Breakfast Quesadillas

Breakfast.
It's the most important meal of the day.
And while a bowl of Cheerios is delicious, and easy, it's not always super filling.
I love a hot breakfast.
If I could have eggs and bacon every morning, I would.
Or pancakes for that matter.  {like my whole wheat ones}

This is an easy thing to whip up ahead of time and heat the day of.
In fact, this started out as breakfast burritos, so I encourage you to get creative with your ingredients (and microwave!)


I made 6 burritos and 1 quesadilla with the extra filling (that I promptly ate for lunch the day I drafted this post!)

To make all of this, I used:
6 eggs, scrambled
6 slices of havarti cheese
6 slices of bacon, roughly chopped
6 tortilla shells (I had "taco" size on hand, but next time plan to have burrito so that I can actually roll them properly.  Ironically enough, they worked perfectly for the quesadilla!)
1/4 onion
1 red pepper
smoked ground Chipolte
dried cilantro

Now, in looking at my list, I want to encourage you to use YOUR OWN TASTES here.
The havarti cheese melts well (and I had some leftover from my cheese frogs)
I love the smoked Chipolte flavor, instead of your basic chili seasoning, but that's my taste.
Maybe your family likes sausage more?
And shredded cheese is in every American home.  I think you can get arrested if you don't have any on hand.
Not an onion fan?  Leave it out!

Take your filling, roll 'em up (or layer in between two tortillas) and if you're not eating them immediately, wrap VERY WELL.  This is critical so they stay fresh and don't get funky.

You can even freeze them.  I'd recommend wrapping (maybe twice over) and then zipping a few up in tiptop baggies.  I hate freezer burn.  Bums me out.

REHEAT:  Nuke for about 45-60 second and check.  You don't want to burn yourself, but you also don't want cold egg.  Ick.



Good morning to you!

Oh yum, I love quesadillas. This sounds like a great recipe to try, especially since they can be frozen and reheated in a toaster oven on busy mornings.
