Breakfast Quesadillas

Start the day right with quesadillas stuffed with fillings you cook on the griddle.

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c diced potatoes
  • 1/2 lb. thick-sliced bacon
  • 3 c grated Mexican-blend cheese
  • 1 1/2 t garlic, minced
  • 1/4 c red onion, chopped
  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 1/4 to 1/2 c salsa or salsa verde
  • salt, pepper, cilantro to taste

Directions:

Begin by cooking the bacon on the griddle until it is just crisp. Remove it from the griddle and wrap it in foil to keep it warm.

Next, cook the onion and garlic in the bacon grease. When they are transparent, add the potatoes. Push them to one end of the griddle and cook them until they are golden brown.

In the meantime, whisk the eggs and pour them onto the other end of the griddle. Use a spatula to break them into scrambled curds. When the eggs are set, remove them from the griddle.

Now, dice the bacon and mix it with the eggs and potato mixture.

Place two tortillas on the griddle and top each with 1/2 cup cheese, then half of the egg mixture, about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons salsa or salsa verde, another 1/2 cup cheese and the remaining tortillas. Cook them until the first side is golden brown, and then flip the quesadillas to brown the other side.

Add some yum to your lunchtime salad with fresh, hot flatbread.
