)2012-08-16

This awesome. We even make it with chicken or other leftover meat we might have in the fridge. Very good.

bajablue (author)Brandy012012-08-17

Creative uses beyond the norm. Thanks for sharing, Brandy!

Frederbee (author)2012-08-02

YES! I work at a taco place, and every morning when I open I have time to make and eat something before I open up officially... I'm going to try this with refried beans instead of the bacon, since I'm allergic, and some of our pico de gallo n.n You just made my day (and my mornings!)

bajablue (author)Frederbee2012-08-02

lol... COOL "BEANS"! ;-D

Thank you for such a NICE comment!!!

p.s. I love pico de gallo, too. ;-P~

AngelInTheNight (author)2012-02-02

Oh my gosh that looks so good. Why is it I found this after I used all of my bacon? I'm making one! (Although I'll probably use biscuits for the nacho part)

bajablue (author)AngelInTheNight2012-02-05

Biscuits are good! ;-D Thanks for commenting Angel!!!

AngelInTheNight (author)bajablue2012-02-22

No problem! Thanks for the awesome idea!

We tried these and OMG...my family wants to leave me and move in with you, I am pretty sure! ;) Baja, you ROCK the SOCKS around the BLOCK.

Tell them to pack their sandals and bathing suits 'cause we're all headed for Baja in a few short weeks! ;-D

P.S. Thank you for making my day!

Great now i'm hungry again. I'm going to have to make these soon, but I'll probably go with scrambled eggs and crumble them up like ground beef to spread over top. Looks delicious!

bajablue (author)wkuace2011-08-21
