Breakfast Quesadillas

Last month my in-laws came to stay with us and it was so much fun. Before they arrived I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, one of which being eggs. My father-in-law works at a dairy and always brings us some pretty fabulous goodies. This occasion was no different. He came in with a cooler full of dairy goodness. Chocolate milk, cheese, skim milk, and eggs. 
I thought for sure we’d get all the eggs in the fridge eaten before they went bad. But when I noticed that we were getting close to the expiration date I decided to get planning meals that needed eggs. I had some tortillas in the fridge and we’d also just gotten a bunch of cheese, so I decided to make breakfast quesadillas for one of our dinners. 
How much do I love these quesadillas? A lot!! I love scrambled eggs anyway, but eating them this way is my new favorite. The tortilla becomes nice and crunchy and the cheese is perfectly melted against the scrambled eggs. Yuuuum!!
Breakfast Quesadillas
medium soft flour tortillas
innards for the quesadillas, including but not limited to:
  • scrambled eggs
  • bacon
  • ham
  • cheese
  • hash browns
  • tomatoes
  • green peppers

Heat a saute pan over medium. (Grease if it’s not a non-stick pan.) Place one tortilla down on the pan. Add desired filler ingredients, making sure everything is cooked beforehand, and add cheese very last. Cover with another tortilla and heat for about 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Then carefully flip the quesadilla over to brown the other side. Cut into fours and serve.

Dip in salsa for an extra pop of flavor!

    These look amazing! My husband and I used to live right next to the Mexico border and there was a little stand that made breakfast tacos like this. We miss it ALOT!

    What a great idea! We are always looking for fun breakfast ideas for my little guy. Quesadillas are one of his favorite foods. Not sure why I didn’t think of this before!
