Bacon, Egg and Tomato Quesadillas with Avocado


2 Tortillas
2 Eggs
3 oz grated cheddar cheese
1 Roma tomato
4 slices bacon (I use Turkey)
cooking spray
1/2 Tbs butter
1 Avocado, smashed
Salt and pepper


Cook bacon in microwave according to package directions until crispy. Break each piece into 2, so that you have 8 small pieces of bacon.

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add eggs to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the eggs medium hard - break the yolks so that they will cook through. Once the eggs are ready to flip, use a spatula to split the whites in half, down the middle of the pan - making 2 semi-circles. Cook on second side until the yolks are set.

While the eggs are cooking, spray a medium size skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Lay 1 tortilla in the pan and sprinkle with 1 1/2 oz cheese. Cover the pan so that the cheese will melt faster.

While the eggs and cheese are working, slice the tomato into 6 slices. Smash the avocado and season with salt and pepper.

Once the eggs are done and the cheese is melted, assemble to quesadilla: Lay 3 slices of tomato on one half of the tortilla. Lay 4 small slices of bacon on top of the tomatoes. Top with one egg. Fold the tortilla over and press down with the spatula. Remove from pan and serve with avocado.

Heat the 2nd tortilla and cheese in the medium skillet. Once cheese is melted, finish building the 2nd quesadilla.

Serves 2
