About me

My name is Tanja (Sater) Miller and I'm excited about sharing my journey of converting my favorite recipes to gluten free! I am not a fancy cook - I prefer just a casual, fun meal. I am married with grown children (and have small grandchildren) & 3 dogs. I work full time as a registered nurse & I am a geek. Yes, I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Fringe, Firefly, Farscape and most of the other Scify shows. You will probably see a little of my geek side come out once in a while! Please join me on my journey of cooking, baking & converting every day recipes into yummy gluten free meals that everyone can enjoy (not just those with a gluten allergy!) Don't be shy about checking out my recipes....I have the gluten free version along with the regular recipe that I adapted from!

Egg Taco

Egg Taco! This is a recipe I came up with because I really missed breakfast burritos! I like a nice, full burrito and not a scrawny one and I found that gluten free flour tortillas didn't seem to be big enough. One morning.....I decided to try something a little different. I put my scrambled eggs and cheese (you can use any toppings) onto a partially cooked gluten free flour tortilla. The results were incredible. It has a slightly crunchy exterior but soft and fluffy inside. It was perfect. This is a regularly requested recipe at our house for weekend breakfasts or quick dinners. It is super easy and affordable. My grand-daughter asks for these frequently. "Cheese Tacos" at our house are similar to quesadillas....just cheese and a gluten free flour tortilla... with cheese which is folded in half & pan grilled until crispy. It goes great with soup or for a quick lunch or breakfast.

I was not going to put this recipe on the blog because this recipe is very simple, nothing fancy and it isn't one that requires any cooking skills. However, every time we have friends staying at our house and I make them.....they love them and tell me I should put them on the blog because they would never have thought about making them and it so yummy and easy that college kids, teens, busy moms and single people can whip these up really fast with minimal kitchen tools and minimal ingredients. For those of you that are into fancier still want to try this recipe because it is really yummy! These also freeze great so you can make a big batch of them on the weekend and meal prep for busy mornings, lunches or dinners. You can pop them into the freezer in zip-loc bags and just pop in the toaster oven or oven to warm them up. Using the microwave will warm them up also but you will be missing the slightly crunchy exterior which I really like! I keep my recipe really simple so it doesn't get soggy and it folds over into a taco shape really easy. I usually just add eggs, cheese and sometimes some BACON! I love bacon! :) However, you can add anything you like! This is like an omelette inside of a slightly crunchy taco shell!

Below are some photos of how to prepare this really simple, yet scrumptious egg taco:

These are ingredients I used for my Gluten Free version of Egg Tacos

I scrambled my eggs in a separate pan then got my cast iron skillet
pre-warmed on medium heat and put about 1 tbs. olive oil in pan.
I put the gluten free tortilla down in warmed skillet and placed
cheese and eggs on top. Once the tortilla was slightly crispy on
bottom, I flipped it over into a taco shape. I gently pressed down
so the cheese would stick to the other side of the taco fillings.

Remove from skillet and enjoy!

Up close look at the slightly crispy taco and warm, fluffy insides!

Ready to eat. I serve with some sliced fruit!

This is another view of one that is slightly more crispy on the outside (mine!)

This is probably one of the more basic recipes that I have put on the blog. It is very simple but
it holds it's own on the breakfast competition! My family loves these and requests them frequently!
My husband does not have a gluten allergy and he prefers the tacos made with gluten free tortillas.
He said the crunch is better. (Go figure!) If you don't have a gluten allergy, you can make these with
regular flour tortillas which will be less expensive. I prefer using the Mission gluten free tortillas since they seem to have the best texture and taste "normal". (I have tried a few other brands and I didn't care much for them). Of course many companies are reformatting their recipes and improving on their gluten free products so I am always trying new things!

Enjoy your weekend and try this simple recipe for one of your upcoming meals. I am pretty sure it will become a "classic" at your house too!
