I told you guys once the weather starts warming up I’m all about tacos. Well, these are tostadas, but whatever. I like delicious things in a corn tortilla.
So let’s hope this cold front passes quickly. Going from Orlando weather in the 80’s to the 40’s here in Georgia is no fun. But at least I’m home so I can relax and make these ASAP.

I just love breakfast. I never have time to make a savory breakfast during the week so I always cherish it when I get the chance on the weekend. And these are PERFECT for that long, leisurely breakfast and/or brunch! A change from a breakfast burrito, frittata, omelet or scrambled eggs.

Here’s how I in-vision a weekend morning going with these involved:

– Wake up, stretch… nah I’m just gonna lay here for a second
– Make a cup of coffee and watch the news/sunrise
– Brush teeth, wash face, throw hair up and put on some mascara
– Grab the farmers market basket + head down
– Pick up the local eggs, local cheese, kale, hot peppers and onions
– Head on back home, turn on the Amos Lee Pandora station, get back in my comfy clothes, make these
– Enjoy the heck out of em’

Perfect.

If only that could be real life every day. But it’s not. So make these, freeze em’ and reheat them if you’re in a time crunch. But they’re honestly best served fresh out of the oven! Crispy, melty and fresh. Delicious.
