When I was little, egg burritos were one of my favorite things my mom would make for brinner. I knew I would love these breakfast quesadillas the second I looked at the recipe. Inside the quesadillas, you will find bacon, scrambled eggs, bell pepper, jalapeno, and cheese. But I find that paired with salsa and sour cream really made the whole recipe complete. I don't make quesadillas using 2 tortillas anymore because I have never been able to flip a full quesadilla ever. So this recipe makes 6 quesadillas and can feed 6 people.

What you need:
  • 1 lb. bacon
  • Butter
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper (any color), seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 tortillas 
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese
  • Pico de gallo/salsa and sour cream for serving
Directions:
  1. Fry bacon in a large skillet until crispy then remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Pour off excess grease (I save mine in a mason jar!). Chop bacon.
  2. In the same skillet, add a few tablespoons of butter. Over medium high to high heat, cook onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno. Stir frequently and cook until softened and browned. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  3. Turn heat down to medium-low. Add 1 Tbsp. butter to the skillet.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, and salt and pepper. Add to skillet and stir until cooked. Turn off heat and set aside.
  5. To make the quesadillas: place a tortilla in a greased/buttered skillet over medium-low heat. On half of the tortilla, layer with cheese, veggies, bacon, eggs, and then some more cheese. Fold in half. 
  6. Cook on both sides until golden brown on the outside and cheese has melted. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling ingredients.
  7. Using a pizza cutter, slice each quesadilla into 4 pieces and then serve with sour cream and pico de gallo/salsa on the side.
  8. Makes 6 quesadillas
