Breakfast Quesadillas

 My oldest son loves Breakfast for Dinner. If you ask him what he wants- more than likely that will be his response. 
   How can I blame him. Breakfast for Dinner has been a long time favorite of mine for years. And for a while now it has been kind of an unofficial tradition that we have some kind of breakfast every Tuesday night. 
  All the favorites have come around- French Toast- Cinnamon Roll Waffles- Biscuits- Eggs- Bacon- Yum....
     Tonight I wanted Breakfast Burritos- a not so favorite of the boys.Their reaction was a little over dramatic, and E-man even told his dad I was going to make "an ugly dinner". The compromise however, went over pretty well. Remember I'm a mean Mom who likes to trick her kids sometimes! 

  Breakfast Quesadillas! 

These turned out more than tasty enough to share! And the kids ate most of them. And ALL of their sauteed mushrooms I served up on the side. 
I also made sweeter versions of these with a little bit of peanut butter, honey, and sliced bananas. I popped them in the oven for 5 minutes after I took these out. They tasted great and the boys loved them! 

Breakfast Quesadillas
yields 5 Quesadillas

  •  1/2 lb pork sausage
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 medium sized flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used colby jack)

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F.
In a small skillet brown the sausage over medium heat. Add in the cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce. Stir ingredients together as the cream cheese melts. Meanwhile, mix eggs with water, salt, and pepper. Scramble eggs in a small skillet until just set and fluffy.
 Line a baking sheet with foil and fill the tortillas with a scoop each of the eggs, sausage mixture, and a couple tablespoons of shredded cheese. Don't stuff them too full, but you can adjust this based on your tortilla size. 

 Fold the tortillas over into half moon shapes and bake for 5 minutes.
  Serve with salsa, or sour cream on the side!
