Chicken Sausage Breakfast Tostadas

These breakfast tostadas include chicken sausage scrambled eggs piled high on a refried bean base. Avocado, tomatoes and cotija top it all off!

I have a bone to pick with the corn tortilla making people. Can someone in the know please enlighten me as to why it’s impossible to buy corn tortillas in anything less than a quantity of 25 (although usually more)?

Seriously, this is a legit question.

I mean, I’m not complaining too much because I’d happily eat 25 of these chicken sausage breakfast tostadas to use them all up, but other times, when I just need a few, I have to say this packaging issue is quite annoying.

Granted, all 25+ of them usually cost no more than like $2 so at least there’s that.

Start your day with these Chicken Sausage Breakfast Tostadas!

Tostadas! They’re kind of the secret gem of the Mexican food world in my opinion. They’re every bit as good as taco, but with more stuff piled on (a good thing!) and not nearly as complicated or time consuming as say, an enchilada. I think they’d be my pick if I had to choose just one Mexican food to go with from here on out.

I’ve done shrimp tostadas before but the idea of a breakfast tostada struck when tasked with coming up with an idea for Jones Dairy Farm’s chicken sausage patties. All scrambled up with some eggs, piled high on a refried bean base and topped with avocado slices, cherry tomatoes and cotija they’re really the best savory start to the day I can think of.

Chicken Sausage Breakfast Tostadas are a delicious savory start to the day with a bit of Mexican flair!

Jones’ chicken sausage is my go-to breakfast product of theirs (find out where it’s sold near you here). I love the lower fat content compared to the pork sausage yet they still have all the distinct breakfast sausage taste, an absolute must when you’re craving that country breakfast feel.

If you’re thinking country breakfast and Mexican cuisine are a weird culinary collision, I’ll give you that. But I promise one bite into this crispy tostada loaded with all the breakfast fixings you could want will change your mind. And maybe even make you happy about the 20+ extra corn tortillas chilling in your fridge.

    Oh, these are so fun! What a great breakfast idea! I am a BIG fan of refried beans – it’s kinda weird, actually, how very much I love them. Love the cherry tomatoes on top too – so fresh and tasty! Love this idea :)

    That annoys me about corn tortillas too. But at least they usually keep for awhile and if nothing else, they make good chips. These tostadas look amazing though – I could definitely eat 25 of ’em.

    This is just the prettiest breakfast recipe ever. I dig a great tostada, and this fits the bill. Plus the chicken sausage is perfection, love their products. Your photos are just stellar. I could stare at them all day long.
