Spicy Breakfast Quesadillas


A spicy and fun breakfast or brunch your whole family will love, with sausage, egg, cheese, and green onions. This is such a versatile dish. I basically make them with whatever I have on hand at the time. Serve with salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream, if desired.

2 quesadillas


  • cooking spray

  • 2 (4 ounce) links spicy pork breakfast sausage

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onions

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 (6 inch) flour tortillas

  • 2 tablespoons nacho cheese sauce, or to taste


  1. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat. Add sausages and cook, turning often, until cooked through and browned, 12 to 16 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove sausages from the skillet and chop when cool enough to handle.

  2. Beat eggs in a small bowl with milk.

  3. Spray a small skillet with cooking spray and set over low heat. Add the beaten eggs, green onions, salt, and pepper; cook until edges are set, then gently turn with a spatula until scrambled, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove eggs to a plate and wipe out the skillet with a paper towel.

  4. Place 1 tortilla in the skillet over low heat. Top with 1/2 of the nacho cheese sauce, 1/2 of the chopped sausage, and 1/2 of the scrambled eggs. Top with another tortilla and cook, carefully turning once, just until lightly browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate and repeat to cook remaining quesadilla.

Cook's Note:

You can change the ingredients to your liking. I like bacon, but my husband prefers them with sausage.
