Egg and Ham Quesadilla plated 1

Today was a nice spring day with temperatures in the upper 40’s. We ran a few errands and then took a nice long walk to not only get in my steps but some fresh air! There is nothing like being outside – you always feel so much more alive. I started to hear the birds a couple of weeks ago but today was the first day I saw one during our walk! It is always a good sign when the birds return.

We had a few burrito tortillas left over from making Chicken Quesadilla for dinner. Plus some ham from Easter. I decided to make an egg and ham quesadilla to use some of the ingredients. Even though I love breakfast foods, I rarely make eggs unless it is a casserole. My husband is the opposite. He loves to get up on the weekend and make a Layered Egg Omelet Sandwich. This is a simple recipe that you can personalize with ingredients you enjoy. When I can take short cuts without compromising the flavor, I do. For this dish, instead of chopping tomatoes and peppers I serve Salsa as a topping. You may wish to add the tomatoes and peppers to your quesadilla and other ingredients like hot peppers and caramelized onions.

I scramble my eggs with a little milk seasoned with salt and pepper. I cook in a non-stick pan sprayed with a little non-stick cooking spray. While they are cooking, I warm and brown the quesadilla in a hot, flat pan.
