Who’s ready to chow down on breakfast sausage tacos with pineapple salsa? It’s smoky, tangy, and sweet all in one tortilla and it’s THE taco of the day.
While most of the breakfast tacos in my Taco Tuesday Cookbook have eggs, this is an egg-free option that will satisfy any craving!
I don’t know about you but my favorite part of these Breakfast Sausage Tacos is how little time they take to make. In less than 10 minutes, you have a full-course meal in the palm of your hand.
Are Breakfast Tacos Healthy?
Let me start with… breakfast tacos are naturally healthy! For real, they don’t need much help, the most basic breakfast tacos consist of healthy ingredients like corn tortillas, eggs, beans, veggies, meat and cheese.

Sausage Breakfast Taco Ingredients
For these breakfast tacos, you’ll need four simple ingredients:
- Breakfast sausage patties: use turkey for a leaner option or pork.
- Baby spinach: a great alternative to lettuce for breakfast tacos.
- Tortillas: your favorite flour or corn tortillas.
- Pineapple Salsa: a sweet-tangy salsa that brings out the spices in the sausage, or you could opt for regular salsa.
You’ll find the full ingredient measurements in the recipe card below.

The Best Breakfast Taco Ideas
Breakfast for dinner is my thing and when it comes to tacos I don’t hold back.
Have you seen the Black Bean & Queso Breakfast Tacos or Steak and Egg Tacos– oh. my. goodness! Steak and veggies in a corn tortilla and topped with a fried egg So. Good.
But these Sausage & Pineapple Salsa tacos are in a league of their own. Contrary to my other breakfast tacos recipes, this one doesn’t have eggs but instead brings the breakfast sausage to center stage. I love the smoky, spicy sausage paired with fresh and tangy pineapple salsa.
How to Make Pineapple Salsa for Breakfast Tacos
First, you start with classic pico de gallo, add chopped pineapple and ta-da! You have Pineapple salsa ready for tacos, salads, wraps, and anything else you can think to eat it with.
I recommend making it up to 2 days beforehand to cut back on kitchen time come Taco Tuesday. On nights like this, it’s time to sit back and enjoy time with family, friends, and tacos.
