Deep Fried Breakfast Tortilla




About: Into a variety of crafty things. Painting, food on the fly recipes, trashy into trashier (Haha), costumes (see profile pic). Etc....

Step 1: 1

1 large egg and two soft corn tortillas.

Step 2: 2

Mix egg, apply to outer ring of one tortilla shell.

Step 3: 3

Press other tortilla onto tortilla that had egg wash applied to it. Press down firmly.

Step 4: 4

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place tortillas on aluminum foil on center rack. Bake for 12 minutes.

Step 5: 5

With small knife, partially separate two baked tortillas shells. This will be necessary because the egg wash acts as a glue when the shells are baked in the oven. You want to form a pocket for your stuffing ingredients.

Step 6: 6

Cover bottom of skillet in vegetable oil. Heat over medium heat on stovetop for about 3 minutes.

Step 7: 7

Pre-cook the meat you will use for stuffing in microwave for 1 minute on high setting. (In my recipe I used thinly sliced deli ham.)

Step 8: 8

Cook remaining beaten egg in microwave for 1 minute on high setting. Scramble cooked eggs with a fork.( I forgot to use a photo of the cooked scrambled eggs).

Step 9: 9

Fill tortilla pocket with cheese of your choice. ( in my recipe I used smoked provolone).

Step 10: 10

Stuff the tortilla pocket with pre-cooked meat.

Step 11: 11

Once tortilla is stuffed with ingredients of your choice, fry in pre- heated oil. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Step 12: 12

Remove cooked , stuffed tortilla pocket from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Gently press towel over entire tortilla to remove excess cooking oil.

Step 13: End
