BREAKFAST QUESADILLAS – 3 Easy Ways

hey everybody it’s natasha natashas kitchen calm and today I’m gonna show you three ways how we make our family’s favorite breakfast quesadillas you’ll be amazed how easy these are simple ingredients and I’m hungry so let’s get started we’re gonna start with the sausage quesadillas crack two large eggs into a small mixing bowl season the eggs lightly with just a pinch of salt and a pinch of black pepper then beat them together thoroughly with a fork set the eggs aside now place a large non-stick pan over medium heat you’ll need about 3 ounces of breakfast sausage for each quesadilla or about two patties if you’re not able to find the sausage patties at your grocery store you can also use breakfast sausages and remove the casing break those up with your spatula as you saute and because they do release some oil there’s no need to add extra oil to the skillet continue sauteing and stirring frequently until the sausage is lightly browned and completely cooked through transfer the sausage to a plate then reduce the heat to medium-low in the same skillet and there’s no need to wash it add your beaten eggs swirl the eggs to evenly coat the bottom of the pan and let them cook gently once they’re nearly cooked through sprinkle the top with about 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese we’re just adding a little bit of cheese at this point to help the tortilla stick to the egg place a tortilla directly over the surface of the egg and let that rest for about 30 seconds now use a large thin spatula to get under the egg and flip it over it should flip easily if you’re having trouble flipping it means the egg needs a little longer to set so let it stay on the heat for 30 seconds then try flipping again once that’s flipped over add another two tablespoons of cheese or add the cheese to taste spread the cooked sausage evenly over half of the quesadilla fold the tortilla over to close it like a book and continue to saute on both sides until it’s golden brown once the cheese inside is melted and your tortilla is crisp and golden brown you can remove it from the skillet this is such an easy breakfast idea and takes just minutes to make once it’s out of the pan it’s ready to be sliced up and enjoyed or you can make them ahead because they reheat really well our next version is the bacon and egg quesadilla for all of our bacon lovers in a large skillet over medium-high heat add two slices or about two ounces of chopped bacon saute the bacon until it’s crisp and golden brown transfer the cooked bacon to a plate and because bacon releases more fat you can dab it out with the paper towel we love that this is a one pan breakfast and you don’t have to wash the skillet place that same pan over medium-low heat and add your two beaten eggs with salt and pepper follow the same process of cooking those gently over medium-low heat until they’re mostly set you’ll know they’re ready if you tilt the pan and the eggs don’t run then sprinkle with two tablespoons of cheese and cover it with the tortilla this process is so easy you’ll have it memorized by the end of this video once you flip that tortilla over add more cheese then sprinkle your cooked bacon over half of the quesadilla that crisp and salty bite of bacon is such a treat inside these fold the tortilla in half like a book and let that saute until golden brown on both sides and if you like that crust to get really crisp and golden on the outside you can add just a drop of oil to the skillet now I’m gonna show you our easiest version of the breakfast quesadillas because you don’t even need to cook the meat ahead of time pour the egg mixture into your skillet over medium-low heat and let that cook gently sprinkle on a little bit of cheese top with your tortilla and flip it over top with more cheese then add some sliced deli ham this is a great way to use up leftover cooked ham or you can just get some precooked deli ham you’ll need about 2 ounces per quesadilla since the ham is already cooked it saves you a step just fold that over and saute until golden brown on each side take it out of the skillet and serve right away with your favorite toppings I told you it was easy who’s ready for the taste test Oh Danny I just broke my nail still ready for the test ok small setback let’s do this anyways ok we’re gonna start with my personal favorite which is the sausage quesadilla yum yum I love how this becomes the biggest one because the texture of the sausage is in there and then just sausage is so flavorful naturally and because this has so few ingredients I think that’s why it’s my favorite it just takes it up a notch ok just cut them into little wedges hello that the outside is crisp the inside is tender and juicy and cut them while they’re warm so you’ve got that melty cheese let me show ya oh yeah that’s what I’m talking about right there and I love serving these with homemade pico de gallo I have a recipe for this on my blog I
