Breakfast Quesadillas

Saw this yesterday and it sounded really good! They're super easy, made with stuff I almost always have on hand, and best of all, Sweet Pea really liked it. She's a hard one when it comes to breakfast so I'm always happy to find something she likes.

Breakfast Quesadillas
serves as many as you need it to

eggs (I used 4 for the three of us)
a splash of milk
salt and pepper, to taste
bacon or sausage (about 1 slice/person of bacon or about 1 serving size/person of sausage)
shredded cheddar cheese
tortillas (I had flour ones but corn is fine, you want the small size ones)
salsa and sour cream (optional), for serving

Cook the bacon until crispy and crumble or cook the sausage through and crumble. Set aside. Make scrambled eggs - whisk the eggs with the splash of milk and salt and pepper to taste. In a skillet, melt some butter and add the eggs. When the edges are starting to cook, stir the eggs and keep cooking and stirring until cooked. Set these aside as well.

Assemble the quesadillas - put one tortilla on a plate, top with a portion of the eggs, bacon, then cheese, top with a second tortilla. In a non-stick skillet, or one with a bit of oil, add the quesadilla. Cook on the first side for about two minutes, carefully turn over and cook the second for about two more. The fillings should be warm and the cheese melted. Cut into quarters and serve with salsa and sour cream.

This is one of those easy recipes to make for as many or few people as you want. You can make the eggs and bacon/sausage ahead of time, just cook the quesadillas for a extra minute or two to make sure the filling is warmed through.
