Breakfast Quesadillas

My favorite thing about quesadillas is how easy they are to make. You can easily prepare all the ingredients a head of time and just put them together when you are ready to cook and serve them.

For these breakfast quesadillas, I like to cook the meat the day before, or use leftover bacon or sausage. You can easily grate the cheese ahead of time, and even cook the scrambled eggs the night before. Doing this all ahead will make getting breakfast on the table so much easier.

My family also enjoys these breakfast quesadillas for dinner. We eat them often when I have breakfast for dinner on the menu plan.

Have you made breakfast quesadillas before?

This is the amount it takes to serve my family, but you can vary the amounts as needed.

  1. I have never made breakfast quesadillas before. They sound good though. I may have to try them

  2. Rosemary says:

    Could you make these ahead of time and freeze?

    • @Rosemary, I think it would change the texture, but I think you could easily freeze the filling. I do this all the time with breakfast burrito filling and it works great, so I think you could cook the eggs and meat ahead, and mix it together with the cheese and freeze it that way. Then you could easily put it together in the morning. You probably could also put it in between the two tortilla and freeze it that way and just cook it when you are ready to eat it. I think you would need to cook it right before serving it though. I hope that helps.

  3. My kids LOVE breakfast quesadillas! They are a staple over here! (But, then again, I do live in Texas. :) )

  4. Can’t wait to try this out! I shared your recipe on my Must Try Tuesday post….

    Thanks!

  5. What do you serve with these to make a dinner meal? Hashbrowns? fruit salad?

    • I usually serve it with fruit and I have also served it with my mexican rice as a side dish. We have been known to eat only the quesadillas if it is just the kids and I that night, my husband likes something to go along with it though. :)

  6. Leftover ham would work great in these, too!
