Breakfast Egg and Cheese Quesadillas

True to the mantra of this blog, one day I was rummaging through my fridge, trying to put something new together for breakfast, with minimal amounts of work. I tried these ingredients together, and the results were WOOOW!

The measurements that will follow are for one completed quesadilla, so change as needed.

-1 egg
-1/4 to 1/3 cup salsa (or picante sauce)
-cheese (Chedder, Monterey or Jack)
-salt and pepper to taste
-1 tsp olive oil

-sour cream

To make
-Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray, and heat on medium.
-Crack egg directly into skillet, beat slightly with wooden spoon, add salsa and s&p to taste.
-Keep stirring for about a minute until the eggs are scrambled and cooked.
-Open tortilla bread and place scrambled eggs inside. Layer cheese on top.
-Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel, add 1 teaspoon olive oil on medium high heat, and saute quesadilla about 1 or 2 minutes per side (depending on how browned you like it).
-Serve with your favorite side!

  2. I tried this, and so did like 10 Mubarak's- because I made it when they were all staying at my house for Rowan's wedding. VERY EASY AND GOOD! I actually make variations of this about once a week or two now!! I just sub the salsa with different igredients to change up the taste- but keep the rest of the recipe!!! Yummy! Thanks!!

  3. This has become a breakfast staple in our home. My kids request it and its a great variation to the standard egg. Thanks for expanding our culinary horizons!
