Updated: Jul 31, 2021
It’s a chilly morning and people around the track are slowly waking up and getting out of their tents, campers, and vans to start their morning routines. First step, making the trek to the bathroom facilities before firing up the stove or building a fire to boil water for coffee and cleaning. Once you have that beautiful java steaming in your cup, each sip cascading warmth throughout your body you begin to fill with excitement for the day. It’s race day at the motocross track and you need a filling meal. It’s going to be a long grueling day filled with the sounds and smells of racing fuel and exhaust. You love every second of it, but you need a great meal to prepare you for the sweat, dirt, and endurance needed to reach that podium. Your stomach begins waking up and letting out grumbles as you heat your cast iron on the camp stove. A day like today needs the perfect breakfast, something hot, filling and easy to eat. It’s going to be a long morning and you have to get ready for practice laps before the first moto, so what do you make? You make Gravy Boat Tacos, that’s what you make. There’s nothing like a delicious corn tortilla filled with eggs, cheese, onions, garlic, and all the fixin’s before smothered in country sausage gravy. The perfect breakfast may not exist, but this is pretty damn near close.
What you’ll need:
Half n half
Sweet Bell Peppers
Dice your onions, garlic, jalapeños, sweet peppers, and cilantro and set aside for now. – Chop tomatoes and avocados into small cubes, or whatever shape tastes best to you.
Heat your cast iron to medium low heat, add some olive oil and toss in your favorite breakfast sausage into the pan and brown the meat.
In a small pot pour in your milk and half n half and bring to a simmer while stirring. – Once simmering add your butter, sausage, freshly cracked pepper and salt, and mix well.
Gently add your sausage to the gravy mix, stir well and then add your flour.
In your cast iron add a little butter and then pour in your scrambled eggs, stirring and flipping to ensure no burning or large clumps.
Once your eggs are becoming solid, push them to one side of the pan and add your cheese.
On the other side of the pan, toss in your diced veggies (minus the cilantro) and Sautee them until the edges are light golden brown.
Warm your tortillas and get ready to toss it all together
Now smash on those tacos, get on your gear and go rip around the track for some practice laps before the ruts start developing!
