Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Tacos: Alabama Style from TheHillHangout.com

One of the things we love to do when we travel is to eat all of the local food that we can. It really doesn’t matter to us if it’s a super fancy place or a hole in the wall, we just like to eat whatever the people who live there eat. A few months ago I had the opportunity to travel to Houston, which is a culinary delight. Houston has some FINE food! And the fact that they have many nationalities and ethnicities represented in their population lends to a wonderful variety of restaurants and styles of eating. And of course, their Tex-Mex is like no other! We ate at every Mexican joint we could find, and boy, was it ever incredible. One of the dishes we had that I came home wanting to try was Breakfast Tacos.

I’d heard about breakfast tacos before, but couldn’t really imagine that they would be good. I mean, Mexican food for breakfast just didn’t sound appetizing. But once I tried good, authentic breakfast tacos, I was hooked. Once I returned home, I couldn’t wait to make them for my family. But you know we couldn’t just make plain breakfast tacos, we had to make them ALABAMA STYLE.

The first step is to lay out your tortillas on individual pieces of aluminum foil because you will later wrap them to let them steam. This recipe is enough for 6-8- breakfast tacos.

For Alabama Style Breakfast Tacos, put about three tablespoons of butter in a skillet on medium heat.

Dice a half pound of Conecuh sausage, hot or mild, and throw in a half of a diced onion. Let them cook until the potatoes are tender – about 20-25 minutes.

In a separate bowl, scramble five eggs. Pour over skillet and season with house seasoning. Scramble it all together until eggs are cooked – about three minutes.

Spoon enough egg mixture on tortilla to cover half. Top with grated cheese if desired. Fold tortilla in half.

Open foil and add fresh pico de gallo or salsa to tacos. I usually make my own, but this time I tried out a new brand we found at Cosco. It was delicious!

Favorite Sweaters for Winter

Down here in Alabama the winters are pretty mild. If we ever have a slight chance for snow or ice, all the schools, banks, and businesses close up shop. Most days we stay in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. I don’t get super cold during that weather, so most of the time a sweater will fit the occasion. Today, I’m here to tell you about some of my favorite sweater finds for winter. If you live somewhere cold, you might want to save these for a little warmer weather, but all our southern friends can use them daily.

1. This Khaki green sweatshirt form H&M is the perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe. It’s plain, which makes it very versatile. You can wear it with a white, lace scarf, or just yoga pants for a day around the house. It’s also only $10!

4. This sweater from Lizard Thicket is a good one! It has more of a loose fit and a cute metal snap button. It is great for when you’re running out the door and it was colder than you thought, so you have to run in and grab a sweater before you’re late!

5. This simple sweater from Charming Charlie is another excellent piece. It is two-toned, being white in the front and gray in the back panel. It has a scooped neckline in the back, which is tied together.
