Simple ingredients you'll need
For this breakfast quesadilla recipe, you'll need:
- Veggies - we are using red bell pepper, red onion, and spinach leaves, but these are perfect for cleaning out your fridge! See ingredient swap suggestions below.
- Eggs - I am a fan of free range eggs (called pasture-raised if you are US-based)
- Feta cheese and mozzarella cheese - necessary to seal the quesadilla, and the feta brings a briney flavor to the mix
- Tortillas - I prefer flour tortillas, but you can use whichever gluten-free or paleo-friendly tortillas you like
Meal prep tips
This breakfast quesadilla recipe is ideal for making a big batch at once, and setting yourself up with a healthy breakfast stash. Here are some tips!
- Assemble ahead - keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, or in the fridge for up to 3 months.
- Store well - completely cool and secure each quesadilla individually in plastic wrap; keep together in a freezer-safe bag or reusable silicone bag in the freezer or airtight container in the fridge.
- Reheat easily - these are crispy and best when reheated in a frying pan or on a sandwich press/George Foreman grill-type machine.
- Double up- double or even triple the batch so you can stock up the freezer!
