One of my fave breakfasts!

This breakfast quesadilla warms me right up, with or without the salsa which I LOVE! I also love the crunch of the tortilla and the chewy cheese. Whole wheat tortillas are a healthy substitute for white bread anytime!

Breakfast Quesadillas

Serves 2


  • 2 tortillas, whole wheat
  • 1/2 c. egg substitute (or 1 egg + 2 egg whites)
  • 1 dash pepper, black ground
  • 1 dash pepper, cayenne (optional)
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 1 slice low-fat cheese
  • 1 slice onion, (optional)
  • Salsa or Tabasco Sauce


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Scramble egg (or substitute) in small skillet.

2. Lay 1 tortilla on a nonstick baking sheet. Spoon cooked egg on top and sprinkle with peppers. Top with tomato, cheese, and onion, if desired.

3. Add second tortilla on top. Press lightly. Bake 5 minutes, flip, and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into fourths to serve. Serve with salsa or hot sauce if desired.
