Easy Breakfast Quesadilla

I love having eggs anytime of the day and when you pair it with cheese and salsa... I'm in heaven. This morning I decided to make a breakfast quesadilla that would keep me satisfied until lunch. High protein and full of flavor. The chicken apple sausage gives it a little sweetness and makes everything come together. I used Applegate Farms organic chicken apple sausages. 1 sausage is enough for 4 servings but if you want to add more, by all means - do it. It took me minutes to put the whole thing together and it is portable. You could do more than one at a time if you have a large enough skillet. 

Also this recipes can be re-sized for 1, 2, or 10. Basically the ratio is 1 egg, 1/4 sausage, 1 tortilla, 2 tbsp cheese, 1 tbsp salsa. 

Easy Breakfast Quesadilla 

Cook Time: < 10 mins
Prep Time: < 5 mins
Serves: 4 


  • Olive oil spray
  • 4 cage-free eggs
  • 1 tbsp organic milk (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 organic chicken apple sausage, diced
  • 4 medium flour or corn tortilla
  • 1/2 cup shredded organic cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup organic salsa

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil spray over medium heat. In a side bowl whisk the eggs, milk and salt & pepper until slightly foamy. Pour the egg mixture in the skillet and stir frequently until half way cooked. Now add the chicken sausage bites and stir in well. Cook until eggs are cooked through. Remove from heat and place on the side. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil spray over medium heat. Place 1 flour tortilla in the skillet and fill 1 side of the tortilla with the egg mixture. Top with about 1-2 tbsp of cheese and 1 tbsp of salsa. Now lift the side of the tortilla that doesn't have anything on it and fold it on top of the egg mixture (it will look like a half moon). Press down slightly with a spatula and let it cook for about 1-2 minutes, then flip it and let it cook for another minute on the other side. Place on plate and cut into 2 or 3 pieces. Breakfast is served.
