How To Make Easy Breakfast Quesadillas

This is a simple recipe, you just have to make the eggs and quesadilla in the right order!

COOK BACON  Heat a medium (about the same diameter as the tortilla) non-stick pan over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp. Remove from the pan and place onto a paper towel-lined plate. Chop the bacon into pieces and set it aside. Wipe out the pan with paper towels and place over medium heat.

PREPARE EGGS   In a small bowl whisk eggs until they turn a pale yellow color throughout. Season with salt and pepper. Add butter to pan and let it melt completely, swirl the pan around to distribute butter.

COOK EGGS  Pour in the whisked eggs into the hot pan and let cook briefly, about 1 minute. Sprinkle half the cheese over the eggs, then place the tortilla over the top of the eggs and cheese. Let cook an additional 1 minute. Carefully flip the tortilla over so the eggs are now facing up and the tortilla is on the bottom of the pan.

FOLD QUESADILLA  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and add the chopped bacon. Fold the tortilla in half, creating your quesadilla and cook until cheese is melted both sides are golden brown. Remove from the pan and cut into triangles. Enjoy right away.

Recipe Tips and Variations

This is a very customizable recipe to fit your/your family’s needs.

  • Try adding black beans or sliced avocado for a delicious meat-free option.
  • You can substitute cooked ground sausage, chopped ham, or even chorizo in place of the bacon.
  • Try using different cheeses! Mozzarella, gruyere, or gouda would be very melty and very delicious.

Make Ahead Breakfast Quesadilla

Can you prepare these Breakfast Quesadillas ahead of time? YES! 

You can make the recipe as directed, and refrigerate for up to 3 days, reheating in the microwave when ready to serve for an even quicker breakfast.

OR freeze once cooled, in an airtight container. I would flash freeze these separately for an hour on a baking sheet and then put them into a freezer-safe container to freeze for up to 3 months.
