Longtime FR contributor Adeena Sussman has a new cookbook out, and when she launches a book, we go nuts. Cook your way through America’s Best Breakfasts and make sure you stop in Austin for the best egg tacos in the country. 

Why is Austin such a breakfast taco town? “You have all kinds of people needing to eat at all different times,” Roberto Espinosa told us at Tacodeli, a chain he started in 1999. Originally a schoolteacher, Mexico-born Espinosa opened the first branch and has watched his business grow every year. Tacos filled with bacon and potatoes are popular, but we loved this one, which is twice as local, seeing as it’s inspired by another Tex-Mex dish: migas, a scramble of eggs, tortilla chips or strips, and toppings. We re-created the creamy Dona sauce — a top-secret recipe concocted years ago by a Tacodeli employee — as best we could.
