Breakfast Quesadilla

Need something hearty, fast, and filling for breakfast?
Something that you can take on the go?

This Breakfast Quesadilla is perfect for you!

Super simple to make, only a few ingredients and you're done.  So take your normal scrambled eggs, jazz them up a bit and put them in a quesadilla with some melty cheese and you have a new version of a breakfast staple.

So let's make breakfast quesadillas.

You don't really need a recipe for this one, it's that easy.  I made this recipe for one.  This would be your basic recipe and you can increase the amount as necessary to serve your family.

First you'll want to scramble up 2 eggs.  I sprinkled on some Italian seasoning to jazz mine up a bit. Use whatever spice you like, or keep them plain in simple.  Whatever gets you going!

Take one flour tortilla, 6 inch is a good size, and place the scrambled eggs down one side of the tortilla.

Now add your shredded cheese.  I used Monterey jack.  Use what you like best.

Fold the tortilla over and place it back in a hot skillet that is on medium heat.

Place a cover over the skillet and allow the tortilla to brown on the first side and allow the cheese to start melting.  About 1 1/2 minutes.

Turn the quesadilla over and brown the other side, replacing the lid so all the cheese gets oooey gooey. Another 1 - 1 1/2 minutes should do it.

Remove from the skillet and cut in half!  There you go!

A hearty, breakfast, done in a flash!

Breakfast Quesadilla

serves 1

2 eggs
a splash of milk
2 t Italian seasoning
1/2 c Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 Flour tortilla, 6 inch

In a bowl, crack your eggs and whisk together with a splash of milk.  In a skillet over medium low heat pour your eggs and allow to set up on one side about 1 min.  Sprinkle on Italian seasoning.  Using a spatula scramble your eggs moving any uncooked eggs to the bottom of the skillet.

Take 1 flour tortilla and spoon the scrambled eggs on one side of the tortilla.  Top with shredded cheese.  Fold over tortilla and place in a hot skillet on medium heat.  Allow to cook one minute, covered.

Turn over and cook for another minute until golden brown and cheese has melted.  Cut in half.
