Breakfast Quesadilla

Breakfast Quesadilla

I made this breakfast quesadilla for my husband and it turned out so good I made another one for myself. I made a simple quesadilla filled with extra sharp cheddar and some of my husband’s favorite hot sauce then cooked it until golden outside and gooey inside. I served the cheesy quesadilla topped with a steamed egg, avocado slices, green onions, tomatoes, and fresh cilantro. I can’t believe I’ve never thought to make this combination before but you can bet I will be making it again…soon. My husband and I both thought this breakfast quesadilla was delicious.

How to Make a Breakfast Quesadilla

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place the cheese evenly on one tortilla then drizzle with your favorite hot sauce.

Top with the remaining tortilla and place into the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes, before flipping over and cooking the other side for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the skillet and place on a cutting board. Cut into four wedges and place them on a plate.

Once the quesadilla is cooking on the second side, heat a small skillet that is coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Crack the egg into the pan and season with salt and pepper.

Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add a tablespoon of water to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 1 minute or until the yolk is clouded over. Do not overcook or the yolk will be hard.

Serve the steamed egg on top of the quesadilla then top with avocado slices, green onion, diced tomato, and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
