Sausage and Mushroom Brinner Tacos

Erin from $5 Dinners blends sautéed mushrooms and sausage for a “Brinner” taco perfect for the late-night breakfast craving

Sausage Mushroom Breakfast Tacos by $5 Dinners

Breakfast tacos, typically made with scrambled eggs and some mix-ins. But these delicious tacos don’t have any eggs, so I’m having a hard time calling them “breakfast tacos.” They have breakfast sausage, along with some sliced mushrooms and other veggies, so I’ve settled on “Brinner (A.K.A Breakfast for Dinner) Tacos”…but they could totally be for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and of course, brinner. The blend of mushrooms and meat give them a hearty texture perfect for dinner, but with the comfort of breakfast.

Add your favorite tacos toppings (shredded cheese, avocado slices, sour cream or pico de gallo) to these for a fabulous and easy weeknight meal.

I can’t think of a better way to utilize the mushrooms in your fridge than with a late-night breakfast feast!
