Gluten free breakfast nachos are here to spice up your mornings.
These nachos are a fun way to start the day. Mr. Everything and I usually make them for a lazy Sunday morning or afternoon snack. It combines the best of both worlds. Cheesy nachos and our breakfast favorites.
I like crafting the perfect bite by getting a little bit of everything on my chip. Pops of flavor from the bell pepper and green onion balance out the saltiness of the bacon and sausage, while the egg, cheese and avocado add flavor and texture. The zip of sour cream and the crunch of the tortilla chip really finishes it all off.
We've made these a few different ways at this point. We've used processed nachos cheese, pre-shredded cheese and even no cheese at all. The best tasting and easiest choice for us is a pre-shredded mexican cheese blend. It gives us the cheesy flavor we want without stealing the show, and it's super easy because it's already shredded.
The other ingredients can be tweaked to suit your style. Like how we use link sausage as opposed to ground sausage. I just love the flavor of these breakfast links and they are great with these nachos. If you have a ground breakfast sausage you love then use that instead of links.

Chips are a pretty important decision for this recipe. Make sure you are using great tasting chips that can stand up to all the toppings without overshadowing them. I find that some tortilla chip brands are to thick for nachos and take over. It makes them great for using with dips but not for nachos like these. I usually use Juanita's tortilla chips, they are hands down our favorite tortilla chips, ever. We use them for everything. They are locally made (yay Hood River OR!) but if they aren't in your area they also ship! Just check out the link above to see their website.
Most of the cooking is done on the stop top with a little time under the broiler towards to end. To serve them while the baking tray is still hot simply line a slightly larger baking tray with a kitchen towel and place the nacho baking tray on top. The kitchen towel will insulate the hot tray and keep it from sliding around, leaving you to hold the bottle tray safely.
Go make them this weekend and let me know how you like them!
If you want to change up the cubed avocado try making guacamole instead!Print
