Tasty Bacon and Egg Breakfast Quesadillas

Make breakfast extra-special next time with these great-tasting bacon and egg breakfast quesadillas. Quick and easy to make, these warm treats will fill all the bellies at the breakfast table and leave the whole family with big smiles. Are you searching for a new and unique breakfast idea that everyone will love and that you can make an extra batch to freeze for later? If your answer is yes or if you never thought of this idea of ‘freeze for later’ then you might want to try this breakfast quesadillas recipe.

On a weekend day you can make as many of these delicious quesadillas as you like. Serve some for breakfast and freeze the rest for a convenient ‘breakfast on the go’ during busy weekdays. You will know that with these breakfast quesadillas you are giving your family a quick and easy meal which is chock-full of important protein. Furthermore, the avocado in this breakfast is rich in fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B 6, and 12 and folic acid. Additionally, the avocados are a heart-healthy food.

With these breakfast quesadillas you can be assured your family has the best morning start with this vitamin and mineral-rich breakfast of eggs, avocado, cheese, bacon, black beans, tortillas, and more. Sometimes I like to add a little sausage or leftover cooked ground beef to the quesadillas, just to make them more meaty, and because sausage is nice at breakfast time too, and goes well with the other ingredients. That is optional though, and you can tweak the ingredients as much as you wish, even omitting the bacon if you want a vegetarian Mexican breakfast idea.

These smell delicious while they are cooking, and they are a fine idea for a lazy weekend brunch. If it is late in the morning and you want to serve brunch which will keep everyone full until dinner, add some refried beans, Mexican rice, a fresh fruit salad, and perhaps something spicy like chiles rellenos, and the resulting spread will not only impress everyone because of the bright colors and enticing aromas, but it will be enough to fill everyone’s belly and make them happy and satisfied. These breakfast quesadillas are easy to make too, so there is nothing to worry about, even if you are quite new to making Mexican food.

Although classic quesadillas (just tortillas and cheese) suit any kind of snack or meal, adding breakfast favorites like eggs, bacon and cheese makes them especially good at breakfast time, or you could consider them for brunch.
