Breakfast Sausage Quesadillas

Do you need an all in one dish for breakfast or a brunch?  Breakfast Sauasge Quesadillas are easy to make, and some of the prep work can be done ahead of time.  Here’s what you need to do:

  • 1 pound sausage crumbled
  • 1 sweet green pepper – chopped
  • 1 sweet red pepper – chopped
  • 1 sweet onion – chopped
  • 2 cups diced frozen hash browns
  • 2 or more cups of montery jack or cheddar or pepper jack cheese
  • 1 package 6-8″ flour tortillas
  • sour cream, salsa, or mustard for garnish

In a large skillet, add the crumbled sausage, diced peppers, diced onions, and frozen hash browns.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until sausage is browned and hash browns are lightly browned.  Remove from heat and drain any excess grease.  Quesadillas can be assembled right away, or the sausage hash brown mixture can be refrigerated a couple of days until ready to use.  To assemble Quesadillas, take a tortilla, fold it in half, and fill it with about 1/3 cup of the  sausage hash brown mixture and your favorite cheese.  Press firmly and evenly.  Continue folding and filling the flour tortillas until you have assembled desired amount or used all the sausage mixture and tortillas.  Heat a skillet to medium and add a Tablespoon of butter or coconut oil to melt.  Add a couple of assembled tortillas to the heated butter or oil.  Allow them to cook on each side until golden brown, flipping once or twice, until cheese is bubbly and melted. Add more butter or oil to skillet as you continue to cook Quesadillas. Cut browned Quesadillas into triangles with a pizza cutter. Serve right away with sour cream, or mustard, or salsa.
