    • Grated some Manchego cheese (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup per taco)
    • The piles of cheese were heated on a hot griddle until the bottom browned nicely - then add the filling to warm (or have pre-warmed filling)
    • The filling consisted of bacon, a little crumbled sausage, diced potatoes, onions, and of course, more cheese.  However, you can use scrambled eggs, or anything you can think of that you like for a savory breakfast.
    • When almost done, one side was folded over the other, then removed from the heat and allowed to slightly cool - shortly the cheese "shell" hardened and are ready to eat.
    Result: crisp cheesy shell, moist potatoes complementing the smoky bacon and tang of the onion

    I saw something similar on the food network, except it was a pizza with a cheese crust like this. [​IMG]
