How to Make an Egg Tortilla

Egg Tortillas make a fantastic alternative to tortillas in the traditional breakfast taco. You start out cooking them like an omelet…except you use way less egg in the skillet so that they are thin enough to ‘roll’ and thick enough to hold cheese and other ingredients inside.

Once you’ve made these egg tortillas, try them in our Ham & Cheese Breakfast Egg Tacos!

How to Make an Egg Tortilla

Yield – 1 servings

Preparation Time – 0 minutes

Cooking Time – 5 minutes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoons milk
  • seasoning salt


  • Add eggs, milk and seasoning salt to bowl. Whisk.
  • Scoop about 3/4 cup of eggs into a well greased 8″skillet. (I used cooking spray between each one.)

(A larger skillet will require more than 8 eggs for 4 ‘tortillas.’ A smaller skillet will make more, but smaller ‘tortillas.’)

  • Let the eggs set over medium high and then gently tilt and spin the skillet allowing the eggs to set up along the edge as well. Shake the skillet slightly after the egg has set to prevent it from burning or browning too much, and to move the egg along the top to encourage it to cook.
  • Reduce heat to medium low until the egg has cooked through. There is no need to flip, as the egg tortilla is thin and has cooked through.
  • Slide the egg onto a clean surface or plate to load the other ingredients.
  • Repeat.

Note: 2 eggs plus 1 Tbsp milk makes 1 ‘egg tortilla’ in an 8″ skillet. So do the math to figure out how many you’ll need to prepare to have enough tortillas.
