Butternut Breakfast Tacos


Yield

2 tacos (1 per serving)

Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to some breakfast tacos. Opting for the smaller, whole wheat tortillas makes you feel like you’re getting more bang for your breakfast buck. Plus, packing more vegetables into the egg scramble makes the cheesy sprinkle go farther.

  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup cubed butternut squash
  • 1/4 cup white onion, sliced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon low fat milk
  • 1 ounce shredded swiss cheese
  • 2 (4 inch) whole wheat tortillas
