Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 package Johnsonville breakfast sausages
  • 3 scrambled eggs
  • 6-8 flour tortillas
  • 1 package pre-shredded tex mex cheese
  • 1/2 each red, green and yellow bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cilantro, tomato & lime wedges for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large pan over med-high heat. Cook sausage according to package directions. Once cooked, transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and then slice up one cooled.
  • Meanwhile, mix together eggs in a small bowl. Add to pan, cooking 2-3 minutes until scrambled. Remove from heat and transfer to a small bowl.
  • Meanwhile, dice up peppers and onion until fine. Top half of each tortilla with a bit of cheese, then add sliced sausages, a bit of egg and veggies. Top with more cheese, then fold over. Cook quesadillas two at a time in a large frying pan over med-low heat for about 5-7 minutes per side or until cheese is melted.
  • Cut each quesadilla in half and serve. They also freeze well when placed between wax paper and stored in a large resealable plastic bag. Remove one at a time and microwave for a few minutes to serve, or reheat in the oven for a crispier tortilla.
