Egg Pod V2

LOOK at that crust!

In the search for the perfect breakfast with enough protein, just enough carbs, and fats to keep me going for at least 6 hours, I came across various Jimmy Dean Egg’Wich products. These are good but never enough and kind of limited in their flavor profile. After a few attempts with corn tortillas that never worked right or came out of the baking dish intact, I realized that I could just make the tortilla dough and par bake it in the dish to create gluten free soft crust that would hold up to freezing and storing. Egg Pod v2 was born and it is awesome!
