Breakfast Quesadillas

This quick and easy breakfast recipe can be thrown together while the kids get dressed for school. Just a way to 'jazz up' eggs and cheese, and meat, and serve a breakfast 'sandwich' to eat on the go.  

Change up the bacon by using sausage if you prefer. The fluffy eggs and crispy tortillas make this a simple and easy recipe for a busy morning. 

Cook the bacon the microwave to help make this a speedy dish. Change up the cheese to suit your family's tastes. Omit onions if desired. 

Please keep in mind...if you're making this for more than 2, you'll want to double or triple the recipe.  That's easy enough to do too! I haven't tried it, but I do believe you could bake a cookie sheet full of these at once. 
You just want to be sure the tortilla gets browned. 
(If you try that, I'd love to know what you think)

I slightly adapted this recipe found in a Taste of Home desktop calendar, shared by Jennifer Evans of Oceanside, California. 


3 eggs
1 Tb. water
(makes fluffier scrambled eggs)
2 - 8" flour tortillas
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
(or your family's favorite - we like monterey also)
2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 green onion, thinly sliced
sour cream and salsa, optional, for garnish 

Spray a large skillet with non stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and water. Add eggs to skillet and cook over medium heat until completely set up. 

Place tortillas on a griddle. Spoon eggs over half of each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese, bacon and onion. Fold over tortilla and cook on low for 1 - 2 minutes on each side, or until cheese melts. 

Serve with sour cream and salsa. 

Yield: 2 servings
