Simple Kitchen Breakfast Quesadillas

It's been a wild ride. I've been missing home cooked meals, but not nearly as much as my husband has. Since we are gone until late in the evening these days, breakfast is the only meal that I'm able to play with.

I love hearty breakfasts!! A local restaurant was serving breakfast quesadillas but just missed the mark on flavor. It was also not warmed all the way through, but my husband loved it anyways!!! I figured this would be an easy “win” and I was correct.

Simple Kitchen Breakfast Quesadillas


4 flour tortillas

6 eggs

1 tsp water

2 cooked potatoes (leftover are fine)

1 cup shredded cheese

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 tbsp chopped (minced) onion

Salt and pepper as preferred


Chop potatoes into small cubes and cook in frying pan with 1 tbsp olive oil. I like to pepper the potatoes at this point. Cook them on medium until they crisp up.

Whisk eggs with water until nice and frothy, add onions. Then pour over potatoes. Consistently turn and break the mixture up as cooking. Set aside.

In large flat frying pan warm 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Place a tortilla in pan. Sprinkle cheese on half, top with egg mixture then sprinkle with more cheese. Turn other half of tortilla over toppings to create a half moon. Cook until lightly browned then flip and cook other side. Do this for all 4 tortillas and keep warm in oven on low.

Slice with pizza cutter and serve with sour cream and salsa!
