Breakfast Quesadillas

 This morning we had some hearty breakfast quesadillas. 
Usually, I buy homemade tortillas. I can get them at my local HEB grocery for less than $2 a dozen and every Tex Mex restaurant here will sell them to you in the drive thru. Trust me, I'm not lucky, it just means I have to hit the gym that much more!
 I bought a package from Costco because my boys aren't tortilla snobs like me. I usually buy 'cheap' tortillas for quesadillas because a little butter and a skillet can make any 'cheap' tortilla taste amazing.
I made 3 slices of bacon and then cooked hash browns in the grease. In another skillet I made scrambled eggs. I pulled cooked sausage out of the freezer. I cook the whole pound, then store it in the freezer to use as needed.
Once everything was cooked, I got started. 
Tortilla, cheese, eggs, bacon, hash browns and sausage. Add a tortilla on top. Butter the pan and the tortilla on top. Let it cook and flip. Cut in half and then in thirds. My boys ate theirs with apples on the side.
I'm joining these recipe swaps!

Such pretty setting for the yummy quesadillas. Great breakfast too! Happy holidays.

Alycia Nichols said... you do yours in butter, huh? No wonder you have to hit the gym after that!!! (I do just about everything in butter, but never hit the gym. Need I say more?) :-) I'm a big ol' quesadilla fan. We can get fresh, homemade tortillas around here pretty easily, too, because we have a large Latino population on the west side of Kansas City. I'm telling you...nothing like 'em! You know the deal! I can just sit down and eat them with a little butter by themselves! I've never made a breakfast quesadilla. I'll have to give it a whirl. Maybe tomorrow morning since Ramon will (for once!) be home for breakfast. Great idea! Ooooh...and this just gave me a great idea as to what to cook for our cul-de-sac progressive dinner hors d'oeuvres tomorrow night!!!! Thank you, Meredith! You're a wealth of information for me tonight! Have a good weekend!!!
