Using this season's garden vegetables and fruits has been a joy! I try very hard to never throw away these precious foods and find ways to use them in all dishes, including the one I created this morning. I had tortillas left from another meal and asked my hubby to make his much loved scrambled eggs. My plan was to make breakfast burritos. However, I decided to try the concept of combining scrambled eggs, tortillas, veggies into a frittata quesadilla. This turned out fine made on the stovetop, but I will also try in the oven. My hubby loved the flavors and doesn't care how it was cooked!

What a yummy breakfast frittata! It's great if you're serving a crowd. Cheesy with traditional breakfast items we love like turkey bacon, bell peppers and cheese. This will quickly become a family favorite. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Southwest Breakfast Frittata Quesadilla

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute on medium-high heat: Turkey bacon, bell pepper, onion, rosemary, garlic salt, pepper, and salt in olive oil for about 7-min; cover with a lid for 3-min.
  2. Place into a bowl and stir in salsa.
  3. Using the same pan, lower heat to medium heat, add butter, spread around pan, lay 1 tortilla in the bottom.
  4. Add cheese top of tortilla.
  5. Then add half of the meat mixture on top of cheese.
  6. Add more cheese.
  7. Then another tortilla. Repeat another layer of cheese, meat mixture, cheese, and last tortilla. (Cheese acts as adhesive to keep quesadilla together.)
  8. Spread fresh tomatoes over top of quesadilla.
  9. Whip eggs with 2-tablespoons water. Pour over the quesadilla and tomatoes; cover pan.
  10. Turn the burner down to high-low heat; cook until egg is set.
  11. Slice and serve with favorite fruit!
