I adore brunch, it’s probably my favourite meal of the week, I don’t know why but there just seems to be something magical about it, probably the booze. Now as much as I love brunch I can’t always afford to go out to eat, but thanks to the mammoth portions at Costco I always keep a well stocked fridge. These breakfast quesadillas are the perfect dish for brunch as they are quick and easy to make and you can do it all in just one pan. I paired mine with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream as for once I had all three on hand but just use whatever you have, it is brunch after all. And the best thing about eating at home is there’s no need to get dressed #winning!
2 tortillas (Costco / FFM)
1 cup of grated cheese
4 slices of bacon (Costco)
Hot Sauce (as much or as little as you like)
To serve salsa, sour cream & guacamole (Costco / FFM)
1. Heat your pan to medium, then fry the bacon until crisp and remove from the pan. Then pour away most of the fat that will have accrued, though I like to save mine for roasting potatoes!
2. Beat the eggs then fry in the pan. I like to break mine up a little so they are in pieces as they cook, but if you prefer an omelet then just go for it. Once your egg are done remove from the pan and set aside with the bacon.
3. Turn down the heat, and put a tortilla on the bottom and top with half the cheese and drizzle with hot sauce. Add the egg and the bacon, the other half of cheese, and the final tortilla and cook for a few minutes on low until the bottom is golden brown and the cheese has melted, flip the quesadilla over and cook the other side.
4. When the quesadilla is finished turn it out onto a board, cut into quarters, and serve with your favourite Mexican dipping sauces!
