FRENCH TOAST TAQUITOS Are The Breakfast You’ve Always Dreamed Of


From the genius food blog that brought us pizza tacos and funnel cake tacos, comes another Mexican-ish, or maybe French-ish, breakfast delight called the French Toast Taquitos.

Amy Erickson of Oh Bite It just got some bratwurst sausages, rolled them inside some crustless bread, and dipped them in some egg wash, as is usually done for French toast. She then tossed them in a pan and fried them up.

After sprinkling some cinnamon sugar overtop, Erickson poured syrup over the toast for some of the craziest taquitos we’ve ever seen.

Between the French toast, German sausage and Mexican-style roll, this thing is super confusing, but sounds amazing nonetheless.

Check out the full step-by-step directions on Oh Bite It and browse around for other crazy recipes, like grilled cheese fries and bacon-wrapped Brownie Batter Oreos.

Taco Bell Testing Rolled Chicken Tacos That Look Indistinguishably Like Taquitos


Looks like Taco Bell is testing a new item called Rolled Chicken Tacos somewhere in Ohio. The menu addition is essentially a chicken taquito given an unnecessarily commercial-friendly name. Made with shredded chicken and a crispy tortilla wrap, the tacos are served with your choice of dipping sauces.

Grub Grade pointed out that they looked suspiciously similar to the Taquito Dippers they were testing a while back, no under a different name. A four pack of Rolled Chicken Tacos, along with two dipping sauces, is available at $3.99. Sauces include spicy ranch, salsa, guacamole, nacho cheese and reduced fat sour cream.

No official word yet on if and when these taquitos Rolled Chicken Tacos will make it out of the testing phase, but we’ll definitely keep an eye out.

Plant-based Seabirds Truck Now Serving Potato-Tempeh Taquitos

The Seabirds Truck, a solid Southern California-based competitor from season two of the Food Network show The Great Food Truck Race, has been serving a locally sourced, fresh and organic menu of deliciousness for some time now.

Their latest limited-time menu offering comes in the form of Potato-Tempeh Taquitos. The $6 gluten-free dish comes with 3 hand rolled and fried tacos served with chipotle sour cream. Tempeh is a traditional soy product originating from Indoensia, similar to a firm veggie patty material.

The menu item won’t be on the truck for much longer, so if you’re in the Orange County-area, might want to try and make a visit!


Craving: Shredded Beef Taquitos

Slow cooked shredded beef, chedar cheese, shredded lettuce and guacamole. Of course you can buy them prepackaged from the freezer aisle, but if you’re feeling spunky, you can try making them from scratch!
