Potato and Egg Breakfast Tacos

This recipe is featured in our 20 Meals from Costco for $150 Meal Plan #1.

I knew that today would be a BUSY day, so I planned accordingly.  Easy “breakfast dinner.”  I try to incorporate breakfast for dinner at least 2 or 3 times a month.  Helps keep the cost down and brings a little more variety to the table.  (Pun intended.) Plus, I was in no position to be whipping up a fancy meal after today’s media frenzy!!!

(Again…no photo.  I know these are an integral part of my posts.  Camera battery is charging and the camera will be back in action tomorrow!)
