Today’s breakfast quesadillas are super quick and super easy to prepare because they take advantage of pre-cooked sausage crumbles, prepared shredded cheese, and a package of flour tortillas.

The only thing you’ll really have to do is fry up a few eggs, and do the assembly. BAM! You’ll be eating in no time!

The following recipe for Hard Boiled Egg Stuffed Biscuits is another one I know you’ll also enjoy!

Why this recipe works:

These fast and easy quesadillas are fantastic for breakfast, snacks, and even as a quick weeknight dinner when there’s little time to cook, and you need something delicious, and protein-packed that can be eaten on the run, for when you’re off and running.

Can these breakfast quesadillas be frozen?

Sure! After you make a bunch, individually wrap each one in parchment paper and a large zip-top bag.

To reheat, remove the zip-top bag and reheat the quesadilla (still wrapped in parchment) in a microwave oven on medium power for 1-2 minutes. Check for doneness and return to the microwave for additional time if needed.

  • Top the fried egg with pre-cooked sausage crumbles.
