Breakfast Quesadilla Recipe

We love eggy breakfast at mine and I try to make it differently most morning so it doesn’t become monotonous. Breakfast quesadilla is one of our favourites and tortilla egg wraps (recipe coming soon)

My kids would eat anything with cheese and baked beans in it and that is why they’ll never say no to quesadilla for breakfast. They love the fact that I switch things up from time to time but I dare not add mushrooms to it. I would be eating it on my own if I did.

This lockdown had afforded us the chance to explore different types of stuffing and flavours for the tortilla wraps. They love it with bacon, chopped hot dogs or sausages.  We have also tried different types of wraps from spinach tortilla to plain tortilla, garlic flour tortilla and the likes. The white and wholemeal wins every time.

They enjoy eating it with salsa or ketchup. Why these children love ketchup I don’t know. Right, lets get down to business and let me show you how to make the best breakfast quesadilla recipe in simple steps. You would love this

If You don’t have access to store-bought tortilla wraps and would like to make yours, check out this recipe on how to make flour tortilla at home using simple recipes.

Ingredients

This recipe is based on a family of four

Eggs

Milk: this is optional but recommend for perfect soft scrambled eggs

Canned baked beans

Mixed red bell pepper

Chopped onions

Salt

Herbs and seasoning of choice

Freshly ground black pepper

Homemade shredded cheese

Jalapeno

Flour tortilla wraps

Butter

How to make the best breakfast quesadilla

Prep the ingredients: finely chop the onions, red bell pepper and jalapeno and set aside. Drain the baked beans in a colander and gently rinse under cold water. Leave the beans to drain in the colander. Grate the cheese if you haven’t done so already and set aside

Make the soft scrambled eggs: break the eggs into a bowl, whisk to break the yolk and season with salt, pepper and herbs if using. Whisk for another minute until combined, light and fluffy.

Place a medium-large skillet on medium heat, add butter and leave to melt. Pour the whisked eggs mixture into the hot skillet and swirl until the eggs covers the bottom of the skillet. Let it sit for about 15 to 20 seconds without stirring, this is just to let the egg set slightly before stirring.

Gently stir the eggs, lifting the cooked one over to the top to loosen the uncooked one, let the uncooked egg mixture set for another 10 seconds or so and fold over again. Repeat this until the egg is softly set. Transfer the egg to a plate and move on to assembling the quesadilla

On a low-medium heat, place a non-stick skillet, add the flour tortilla, then layer one half of the tortilla with the rest of the filling. Start with some shredded cheese, beans, peppers, onions, scrambled eggs, and more cheese.

Fold the other half of the tortilla over the one that is filled and gently press together then cook on each side until golden and cheese melted. (be careful when flipping the quesadilla so that the filling doesn’t pour out)

Repeat the process until you have exhausted the ingredients and tortilla wraps. Slice each quesadilla into 2.

Serve immediately with sour cream, salsa, ketchup, or any other dip of choice. Enjoy

Alternatively, put each wrap in the pan and fill with topping as you would with pizza, top with more cheese then finally cover with another tortilla wrap, once the bottom is cooked, carefully flip it and cook the other side until cooked and cheese melted. Transfer to a plate and slice into 4 wedges. Serve and enjoy.

This recipe is vegetarian but can be made vegan with some few smart swaps.

How to store

I prefer eating breakfast quesadilla the same day as the wrap tends to go softer. I do not recommend storing in the fridge because of this.

In the freezer, ensure the quesadilla cools down completely, wrap in an aluminium foil and store in a Ziploc bag. This recipe would keep in the freezer for up to 2 months

To reheat: simply place the breakfast quesadilla in a preheated oven and cook until no longer frozen, this usually takes about 10 minutes or less.
