This is a Pillsbury Bake-off recipe that my family really enjoys. Easy to put together with a nice blend of flavors.

This was so good! My family really enjoyed it! I added more tomatoes, 2 T. wasn't enough for me =) I also used milk in place of the half and half and added a bit more than called for. I cooked the sausage the night before, which saved some time on the prep. this morning. Next time I may try to prepare the egg mixture ahead of time also and then assemble and cook the quesadillas in the AM. We thouroughly enjoyed this recipe! Thanks so much for posting!
