An Amazing Quesadilla Recipe

Quesadillas are a perfect ingredient to also use for breakfast or lunch. In Mexico, you can find this bread in all meals.

So why not include it in your breakfast. It is easy to use and very versatile as it pairs well with either sweet or savory dishes.

Today we are using tortillas in a savory recipe.

As you will see the quesadillas are folded a little bit differently than what you may be used to.

We are using the folding technique, which is like wrapping a gift and fold the outside of a tortilla across the middle.

It makes cooking quesadillas this way, very easy. Cutting the quesadillas in triangles also looks very decorative.

How To Make Egg Cheese Quesadillas

To make this recipe start with a small bowl and whisk one egg at a time. Season the egg with salt and pepper.

Then preheat a nonstick skillet to medium-hot and add butter before adding the whisked egg into the skillet. Let the egg sit for 20-30 seconds so it can turn a little bit solid.

Put a tortilla on top of the egg so it can stick to the tortilla. Flip the tortilla with egg omelet in the pan and turn down the heat to medium.

Then put a slice or chopped ham on top of the egg and add about ¼ to ½ cup of shredded cheese on top.

Fold the tortilla omelet in thirds like you would wrapping a gift and seal the tortilla. Turn the tortilla and bake until the tortilla turns a golden brown.

Be careful as a tortilla can burn very easily. Take the quesadilla out of the pan and cut it into triangles.

Repeat for the remaining quesadillas.

You can store egg cheese quesadilla in various ways. In all cases let them cool completely before storing:

  • Refrigerator – you can store egg cheese quesadillas in the fridge for a day. Let them cool completely first and store them in an airtight food container
  • Freezer – my preferred way of storing quesadillas is in the freezer. So if you want to keep them longer store them in the freezer. Put them in a freezer-friendly food container or in a Ziploc bag. You can store them in the freezer for 2 months

How To Reheat Egg Cheese Quesadillas

When you want to reheat these quesadillas let them thaw in the refrigerator.

  • Cast-iron skillet – Take a cast-iron skillet and heat to medium. Add a teaspoon of oil and brush the bottom of the skillet. Then put the quesadilla in the skillet and warm it through. This takes a couple of minutes
  • Oven – you can also reheat the quesadillas in an oven. Preheat the oven to 350℉ and wrap the leftover quesadillas in aluminum foil. Reheat the quesadillas for 5 minutes or until warm
  • Air Fryer – you can also reheat quesadillas in an Air Fryer. Preheat the Air Fryer to 325℉ for 3 minutes. Wrap the quesadillas in tin foil and warm for 3 minutes or until warm

You can also use a microwave to reheat quesadillas. It is not my favorite method but it is a fast method. Put the quesadillas on a microwave-safe plate and heat them at full power for 30 seconds.

Check to see the quesadillas are warm else repeat.
