They may be “breakfast” tacos, but they taste just as good at dinner.

Serves 4

Ingredients (Sausage)

  • ¼ cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage, crushed, or 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound ground pork

Ingredients (Eggs)

  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 8 large eggs
  • salt and black pepper
  • 12 butterhead lettuce leaves
  • Chopped avocado (optional)
  • Fresh coriander leaves (optional)

Preparation (Sausage)

  1. In a large bowl, combine the apple cider, salt, chipotle, sage, thyme, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Add the ground pork and use your hands to thoroughly mix in the seasonings.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium-high heat until browned, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat into small pieces as it cooks. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a bowl. Pour off any fat remaining in the skillet and wipe out the skillet.

Preparation (Eggs)

  1. Set the skillet in which you cooked the sausage over medium heat and add the butter. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs just until the yolks are broken. Pour the eggs into the skillet. Cook, stirring often, until they reach the desired consistency. Season with salt and black pepper.

Preparation (Tacos)

  1. Divide the sausage and eggs among the lettuce leaves. Top desired toppings.
