Breakfast Quesadillas are filled with fluffy, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage peppers, onions, and cheese, in between two crispy tortillas. It's an easy meal that's also freezer friendly!
These breakfast quesadillas are packed with delicious ingredients. Bacon and sausage is our usual go-to meat choice. But these quesadillas are so versatile.
Some ideas of filling choices!
Tips for making breakfast quesadillas!
- I like to use good quality thin bacon.
- Sausage links or about 1/4 pound ground sausage works great.
- I prefer heavy whipping cream in my eggs but whole milk will do just fine.
- I use 6-inch flour tortillas (fajita size) But if you want to use the larger size and fold them in half that would work fine.
Can I freeze breakfast quesadillas?
Yes, these freeze great! After cooking and assembly. Place quartered quesadillas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flash freeze them for 1-2 hours. Then remove them and place them into a freezer bag.
