Protein Packed Breakfast Tacos

Serves 4


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup breakfast sausage
  • 4 green onions, sliced, whites and greens separated
  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper, diced
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 avocado, small diced
  •  4 low carb tortillas


  1. Cook bacon over medium-high heat in a large skillet until crispy. Transfer to a plate covered with a paper towel to drain grease. Next add sausage to the skillet and cook until browned, about 7-10 minutes. Transfer to the paper towel covered plate with bacon. Drain all grease from the skillet except 1 tbsp. Add whites from green onions and sauté them for about 1 minutes. Next add roasted red peppers and sauté for another 1 minute. 
  2. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl, then pour them into the heated skillet along with the cooked sausage and cheese. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, move the egg mixture around while they cook until light and fluffy.  
  3. Assemble tacos by spooning some of the egg mixture into the tortilla then topping with crumbled bacon and avocado. Enjoy!

    * Additionally, a drizzle of your favorite salsa or low-fat ranch dressing goes great on these tacos!
