Breakfast Pr0n – Tostadas

DSC_5350 [1600x1200]I’ve grown quite fond of these sorts of breakfasts.  They are of a Southwestern flavor, sorta Tex-Mex.  The Italian sausage I used this time isn’t exactly doing the general theme any favors, it’s crying out for chorizo!  Ah, but I had this little dab of Italian still left and it needed using. (See if you can spot the fennel seeds.)DSC_5354 [1600x1200]I had a rather limp jalapeno so I tossed it into the mix, along with a shallot I found rolling about in the onion bin.  In a different skillet I cooked a beaten egg, swirling it around so as to be crepe like.  This I cut into ribbons and those went atop a tortilla that was brushed with oil and toasted a bit, prior.  Over the egg went the sauteed sausage and veggies.  I found some pepper jack cheese to cover that.  They went into the toaster oven under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese and then were plated and doused with Cholula hot sauce and sprinkled with ground seasonings.DSC_5355 [1600x1200]I’m never really sure what to call these various assemblies.  This thing is what I would have called a taco before I was taken to task by a commenter at another site.  “It’s a tostada,” he cried!  I think a tostada is just a flat taco.  Hell, I folded this one up to eat, so I guess between the plate and my teeth it transformed!
