Rise and Shine!
I hope you like cheese.
And scrambled eggs….and sausage…and spinach…and more cheese. And espresso? Please say yes. Let’s be friends!
I made these quesadillas because I was sick of oatmeal for breakfast. It’s been getting chilly here in the mornings and my summer smoothie drinking days are long gone. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know how much I adore breakfasty things! But lately I’ve been in a rut. A bagel rut to be exact. So, I forced myself to take the time to try something new and now it’s my new love. It’s one of those multipurpose meals, ya know? Like I would have no trouble eating this again for lunch and dinner.
And maybe I did.
I also feel the need to share that I used Morningstar Farms soy sausage in these! I love that stuff and the patties are super easy to just pop into the microwave then dice up and smother with cheese. In the future though, I’d like to try spicy chicken sausage as well.
Most of the time Sometimes though, the least amount of effort just works best for me in the morning. Hence my bagel rut.
makes two quesadillas
4 large flour tortillas
4 eggs, lightly beaten with a pinch of salt
1 cup raw baby spinach
2 chicken, pork or soy sausage patties (I used Morningstar Farms), cooked and roughly chopped
1 tbsp butter, divided
1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
hot sauce to taste
Scramble the eggs in a small skillet with half of the butter. Once scrambled, scoop eggs into a small bowl and set aside.
Heat up a large skillet and drop the rest of the butter in. Lay a tortilla flat down then sprinkle with half of the eggs, sausage bits, goat cheese, spinach, mozzarella cheese and a drizzle of hot sauce. Lay other tortilla on top and press down. Cook quesadillas until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Slice into quarters and serve.
