I make breakfast quesadillas very often on weekends because I find that it is simple and my husband loves them. It takes me about half hour from start to finish. I try to make anything I cook as healthy as possible so I used whole wheat instead of white flour and no salt in the dough. I make do with whatever I have in my pantry and fridge so you do not have to use these exact ingredients. Add and take away what you like and what is available.
1/2 chopped sweet pepper
1/2 chopped small onion
1 chopped garlic
a handful of cheese
a dash of salt and black pepper
bacon or sausage
1 cup whole wheat flour
heaped tablespoon of chia seed and flax seed
1/4 tablespoon baking powder
Step 1: Combine the flour, chia seed, flax seed, baking powder and some water to make a dough.
Step 2: Place on a floured surface and roll out with a rolling pin.
Step 3: I cant roll flour in a circle well enough for a tortilla shape so I use an ice cream bucket cover. It cuts it out perfectly!
Step 4: Place on a hot “tawah” to cook. Flip when the bubbles appear.
Step 5: Repeat with the other tortilla.
Step 6: Put a non stick frying pan on oven and fry bacon. I allow the bacon fat to come off and I place it on a napkin because I don’t want to consume all the fat. I cut off the fat if it doesn’t come off.
Step 7: Wipe the bacon oil from the pan if you don’t want the fat and toss it the onion, garlic and sweet pepper.
Step 8: Crack two eggs and season with salt and black pepper, then fry eggs.
Step 10: Place eggs and bacon on tortilla and add a handful of cheese. I put a dash of chilli powder to give it a Spanish flavor, but if you don’t have that you can leave it out.
Step 11: I put the other tortilla on to make a sandwich and place it on the hot “tawah.” I cover it with the hot frying pan so it could act as an oven. The cheese melts and the quesadilla sticks together.
Step 12: When the cheese has melted, place the quesadilla on a floured surface and cut it four pieces. I served it with a simple guacamole. My husband gave the seal of approval after the first bite 🙂
