Crispy Breakfast Quesadillas

These crispy breakfast quesadillas with sage sausage taste incredible on every level!

With these breakfast quesadillas you can eat your eggs and sausage with your fingers…breakfast finger food is the best.

These quesadillas are filled with scrambled eggs, cheese, salsa and sage breakfast sausage which adds an amazingly delicious flavor to the mix.  Then they’re baked just long enough to melt the cheese and crisp up the edges of the tortillas.

Each bite of these breakfast quesadillas is heavenly.

I made these for guests that come over for breakfast and they were gobbled up in record time.

These breakfast quesadillas make a wonderful breakfast, lunch, dinner or appetizer. They’re scrumptious served on their own or serve with salsa and, or guacamole.

Here’s an Easy Guacamole recipe and a homemade Roasted Garlic Salsa recipe you may like (when making this homemade salsa for breakfast, if preferred, the garlic can be omitted from the recipe and it still tastes great).

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Flour tortillas (soft taco size), Jimmy Dean sage breakfast sausage, milk, eggs, butter, shredded cheddar cheese, jack cheese, pepper, and Mexican salsa.

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F.

For the Sage Breakfast Sausage:

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add the sausage.

While cooking the sausage break it up in small pieces with a spoon or spatula.  This sage sausage smells soooo good in the house when it’s cooking.

When the sausage is thoroughly cooked remove it from the pan on to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.

For the Scrambled Eggs:

In a medium size bowl add the eggs, pepper, and milk.

Next…

…whisk together.

Heat a medium size skillet on medium heat and add butter.  As it’s melting, pour in the eggs in the pan and stir as they cook.

When the eggs are thoroughly cooked…

…remove the pan from the heat and set aside for just a moment.

For the Quesadillas:

Shred the cheese and set aside.

Grease a cookie sheet with butter. Lay two of the tortillas on the cookie sheet.

Add a layer of shredded cheese on each tortilla reserving half of the cheese for later.

Next, add a layer of cooked sausage, scrambled eggs,

and salsa to the tortillas.

I used green and red salsa when I made this for breakfast on Christmas Day.  They were eaten up so quickly I don’t think anyone noticed but the green and red salsas each tasted really good with the breakfast ingredients.

Top with the remaining shredded cheese.

Deliciousness.

Top with another tortilla.

In a small bowl, melt the remaining butter…

…and brush it on top of each tortilla.

Bake in a preheated oven until the cheese melts and the outside edges of the tortillas turn a light golden color (about 15 to 18 minutes).

Cut each quesadilla into quarters with a knife or pizza cutter.

Serve hot with your favorite salsa or guacamole.

Then…

…enjoy…

…each and every bite.

  1. This was very good! Easy to make!

  2. Just finished eating these and they were DELICIOUS. Granted the top tortilla did not stick well to ingredients but this is a minor problem that did not prevent a tasty meal and they turned out nice and crispy and delicious. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes! Next time I’ll try with the jalapenos.

  3. Pretty yummy, but it took me awhile to cook everything and assemble it, so maybe that’s just me. They didn’t melt together well enough in the oven, so maybe a quesadilla maker might be better. Again, maybe it was just me. Not a bad idea for a recipe tho!

    • Hi Amanda, thank you for letting me know how they turned out. I’m sorry they didn’t melt together good in the oven. One thing I’ll do when I’m trying to melt cheese on the inside of something is use a cheese grater that has small grating holes in it. Maybe you tried this in your recipe already but I have a couple cheese graters and like to use the one that makes small and skinny strands of cheese. It helps with getting the cheese melted a bit faster. Thank you again and have a great rest of the weekend!

  4. Those look divine! I think I would have to add some jalapenos and avocado chunks!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
