Scallion Pancake Breakfast Tacos
If you didn't already know this, I am obsessed with breakfast sandwiches. I would eat one every morning for the rest of my life and never get get sick of it. I've had these delicious scallion pancakes several times and even though they are delicious on their own, making a breakfast taco out of them was one of the best ideas i've ever had.
You can obviously change up the toppings to whatever you like. I usually use whatever I have in the fridge. If you're not up to making breakfast tacos with them, they are delicious on their own and and perfect for lunch or dinner!
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup warm water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp peanut oil
- 10-12 finely chopped scallions
- 3 tbsp sesame seed oil
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3-4 eggs, depending on how many tacos your making
- 4-5 slices bacon
- 1 avocado
- In a mixing bowl, mix flour and salt. Pour in the warm water and mix with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms. Your dough should be sticky but not wet. If it seems too dry, add a tbsp of water at a time until you get the right consistency
- Use a tsp of oil to coat the top of the dough and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Make the roux by combining oil, flour, and salt. Set aside.
- After the dough has rested, use some oil to coat your work surface and divide the dough into 6 equal pieces.
- Roll each piece lengthwise into long strips. Take a spoonful of your roux and spread it across the dough. Take a handful of scallions and spread it over the roux.
- Roll up the dough tightly, creating one long snake of dough. Pull both ends and lengthen the dough without tearing
- Coil into a round bundle and press the end into the center of the coil. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough until it becomes 1/8 inch thick. Cover your dough disks with a towel as you finish shaping the rest of them.
- Heat a cast iron pan over medium heat and add 2-3 tbsp of oil. Place pancakes on pan and fry 2 minutes on each side or until brown and crisp
- Place them on a wire rack set over a baking sheet in the oven at 200 degrees F to keep warm. Keep them in there while you prepare your taco toppings
- Once again, you can use whatever you want in your taco, but I made some guacamole and had that as my base. I then added some crispy bacon and a fried egg over all that. Sprinkle with some cheese and enjoy!
