Brisket, potatoes and eggs wrapped up in one happy Texan taco.

We’re currently obsessed with the Austin Breakfast Tacos cookbook, having enjoyed more than one on a Food Republic field trip down South. All the famous egg tacos are in there, but this one is a particular favorite of ours: Torchy’s.

Owner Mike Rypka says of their famous breakfast tacos:

“The tortilla is a powerful thing. Potatoes, eggs and bacon are good, but put it in a portable wrap that can be carried to the park with build-your-own mimosas? C’mon, that has Austin written all over it.”

Yeah, swap in smoked brisket for the bacon, à la The Wrangler here, and you might make a few friends while you’re at it! Start with any of our breakfast potato recipes and go from there. Expert tip: this is exactly how you use leftover smoked/barbecued meat.
