Breakfast Quesadillas

  • 2 Burrito size tortillas or Wraps (I use different flavors for variety and presentation)
  • Grated cheese (I use a mix of Monterrey Jack and Cheddar)
  • Turkey bacon, cooked
  • Whole Green Chiles, roasted until water is not seeping from them
  • 8 Eggs

 

Warm the griddle to 250 to 300 degrees. Place 2 of the tortillas/wraps on the griddle. Top both with cheese, spreading evenly to edge. Once the cheese is melted, remove the tortillas/wraps to a cookie sheet. Place next two tortillas/wraps on griddle and repeat cheese coverage and melting. Do not stack the tortillas prior to assembly.

Place two eggs in frying pan. Break the yolks and mix the eggs slightly so that the yolk is spread around and will be in every bite when eaten. Cook until yolk is no longer runny. Remove from pan. Repeat three times until all eggs are cooked. 2 eggs per tortilla/wrap.

Place one grouping of eggs (two cooked together) onto one of the cheese covered tortillas. Break another one of the egg groupings in half and place on tortilla so that the entire area is covered as much as possible. Crumble bacon bits over tortillas. Cut the green chilies into thin strips and place on top of bacon. Turn matching tortilla top as the next layer, cheese side down. Place stack onto the griddle and cook until crispy. Turn and cook other side.

Place onto cutting board and cut into 6 sections. Place on serving plate, alternating the tortilla colors. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
