breakfast quesadilla

Simple Breakfast Quesadillas

Recipe fromCookie and Kate

This easy breakfast quesadilla recipe is so delicious! Serve these protein-packed quesadillas stuffed with scrambled eggs, beans and herbs for breakfast, brunch or dinner.

Ingredients

2 eggs

Hot sauce

Pinch of salt

⅓ cup cooked pinto beans or black beans, rinsed and drained

2 tsp butter

1 tbsp green onion, chopped

1 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

1 tbsp pickled jalapeño, chopped (optional)

1 medium whole grain tortilla

½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Salsa or additional hot sauce, for serving

Directions

  1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the hot sauce and salt until they are well blended. Add the beans and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook, stirring often, until the eggs are just set, about 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl to pause the cooking process. Stir in the green onion, cilantro and jalapeño.
  3. In a separate, large skillet, warm the tortilla over medium heat, flipping occasionally. Once the pan and tortilla are warm, sprinkle one-half of the cheese over one-half of the tortilla. Top the cheese with scrambled eggs, then top the scrambled eggs with the remaining cheese.
  4. Press the empty tortilla halve over the toppings. Let the quesadilla cook until golden and crispy on the bottom, about 1 to 2 minutes, reducing the heat if necessary to prevent burning the tortilla. Flip it and cook until the second side is golden and crispy.
  5. Immediately remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board.
  6. Slice each quesadilla into 2 with a sharp knife. Serve immediately, with your favorite salsa and/or hot sauce on the side.

Notes

Make it dairy free: Use olive oil instead of butter and omit the cheese

Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free flour or corn tortillas

Loaded Veggie Breakfast Skillet

Recipe fromThe Last Food Blog

Ingredients

450 g potatoes, scrubbed, skin on and cut into 2cm cubes

3 tbsp olive oil, divided

½ tsp sea salt, divided

½ tsp cracked black pepper, divided

1 small onion, thinly sliced

1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced

3 large portobello mushrooms, sliced

1 tsp dried oregano

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/4 tsp dried red chilli flakes (optional)

90 g spinach

4 large eggs

2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

For serving:

A small handful fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped

2 spring onions, chopped

Lemon wedges

Dried red chilli flakes

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place the potatoes on a baking tray, drizzled with 2 tablespoons of oil and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. Toss well then bake in the oven for 30 minutes, turning the potatoes halfway through cooking.
  3. While the potatoes are roasting, cook up the veggies. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet, add the onion and cook over a medium heat until soft, about 10 minutes.
  4. Add the peppers and cook for 5 minutes. Once the peppers are a little soft add the mushrooms, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Cook for another 5 minutes.
