Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 breakfast sausages
  • 4 scrambled eggs
  • 6 flour tortillas
  • 1 (380g) package pre-shredded tex mex cheese about 2 cups
  • 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 for about 6-7 minutes until cooked through. Once cooked, transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and then slice once cooled.
  • Meanwhile, mix eggs together 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. 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.

Notes

Make sure to dice up the toppings so they’re extra small.
Don’t overload the tortillas or your quesadillas will fall apart.
Store the leftovers in the fridge for 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave, in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 375° F or in a pan on the stovetop.
Freeze these quesadillas for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave for 4-5 minutes or in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 375° F.
