What better way to celebrate the weekend than with a good home cooked breakfast? I CAN better it, actually. The breakfast quesadilla is a great weekend brunch. Sleep in-check. Eat well-check.
Thom whipped up this cheesy egg and potato breakfast quesadilla for me over the weekend and I fell in love with him all over again. It was that good.
The ingredients are staples here at Cove Cottage: eggs, cheese, homestyle potatoes (we used frozen), hot sauce, and tortillas.
(notice here: Thom didn’t pre-fry the tortillas because he “didn’t know I was taking pictures.” Ha! He’s lived with a blogger for 10+years! If you skip this step you can simply slide the put-together quesadilla into a pan with a little oil and fry it all at once)
Prep all the elements separately; fry some tortillas ’til crispy. Fry the potatoes. Scramble some eggs. When the eggs are almost done, top with cheese until melted. Assemble: tortilla, egg/cheese, potatoes, splash on some hot sauce. Top with crunchy tortilla. Cut into quarters.
I like to combine the sour cream and salsa verde into a creamy dip. I also like to pick up my quesadilla to eat.
These are best eaten right away while they’re crispy and hot. So, so good.
Have you tried breakfast quesadillas? What would you add to yours?
