Summer vacation typically means sleeping in late, but these Swiss Chard and Egg Breakfast Tacos with Pickled Swiss Chard Stems are reason enough to wake up early and get the day started.
And quite honestly, I'm an early riser anyway. That's right, I'm actually a morning person. It's when I have the greatest chance (however slim) of getting the majority of my work done for the day. So you would think naturally I'm a big breakfast person. Nope. Normally it's just a greek yogurt or a chug of orange juice and I'm on my way.
But once in awhile, when Asheley and I have the rare opportunity to enjoy breakfast together, I'll whip something up. And you just can never go wrong with tacos.
You already know we've had a ton of swiss chard lying around the house lately. And I had a jar full of my previous experiment... pickled swiss chard stems, waiting for me in the fridge.
Eggs. Swiss chard. Pickled stems. A good sprinkling of salty queso fresco. Seemed like a good taco-in-the-making to me!
And it was. The secret to these tacos success are definitely the chopped up pickled swiss chard stems. They really made the tacos come alive.
I tried a bite without the stems and guess what... ehhh. Boring, flat tacos. The pickled swiss chard stems are totally essential.
Maybe I'll have to start cooking breakfast more often. I do have a whole lot of bacon in the fridge. Hmmm....
