Too Easy: Scrambled Egg Quesadillas

It’s that time again…

This one is kinda weird at first glance. I put scrambled eggs inside of a quesadilla. But wait! Think about it for a second…breakfast burritos are a thing, so shouldn’t breakfast quesadillas also be a thing? The answer is yes, because good gravy these are effing tasty!

Creamy, cheesy scrambled eggs stuffed inside a crisp, golden brown tortilla! | spachethespatula.com #recipeI made my scrambled eggs super creamy and cheesy with a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese. I swear they are not paying me to create this recipe (but maybe they should… what up Laughing Cow?), I just am obsessed with the stuff. I used the Spicy Pepperjack flavor, because ya know, we’re going with a bit of a Tex-Mex theme here.

Then, I took those cheesy amazing eggs, and added MORE cheese—sharp cheddar—and sandwiched them in a  flour tortilla that I got all crisp and golden with some butter in a pan.

I topped mine with sriracha, because we all know I have a bit of a sriracha problem, but salsa would be fantastic.

  • mixed veggies
  • herbs
  • meats

And then, what if you served them with guacamole?? Yes. I will make this happen. I need all the scrambled egg quesadillas, all the time.

Scrambled Egg Quesadillas

Yield: 1-2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Laughing Cow cheese wedge (I used the spicy pepper jack flavor)/or 1 tbsp cream cheese or other soft cheese
  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • 1 oz. sharp cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, melt 1/2 tbsp butter. Beat the eggs together in a bowl and then pour them into the hot skillet. Scramble the eggs. When they are still quite runny, add in the laughing Cow or other soft cheese, salt, and pepper. Remove the eggs (still a bit runny) to a plate and set aside.
  2. Wipe out your pan, and melt the remaining 1/2 tbsp of butter in over medium-hight heat. Lay the tortilla into the pan, and scoop the scrambled eggs onto half of it. Sprinkle the cheddar over the top and fold the tortilla up. Allow to cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until the tortilla in golden brown, and the cheddar has melted.
  3. Cut into 4 wedges, and serve with desired accompaniments (sriracha, salsa, guacamole, etc.).
