Why not mix things up and have breakfast for dinner? This recipe takes a classic steak and eggs breakfast and serves it up in a easy-to-eat tortilla.  And, you can eat it on the run!

1 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp. hot sauce
2 Tbsp. butter
1 medium onion, julienned
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Two 8-ounce New York strip steaks
6 large eggs
Four 12-inch sun-dried tomato tortillas
1 cup shredded gruyere cheese
Vegetable oil, for brushing


  1. Mix the sour cream and hot sauce, and set aside for later use.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat.
  3. Add in the onions and cook, stirring only occasionally, until deep brown and caramelized, 20 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. Heat a large, cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat.
  6. Sprinkle the steaks liberally with salt and pepper.
  7. Cook the steak until super caramelized, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
  8. Rest the meat for 10 minutes.
  9. While steaks are cooking, whisk the eggs with a couple pinches salt and pepper.
  10. Quickly scramble the eggs until slightly firm. Set aside.
  11. Thinly slice the rested steaks, removing any large pieces of fat.
  12. On a flat tortilla, sprinkle layer of gruyere, then add some sliced steak, scrambled eggs and finally some caramelized onions.
  13. Roll up, brush with a little vegetable oil and griddle for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  14. Serve with a sidecar of the prepared sour cream.

Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • Substitute other meats for the steaks if desired: bacon, sausage and ham are all good options.
  • Gruyere cheese can be overly tangy for some people’s tastes. If that’s you, consider substituting other cheeses, such as cheddar, provolone or feta.

Yield: 4 servings
