Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

The recipe I’m sharing with you today for Sausage and Egg Quesadillas is super quick and super easy to prepare because it takes advantage of Jimmy Dean precooked sausage crumbles, prepared shredded cheeses, and a package of flour tortillas. The only thing you’ll really have to do to prepare these delicious quesidillas is fry up a few eggs, and do the assembly. BAM! You’ll be eating in no time!

These quesadillas are crispy and crunchy on the outside with plenty of melted cheese on the inside. When coming up with this recipe, I thought it would be a fun addition to layer in a fried egg to accompany the delicious precooked Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles that are heaped in the center, and nestled perfectly between two layers of melted cheese. Yep. I was right! It’s an unexpected addition, and utterly delicious.
