"How to make a quick breakfast quesdilla"

Serves 3 | Prep Time 10 mins | Cook Time 20 mins

Why I Love This Recipe

It's a good recipe to make for a good breakfast

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound breakfast sausage, casing removed

2 tablespoons butter

6 large eggs, beaten

½ teaspoon kosher salt, regular is fine too

¼ teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground if you have it

3 10-inch flour tortillas

1 package shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Hot sauce, optional but strongly suggested


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add sausage. Use a wooden spatula to break sausage into smaller pieces as it cooks. Cook for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove sausage from skillet and set aside.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add 1 tablespoon butter. Season eggs with salt and pepper. When butter is melted, add eggs to pan and shake for 10 seconds, while stirring vigorously. Cook eggs for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Make sure to remove them from the heat before they look done, the residual heat will keep cooking them. (If they look done in the pan, they’ll be overcooked on your plate.)

Arrange tortillas on a countertop or cutting board. Distribute reserved sausage, eggs, and cheese evenly between the tortillas. Fold in half.

In the same skillet, heat a bit of the remaining butter. Add one of the quesadillas and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side, or until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden in color. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas.

Move the quesadillas to a cutting board. Cut each one into 3 wedges, get out the hot sauce, and you’re all set.
