What’s better than a plate of these Easy Breakfast Quesadillas with scrambled egg, sausage, scallions, red bell peppers, and cheddar cheese? Serve them alongside sour cream, salsa, and guacamole to start your day off on the right foot.
1 pound bulk pork sausage
1 large scallion, thinly sliced – both white and green parts
1 small red bell pepper, minced
8 large eggs, beaten well
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, crumble in the pork sausage. Cook, stirring with a silicone or plastic spoon and breaking up the meat into small pieces, until no pink remains, about 10 minutes.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the sausage from the skillet and place in a bowl. Set aside.
Add the scallions and red bell pepper. Saute until the vegetables are soft.
Spoon into the bowl with the sausage.
Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel.
Lightly spray the skillet with cooking spray.
Pour in the eggs and cook, gently stirring, constantly until small curds begin to form. Remove the pan from the heat and allow residual heat to finish cooking the eggs, about 5 minutes.
Season the eggs with salt and pepper.
Assemble the quesadillas.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Lay 4 tortillas on a clean surface.
Top each with sausage, vegetables, and sprinkle with cheese. Top each with the remaining tortillas.
In a large skillet, use a silicone brush to lightly brush the surface with oil. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat.
Add a quesadilla and cook until the tortilla is golden and crisp around the edges, about 2 minutes.
Use a spatula to flip the quesadilla and cook the other side, about 2 minutes longer.
Place the quesadilla on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
Repeat with the remaining quesadillas.
Slice each quesadilla into quarters and garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro. Serve with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.
