Breakfast Quesadillas Recipe (3 Easy Ways)
Breakfast quesadillas are the easiest one-pan breakfast and take just minutes to make. Change up the egg quesadillas with your favorite protein. Watch the video tutorial to see how we made them with breakfast sausage, bacon, and sliced deli ham.
Ingredients for 1 Breakfast Quesadilla:
- 1 flour tortilla, 8” in diameter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Pinch salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese, (1 oz) Mexican cheese, medium cheddar or mozzarella
Select Your Meat/ Protein:
- 3 oz breakfast Sausage, 2 patties
- 2 slices ham, (2 oz) chopped
- 2 slices bacon, (2 oz), sliced
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Cook Sausage or Bacon until browned and cooked through then remove to a plate. If using cooked ham, you can heat it up or just add it over the cheese in step 4. Wipe excess oil from skillet if needed. Reduce heat to low.
In a measuring cup, add 2 eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper, or add seasoning to taste. Beat with a fork. Add beaten eggs and swirl to spread evenly over the bottom of the pan. Cook over low heat until When eggs are nearly cooked through (if you tilt the pan they shouldn't run).
Sprinkle the top with 2 Tbsp shredded cheese then cover with a tortilla. The cheese will make the tortilla stick to the egg. Use a large spatula to get under the egg and quickly flip over.
Sprinkle another 2 Tbsp of cheese or add cheese to taste. Sprinkle your cooked protein (sausage, bacon or ham) over half of the surface and fold the tortilla in half. Sautee on both sides until golden brown.* Remove from skillet and use a pizza cutter to cut quesadilla into wedges and serve warm.
*COOK'S TIP: Adding a little oil to the pan will help the outside of the tortilla crisp nicely.
