Breakfast Quesadilla

Breakfast Quesadilla

This week we’re going to talk about breakfast. We all know it’s important, but some times it just sneaks up on us. You would think that for someone who cooks as much as I do, I would have a fridge full of food 24/7. Although I do try and keep my larder well stocked, there are many weeks when I’m running around non-stop and don’t make it to the grocery to pick up our every day essentials.

Still, there are three things that I ALWAYS have on hand; eggs, tortillas and cheese. They’re all relatively inexpensive, last for weeks if properly refrigerated, and combined, make the perfect breakfast meal that will send your kids off to school with tons of energy for their day.

I had originally tried making this Breakfast Quesadilla with scrambled eggs, but when it came time to eat it, huge chunks of eggs kept falling out of the tortillas all over the floor. No one dislikes clean up more than me, so I went back to the drawing board and experimented — this time cooking the eggs like a thin omelet, topping each side with melted cheese and then sandwiching it all between two tortillas (if you want to watch how to do it, here’s a cooking video for this recipe that walks you through the simple process in detail).

My kids love this recipe so much, it’s gone into heavy morning breakfast rotation. That’s good news for me, especially for tomorrow since I just checked and my fridge is practically bare again!
