Fast and easy Sausage and Egg Breakfast Quesadillas are for those times when you want something delicious to eat but you don't have a whole lot of time to fuss.
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!

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.
The easy instructions:
- Place 6 - 6" flour tortillas on a prepared baking sheet.
- Evenly spread shredded cheese over each tortilla.
- Top the cheesy layer with fried eggs.
- Top the fried egg with pre-cooked sausage crumbles.
- Layer more shredded cheese over the crumbles.
- Top each quesadilla with the final flour tortillas.
- Fry each tortilla in olive oil until golden, on both sides.
