Scrambled Egg, Potato, and Bacon Tostadas
Food Network
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

Vegetable oil, for frying tortillas
12 (8-inch) corn tortillas
12 slices bacon (about 1 pound)
4 russet (baking) potatoes
1/4 cup water
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
12 large eggs
1 bunch scallions, sliced thin
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sour cream, as needed
Chopped fresh cilantro sprigs, as needed
Your favorite salsa

 

In a 10-inch heavy skillet heat 1/2 inch oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and fry tortillas, 1 at a time, turning with tongs, until pale golden and crisp, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer tortillas as fried with tongs to paper towels to drain and cool completely. Tortillas may be fried 1 week ahead and kept in an airtight container at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a shallow baking pan fitted with a rack, arrange bacon in 1 layer and cook in middle of oven, turning occasionally, until crisp. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Then crumble bacon and set aside. (Bacon may be made 1 1/4 hours ahead and kept warm on baking sheet in turned-off oven.)

Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch cubes. In a 12-inch non-stick skillet heat water and 2 tablespoons butter over moderate heat until butter is melted. Add potatoes and cook, covered, over moderately low heat 6 minutes. Remove lid and cook potatoes over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden and tender. Potatoes may be made 1 hour ahead and kept warm on baking sheet in turned-off oven.

In a bowl whisk together eggs, scallions, and salt and pepper, to taste. In a skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons butter over low heat until melted. Add eggs and cook, stirring and breaking up into bite-size pieces, until just cooked through—the key here is to cook them slow and low. Eggs may be made 45 minutes ahead and kept covered.

Spoon potatoes, bacon, and eggs onto tortillas and top with sour cream, scallion, cilantro, and salsa.
