Introduction: Deep Fried Breakfast Tortilla
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.
