Bacon, Egg and Cheese Quesadillas

"Came up with this when I didn't want a regular breakfast biscuit. Cooking bacon isn't included in cooking time. If you want to save time,and a step or two just mix in the cooked bacon with the eggs before you scramble them. Heat level of salsa is Chef's choice. Don't be put off the long list of directions, it's easier than it looks. Submitted to "ZAAR" on August 24,2007"

    These are unbelievably delicious. I added a chopped fresh tomato and green onions to the egg scramble and crisped the pants off the bacon. I found myself with a new go to breakfast indulgence!!!

    This was really good! It was easy to make and has ingredients i usually have on hand I didn't scramble my eggs before cooking them. Instead I fried them until the white was almost cooked and instead of flipping the eggs over, I "scrambled" them with the spatula. I find the eggs have a little bit more flavor that way. The bacon gave the quesadilla a good flavor. I will be making these again. Thanks for sharing your recipe shapeweaver. Made for PAC Spring '08.

    I made one with bacon (took the poster's tip and put the bacon in with the eggs) and made one with cooked breakfast sausage. They were both wonderful! Thank you so much for posting ... this will definitely be made often!

Even though I haven't been here for a long time, MY recipes aren't up for adoption. :) And don't change any of them either. ;)
