Ingredients

  • 8 large flour tortillas

  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese , grated or sliced thin

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste

  • 6 large eggs

  • 6 slices bacon

  • For serving:
  • salsa, sour cream and guacamole

Directions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Chop the bacon and add to the skillet, cooking until crisp. Remove some (but not all) of the grease.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and add a splash of water or milk. Whisk until smooth. 
  • Add eggs to the skillet with the bacon and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, scrambling into small pieces, until desired doneness.
  • Cover one flour tortilla with a thin layer of shredded cheese. Top with some of the scrambled eggs and bacon.
  • Top with some more shredded cheese and place another flour tortilla on top. 
  • Carefully set the quesadilla into the pan over medium heat. Cook until the cheese begins to slightly melt and the bottom tortilla is golden brown. 
  • Carefully flip to the other side and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove to a plate.
  • Slice and serve warm with salsa, sour cream and guacamole.

Notes

  • Add Veggies: if you’d like to add veggies to the mix, saute them after cooking the bacon. Veggies ideas include chopped onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, spinach.
  • Make ahead Instructions: Cook the bacon, tortillas (if using uncooked tortillas) and shred the cheese ahead of time.
  • Freezing Instructions: Cook the breakfast quesadillas and allow them to cool.  Lay them on a baking sheet loosely covered with plastic wrap.  Flash freeze them by putting the baking sheet in the freezer for 1 hour.  Then transfer the quesadillas to a freezer safe bag and store for 2-3 months in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the fridge, then reheat at 350ºF for a few minutes until warmed through and cheese is melted.
