Try Out These Breakfast Quesadillas
When you want to try something new for breakfast, start your day with hearty, cheesy flavor with these easy breakfast quesadillas.
What You’ll Need
As you prep your grocery list, be sure to include these items. Together, they’ll make one serving, so remember to scale up if you’d like to use this recipe to feed a crowd.
- 1 8-inch flour tortilla
- 2 large eggs
- Salt and pepper
- ¼ cup cheese, shredded (Mexican cheese, cheddar, and mozzarella all work wonderfully in this recipe.)
Optionally, you could also add extra protein via sausage, chopped ham, or sliced bacon. Your first step will depend on whether or not you’re adding any extra ingredients that need to be cooked through. If you’re adding meat, you’ll need to start by cooking it in a pan on medium heat. Then set the meat aside, clean any excess oil from the pan, and drop the heat to low.
Making Breakfast Quesadillas
To make the quesadilla, beat two eggs in a measuring cup, combining them with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the eggs into the pan to cover the entire surface. When they’re nearly cooked all the way, sprinkle on a portion of the cheese to coat the egg evenly. Then add a tortilla shell on top. Once you feel that the cheese has bound the shell to the egg, carefully flip the quesadilla over using a spatula. With the other side of the quesadilla facing up now, add on the rest of the cheese, plus any cooked meat you’ve also prepared to cover half of the tortilla. Next, fold the uncovered half and cook both sides until the shell takes on a golden brown. Finally, you can cut the folded quesadilla into wedges using a pizza cutter.
