How do you like your eggs?

Scrambled? Sunny-Side up? Fried to crispy perfection? Or maybe soft and swirled with cheese?

Well when it comes to these baller breakfast tostadas… ANYTHING GOES!

Breakfast Tostadas with Fried Eggs

Since I’m queen of indecision, I made both fried and scrambled eggs for this tasty tostada recipe.

The recipe is CRAZY simple and gloriously customizable.

For the tostada shell itself, you can buy them pre-crisped at the grocery store in the tortilla aisle or make your own using soft corn tortillas.

Once we have a crispity crunchity base, we’ll cover it with creamy refried beans seasoned with a blend of garlic, cumin, chili powder, and cayenne. And as a speedy shortcut, you can even use pre-made taco seasoning here!

Next we’ll whip up a fresh and tasty Pico de Gallo using ripe tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lime juice — the perfect topping for our fried or scrambled eggs!

All that’s left to do is choose your favorite “extras” and dig in!

Recipe Notes

Since I always have a package on hand, I used store bought crispy tostada shells.

To make your own tostadas from soft corn tortillas:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Lightly spray both sides of the tortillas with all-natural cooking spray and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet spritzed with oil.
  3. Sprinkle with a teeny pinch of salt and bake for 10 minutes, flipping them over at the 5-minute mark to nicely crisp both sides.

    Absolutely delicious and super easy!

  • Daphne M. Stannard

    Two of my favorite toppings are pickled jalapenos chopped very fine, and sliced black olives, not necessarily together. I also like to add fresh lime juice to my beans.
