With the kids back in school, this is a perfect breakfast to make. For them and you! It only takes about 10 minutes to whip up.
If you like western omelettes you should like my western quesadilla. It’s full of eggs, cheese, green peppers, onions and ham. Not bad for only 4 points!
Part of my weekly meal prep includes chopping up veggies that I know I will be using. For this western quesadilla I chop up onions and green peppers and store them in a small container in the fridge.
I am able to make this quesadilla multiple mornings in a row and I only have to scramble the eggs for prep.
For the ham I used Cumberland diced ham. You can have 2 ounces for only 1 Freestyle point. I only used 1 ounce for my quesadilla.
I used a non-stick frying pan to make my western quesadilla, I didn’t even use cooking spray. I heated the pan up, then added the green peppers, onions and ham.
I let that cook for a minute, then I added the scrambled eggs and seasoned it with salt and pepper.
When that was done cooking I put the eggs in a bowl and wiped clean the frying pan.
Then it’s time to assemble the quesadilla. The first thing I did was add the cheese. I used 1 1/2 slices of Sargento ultra thin mild cheddar cheese.
Then I added the scrambled egg mixture.
The last step is to add it back to the frying pan.
I let it cook for about 5 minutes, until the cheese was melted and the tortilla was browned.
I serve my western quesadilla with fat-free sour cream and salsa. I only use 1 tablespoon of fat free sour cream because it is 0 points. If you go over 1 tablespoon you will have to add more points.
