If you are looking for a quick and easy breakfast option I have just the thing – Ham and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas.  These are all the rage at my house!  They come together in a matter of minutes, can be customized, are portable if you need to eat on the run, and are big enough to share (if you want 😊).

My favorite ingredients to use are scrambled eggs, ham, and cheese.  Very simple but very tasty.  You can substitute the ham for breakfast sausage or add veggies like mushrooms, spinach, onions, peppers, etc.  Make it your own!  One thing I want to point out is that the meat needs to be pre-cooked.  You will not be cooking or heating the quesadilla enough to fully cook the meat through.  Sliced deli ham works great because it’s thin and can be used as is or chopped into small pieces.  Pre-cooked breakfast sausage (I’m partial to the crumbles) also works well.  If you do want to use something different, just make sure it’s cooked through before assembling your quesadilla!

The recipe can be found here.

As mentioned above, this is a basic recipe.  Add or replace items as you see fit.

Start by soft scrambling the eggs.  I use 2-3 eggs per quesadillas and season with salt and pepper.  Once cooked, set aside.

Heat a skillet over medium heat.  Add one tortilla.  Top with ½ the shredded cheese.  Add the ham and eggs, and top with the remaining shredded cheese.  Place the other tortilla on top.

Heat for 3-4 minutes or until the bottom of the tortilla is starting to turn golden brown and the cheese is melted.  Carefully flip over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  The rest of the cheese should be melted, and the ham heated through.  The eggs should also still be warm.

Remove from the pan, slice, and serve.  I prefer to eat these as is, maybe with a little extra salt and pepper.  Andrew likes to top his with hot sauce for a little heat.  Enjoy!

Happy Cooking!
