breakfast-egg-quesadillas

Eggs, cheese and bacon pieces are folded inside a soft tortilla then toasted to melty goodness! These small sized tortillas make the perfect sized breakfast quesadillas and can make a creative egg appearance!

It was a privilege to eat one of these for breakfast one morning (thank you, Jen!) While we were chatting that morning, Jen quickly fried eggs, placed them into tortillas with mozzarella cheese and bacon bits then toasted each side (also all done in one pan!) That was one delicious egg quesadilla. You can make these so many different ways! Jen has mentioned tomatoes and parsley and I’m sure the possibilities are broad in choice! These make the perfect individual portions and are kid friendly! Jazz up your eggs by making these fun little breakfast quesadillas in the shape of an omelet!

How do I make eggs with tortillas?

To make eggs with tortillas, scramble or cook an egg to your preference and place into a soft tortilla. Add whatever toppings you like with your eggs and toast or microwave once filled. Fold tortilla in half to create half-moon shapes like I did or place another tortilla over the top as Pioneer Women did in her breakfast quesadillas.

Ingredients for breakfast quesadillas:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 small (6-inch) tortillas
  • 1 bacon strip, crumbled (or 2 TBSP of bacon bits)
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 TBSP of canola oil, divided for frying and toasting
How to make breakfast quesadillas with egg, cheese, and bacon:

1. Preheat 2 TBSP of oil in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Crack in two eggs and fry eggs 1-2 minutes on each side or until done to your preference.

2. Place each egg into a folded tortilla and top with 1/4 cup of cheese and 1 tbsp of bacon bits. Add the remaining 2 TBSP of oil back to the frying pan and toast the tortillas on each side until golden over medium-low heat.

    Love this recipe! Is the calories based on one tortilla or two? (:

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Tash, The calorie count is for one prepared Quesadilla.

    • Terry B

    Can these be frozen? If so, how long do you heat up in microwave?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Terry, I have not tested it frozen.

    These breakfast quesadillas are quick and easy to make but I came up with a little twist on it just for simplicity’s sake…let me know what you think:
    whip your 2 eggs up in a small bowl with a 1/4 cup of milk like you are making scrambled eggs
    then add in a handful of bacon bits/pieces and another handful of shredded cheese (your favorite kind)
    now pour your mixture into a lightly greased skillet and cook until one side is done (2 minutes is good) and then flip to cook the other side
    Now scoop up enuf to half way fill a folded tortilla (or split open one of the pocket ones and stuff it) and then lightly brown on both sides.
    I call it a “Scrambled Bacon & Cheese Taco”

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Good title, Brian, it was probably much fluffier scrambled!

        • Brian

        Hey Alyona, yeah they are real fluffy and I’ve even made them with sausage instead of bacon and they taste great. While in the past I use to just buy frozen breakfast sandwiches because they were a quick & easy, but now I’ve found that theres all kind of ways to make great breakfast’s (and lunches) ahead of time, like in a muffin tin with a mix of ingredients.
        But now I’ve gotten my hands on Absolutely “The Greatest Kitchen Appliance in the World”…….an AIR FRYER ….OMG you can make dang near anything in them, mines a 6qt Magic Chef and I’m in love with it…plus its such a better way of cooking…no Grease or Oil…which is a lot healthier too.plus there is no mess to cleanup…I use these parchment papers and cut them into circles to fit in the basket but leave the corners long so it makes 4 handles in the corners so it easy to pull my food out of the Basket.
        I bet you have one too…breakfast/lunch/dinner Quesadillas are super easy and quick too..

          • Alyona’s Cooking

          Hi Brian, I do not own an air fryer but heard of them. Good to know they were fluffy and tasted great with the alternations!

            • Brian

            Lordy girl where you been living ? in the woods ? Stop slaving over that hot stove/oven and get yourself an Air Fryer !! Amazon sells them cheap, as does Walmart, My Magic Chef 5.6qt one was $89 at Walmart. Just make sure you get one thats at least over the 5qt size, You’ll want the size so you can cook for more than just one person…and they even make them bigger with dual racks..like 21 qt..which is huge.
            I reckon there are some things you can’t cook in them, like a big Turkey or Ham, but other wise I’m not sure…
            I mainly love mine so much because it doesn’t make a mess when ever I use it and if has pretty much eliminated oil and grease from my diet.
