Spicy Egg Scramble with Fresh Tortilla

When you try to live frugally, you try to find any opportunity you have to use up the food you have before you do the groceries again. That was the case for me a few days ago. I had a few left overs in my fridge and decided to put them together.

My dad used to cook up a very similar scramble for us when we were kids and remembered how easy it was to put together. Putting the scramble together was going to be easy enough, except I didn't have any bread. To resolve that problem, I pulled out a tortilla recipe I had been wanting to try. Best part is that it only took me 30 minutes to put together! yes yes, cooking up the scramble AND making the tortillas. Perfect recipe for a last minute meal but still full of flavour! Follow the steps below to get it just right :)

Flour Tortilla - Part 1 (yields 2 tortillas)


  • 1 cup flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  1. Combine flour, salt, baking powder in a bowl
  2. Add oil and water and mix until the mixture comes together
  3. Knead on a clean surface sprinkled with flour until you create a smooth ball
  4. Divid dough in half and roll each half into flat tortillas (note: making them very thin will make them tortillas; making them slightly thicker will make them naan bread - both delicious options!)
  5. Cover your tortillas for 15 minutes (note: don't stack your tortillas, it will make them soggy)

Spicy Egg Scramble


  • 2 egg yolks and 1 egg white
  • 2 spicy italian sausages, outside their casing
  • 1 tbsp green onion
  • 1 italian tomato
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. While the dough for your tortillas is resting, start frying your sausage meat in the olive oil
  2. Once the meat is 3/4 cooked, add your eggs and mix well until your eggs are fully cooked
  3. Reduce the head and add the onions and tomatoes. Mix until the vegetables are warm.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste
  5. Cover and let rest until your bread is ready
Flour Tortillas - Part 2
  1. After the rest period, heat a large pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Once the pan is hot, place one dough tortilla and cook for about 1 minute - until the bottom browns slightly and bubbles start to form
  3. Flip your tortilla and cook the same way
  4. Remove from the pan and do the same with your second tortilla

These tortillas were so easy to make that I made a batch of 16 and have kept them in my fridge. They stay just as fresh for quite a long time! I would suggest you give it a try!

Enjoy! :)
