My weekday breakfast usually consists of something that is quick, simple, and healthy. But on the weekends it’s a little different, as I have some more time and my husband is around to help out in the kitchen. It’s actually the only meal he is interested in cooking on his own, and that works for me! When our daughter is waking up a little earlier than expected on the weekend, these Breakfast Tostadas are the the perfect treat!
The word tostada (Spanish for “toasted”) describes how the tortilla for the dish is to be either toasted or fried (I usually bake them). This Mexican tostada consists of a meat mixture, vegetables and fried egg, making it great for breakfast. But you don’t have to have to make them for breakfast, they’re perfect for lunch and dinner too.
One quick note for the chorizo, look specifically for the raw spanish type, which you can find near fresh sausages at your grocery store. You could also use Italian sausage (spicy or mild) as a substitute. Just so you know there’s no dainty way to eat these tostadas, just dig in and enjoy this fresh take on breakfast!
