Anyone else looking for some easy and yummy breakfast recipes? I’m all about BREAKFAST options that work for me and my family. With 4 growing sons that eat a lot of food, I’m always trying to “up” my breakfast game and this breakfast quesadilla answers the bill for me! I want to make sure I’m giving them items that they love and (most important) that are hearty.
The toughest thing is when I feed them and then they turn around an hour later and say, “Mom! I’m still hungry!” So – the second I learned about this Breakfast Quesadilla recipe – I knew it was going to be a McClelland Family fave!
The second you take a bite – you will be in food heaven or a food coma! It’s that kinda amazing. I’m someone who is really very boring in the kitchen when it comes to breakfast. I’ll do pancakes. I’ll do scrambled eggs. I’ll do bacon. I’ll do muffins. Beyond that? I just don’t usually go! I appreciate this because it’s different and unique and creative and it’s something I know my entire family will eat! I can also tweak and make each breakfast quesadilla a little different. I love this so much about the recipe!
I’m excited to walk you through the entire process to make these yummy and easy breakfast quesadillas! You want to make sure you save this recipe or red flag this blog post because you’ll want to make these again and again and again. Are you ready for some breakfast magic to happen?
Let’s start it off with the beginning. You need to know what you need for this recipe, right!? Ingredients are the way to start! I’m going to go through everything that you need for this specific recipe and REMEMBER if you want to switch it up or swap out different items, just make sure you stick to the recipe, too! I know my kids love ham, so I could easily add that item in as an option, too!
Ingredients for the Breakfast Quesadilla:
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper
3 large flour tortillas (10″ burrito size)
1 cup cheese (cheddar or anything you prefer)
1/2 cup ground sausage, cooked (optional)
Next up! How to actually make these bad boys! I promise it’s not as difficult as you think! I know my 14 year old could easily make these if (and when) I let him! I know my William would eat these as a snack, too! Not just as a breakfast food. They are so hearty they really could be eaten any time of the day!
Directions to make your Breakfast Quesadilla:
Add eggs and milk together in a skillet and whisk well. Cook on medium high making scrambled eggs. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
(Don’t these look delish!?)
Place tortilla into a large skillet and add 1/3 of the egg mixture. Top with 1/3 of the cheese and sausage if using.
Fold tortilla in half and repeat, so you have another quesadilla on the opposite side. Heat over medium heat, until bottom of tortilla begins to brown.
Flip over and heat until the other side is browned. Remove from heat and cut each into 3 triangles.
Make triangles and you’re good to go!
Talk about a hearty breakfast!! It’s just everything and I love it so much!! I appreciate the fact that this recipe is just so doable and practical. And I’m telling you right now – I love that it’s just a great option for ANY meal. Don’t just get stuck in the breakfast zone. Really think outside of the food box here! Think about how you can easily make it into something that’s a snack before activities. You can roll them into foil to keep them warm and hot!!
Here’s my requirements when I’m trying to decide what to make my family for any meal, at anytime of the day!
1. Hearty (which I’ve said a million times, but I can’t stress enough!)
2. Something that you can eat over and over.
3. Something that you can switch up and add in different ingredients.
My kids also don’t want to eat breakfast every morning, which kills me because I know it’s important for them to eat. I like to make sure they’re getting good food in their bodies. I always hate when they go off not eating enough or not eating at all! With these quesadillas – I feel like everyone wins because everyone gets something that they want!
