This quick dish has become our go-to hot breakfast since we almost always have the ingredients on hand. We can’t even decide on a name for it. Sometimes I call it an “egg-tortilla”, sometimes “breakfast quesadilla.”
Easy to take “to-go” if needed it cooks up in about 5 minutes.
Just take a 12 inch non-stick pan and warm it up with a little butter. Scramble two eggs in a separate bowl and pour into the pan.
Once the egg has cooked on the bottom but is still wet on top, slap a medium sized flour tortilla on top and pat it down. Slide your spatula under the whole thing and flip it over.
Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top and a bit of salsa. When the cheese has started to melt, fold over the tortilla and you’re done!
You can use whatever cheeses and salsa you like or have on hand. This is usually what we have:
Cheese: Cheddar and/or Jack -sometimes we have the pre-mixed shredded, sometimes slices. Both work great. If you like spicy – throw on some pepper jack.
Salsa – Lately I’ve been buying Trader Joe’s Roasted Tomato Salsa, but I’ve also used Newman’s Own. Something chunky is usually best to add texture and flavor.
Tortillas – I usually have the 10inch flour in the fridge.
I imagine this would be good with bacon, sausage, etc. But that adds more time and this is supposed to be a quickie breakfast.
If you decide to try it, I’d love to hear how it comes out.
