Welcome FGS readers!

Hope everyone is healthy and joyful!

I figured your timelines were riddled with squash this, pumpkin that, maybe even gingerbread…(this season really is F L Y I N G), so I was thinking, perhaps a taco recipe would be a nice change of pace? Perfect for an easy and delicious lunch, or can even be dressed up a little with the herbs to make a *nice* dinner! 

Herbs provide a whole host of benefits, and combined with the peppery arugula, lemon, and runny pasture raised eggs: *cue droooool.* The flavors in these little guys are next level, and while I kept this recipe mostly paleo (omit goat chèvre if keeping strict paleo), you can use any tortillas you like—I really enjoy the Almond Flour ones from Siete. These tacos are a take on a deconstructed fritatta in taco form. Thus, Frittacos. Add more veggies if you so desire, but this baby is loaded and filling. 

Enjoy and tag @fgs_leesburg in your remakes!

+dice herbs, avocado and slice tomatoes thinly while water heats.

+once eggs are in water, drape tortillas over racks in the oven. they will become a taco shell in about 3-5 mins—watch closely!

+crumble goat cheese and arrange all toppings neatly and nicely so people can build their own if they would like, or just so that it looks pretty! (we eat first with our eyes!)

+when eggs are poached, remove from water immediately and place on paper towel on plate.

+dress arugula with lemon, salt, olive oil
