Breakfast finger food is a great way to start the day.

These quesadillas are filled with scrambled eggs, cheese, salsa and sage breakfast sausage which adds a wonderful savory flavor to the mix.

And they’re baked just long enough to melt the cheese and crisp up the edges of the tortillas.

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

So, it’s a good idea to make extra just in case.

About Serving

These breakfast quesadillas can also be served as a light lunch, dinner or appetizer.

Although they taste wonderful served on their own, they’re even better when served topped with salsa, pico de gallo and, or guacamole.
