How to Make a Breakfast Tortilla

Eggs and hotdogs may seem like basic breakfast food, but let me show you how they can make an extraordinary meal. You can certainly make them better with cheese and tortillas!

Are you excited to cook with me?


What makes this recipe a simple breakfast idea? Take a look at the ingredients you will need.

Hot dogs

Breakfast meals are definitely better with hot dogs. They have a smoky, meaty, and savory flavor that goes with almost any food. My kids love to pair them with bread, rice, and more.

However, too many hot dogs can be bad for the health. The Donut Whole suggests eating only one hot dog per day. You should also balance your hot dog meals with veggies, eggs, and other healthy recipes.

I suggest using chicken sausages or vegan hot dogs for better alternatives. For more hot dog recipes, you can make Crispy Hot Dogs, Sausage Rolls, and Bread Pizza!


How often does your family have eggs for breakfast? There are just so many recipes you can cook with eggs! You can use them for baking, deep frying, poaching, stir-frying, and more.

According to BBC Good Food, eggs are good for your heart, brain, eyes, memory, and weight. You can even prepare them for kids and adults in your family.

If you can’t get enough egg recipes, then I suggest cooking Fried Eggs, Boiled Eggs, Scotch Eggs, and Egg and Cheese Sandwich. What’s your family’s favorite egg recipe?


The tortilla definitely makes the dish a unique meal. It adds a crispy and crunchy quality to the dish. Moreover, the tortilla keeps the ingredients together for a pizza-like serving idea!

I suggest using flour tortillas or corn tortillas, but you can also use homemade tortillas. You might be surprised at how fun the tortillas can be for breakfast.

Everyone likes a cheesy breakfast! Hot dogs and eggs certainly taste better with cheese. The cheese adds a creamy, stringy, and moist quality that instantly improves the dish.

You can use parmesan, cheddar, mozzarella, and other types of cheese for your dish. Breakfast is always better with cheese, isn’t it?

Don’t throw away leftover cheese! You can still use it for Chicken Pizza, Bread Pizza, and Pizza Margherita. Now, you have more ways to enjoy cheese.

Just when you think it can’t get better, wait until you season the eggs with sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and mixed herbs. These herbs and spices are guaranteed to make the eggs extra tasty!

Butter or oil

Cook your breakfast in butter or oil for a better flavor. I love using butter to give the dish a more fragrant smell and better texture.

I bet you can already smell, taste, and feel this dish’s magnitude of flavors and textures. It’s chewy, creamy, cheesy, meaty, and juicy! I can’t wait for you to try it, so let’s start cooking! 


Delicious and savory breakfast in just 5 minutes? I still can’t believe it either! 

  1. Slice the hotdogs with a knife.  
  2. Fry the hotdogs in a frying pan.
  3. In a bowl, combine eggs with sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and mixed herbs.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and around the hotdogs. 
  5. Sprinkle the grated cheese and place the tortilla on top.
  6. Lightly press the tortilla with a spatula.
  7. Let it fry for another minute.
  8. Then, carefully flip it over.
  9. Let the tortilla side fry for another minute to crisp it up. 
  10. Once done, transfer the dish to a plate to serve!

It’s amazing how you can cook something of this quality in just 5 minutes! You can transform the simplest breakfast ingredients into a delicacy that’s usually served in restaurants!


Buying and storing hot dogs

  • In an article in Ramshackle Pantry, check the first three ingredients on the packaging when you’re buying hotdogs.
  • Indications of pork, turkey, poultry, or beef are good signs of a healthy hotdog. 
  • Refrigerate the hotdogs in their original packaging to last up to 2 weeks.
  • Once opened, transfer them into resealable bags and use them within three days.
  • You can also freeze them to extend their shelf life to several weeks. 

Making tortilla

While tortillas are readily available in grocery stores, you can also make them at home! You’ll need 400 grams of flour, ¾ cup of water, a pinch of salt, and a few tablespoons of oil. 

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour and salt first.
  2. Then, add the water and oil.
  3. Mash them until they form a dough.
  4. Knead it by hand or mixer until smooth.
  5. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes. 
  6. Cut it into portions on a floured surface. Roll it out and slice.
  7. Once happy with the sizes and thickness, cook them on a greased skillet over medium fire for a minute.

The great thing about homemade tortillas is you can make them in different shapes and sizes! Consider the size of your pan when making the tortillas. 

Breakfast Idea Variations

You are free to use any hotdog, frankfurt, or sausage for the meat of the recipe. For the eggs, season them however you like! Add a bit of spice and flavor with chili flakes or mixed herbs

This recipe is not best for vegan, gluten-free, or lactose-free breakfast meals, but you can always use alternatives to make a version of your own. 

For instance, you can combine tofu, kale, spinach, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, and more with eggs. Try other kinds of cheese as well, or instead of cheese, you can incorporate a bit of almond milk while beating the eggs with a whisk.

You can also cook it in different ways:

Air fryer
  1. Preheat the air fryer for a few minutes.
  2. Then, assemble the ingredients in a heat-proof container.
  3. Let it fry until the eggs are cooked. 
  4. Once the eggs and hotdogs are cooked, you can add the cheese and tortilla to air fry for another minute.
  1. Use an oven-safe dish to arrange the ingredients and let it bake until the eggs are cooked.
  2. Top it off with cheese and the tortilla, and bake for a few more minutes. 

These methods are perfect if you don’t have much liberty to check it as it cooks over a pan constantly.
