It is no secret that I am a huge quesadilla fan. One sure-fire way to make my weekday blue go away is to put this crispy, gooey, spicy breakfast quesadilla in front of me in the morning. This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. These breakfast Quesadilla consist of yummy turkey sausage, Mexican blended cheese, a scrabbled egg, savory spices, and a pepper & onion blend. Plus it all comes together in less than 30 min and clean up is a breeze!

Some tips to make your life 100X easier

  1. Use a frozen onion and pepper mix. It’s a much cheaper alternative in the winter when bell peppers are out of season. Also, less dished to clean.
  2. Salsa is optional, but really we all know its a necessity.
  3. These are an AMAZING breakfast to meal prep. They only have 420 calories and take no time at all to warm up in the morning.
