img_4975Cooking for Families

My Nanny Kids already love scrambled eggs and they love cheese quesadillas. So I combined these two loves to make a high protein-packed breakfast. Add any sides the kids like to eat with eggs or quesadillas including bacon, ham, salsa, avocado, sour cream, and so on.

You Will Need:

3 large eggs
3 tablespoons 2% milk
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons butter, divided
4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
1/4 cup salsa
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Optional: Sour cream and guacamole

What to Do:

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Whisk together first 3 ingredients. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Remove from heat.

3. Place 2 tortillas on a baking sheet.

4. Top with eggs, salsa, cheese and remaining tortillas. Melt remaining butter; brush over tops.

5. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes. If desired, serve with sour cream and guacamole.
