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 recipe via Paul Qui, of FR favorite East Side King and the new and highly rated qui, is a healthy take on the original that’ll leave plenty of space for…more tacos later.

“The breakfast taco was a college staple for [us],” says Qui’s former marketing director Deana Saukam. “It’s cheap, fast and satisfying. Another favorite breakfast taco is anything from El Primo. Pete’s Tantalizing Tacos from Maudie’s are pretty delicious, too.”
