Italian Breakfast Quesadilla

Hubby and I had just gotten back into town, which meant our house wasn’t yet full with food to eat. I didn’t mind though, it just gave me another opportunity to be creative. πŸ™‚

I saw that we had some homemade marinara sauce waiting to be used up, and we had some eggs….so off I went! πŸ™‚

The result was this super easy and delicious breakfast!

Yes, I recognize the combination of ingredients may seem weird, but they go so well together!Β I truly could eat this every morning! πŸ™‚

Italian Breakfast Quesadilla

*Created by Lori at Creating Beauty in the Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • Homemade marinara sauceΒ – We love this!
  • Red cooking Wine (I decided to add a bit to the sauce to give it an extra rich flavor for this breakfast dish..loved it!)
  • Mozarrela Cheese
  • 2 flour tortillas (Use Gluten free ones if needed.)

Directions:

  • Once your marinara sauce is made (I keep extra in my freezer), then put it in a large skillet and heat on medium.
  • Add some red wine and mix well. Stir occasionally until the sauce is heated through.
  • Make some open space for 4 different eggs, making sure not to break the yolk as well as making sure the eggs don’t touch one another. Let cook until the whites are white and not opaque.Β Turn your oven onto Broil. Unless your pan can tolerate the high heat, leave the door open and your handle out as you broil the dish for about 2 minutes. Make sure you use a skillet that is safe to do this with, and be careful that the handle doesn’t get too hot. You may need to grab it with a pot holder, even though it has been outside the oven.
  • Turn your oven onto Broil. Unless your pan can tolerate the high heat, leave the stove door open and your handle out as you broil the dish for about 2 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toast four tortillas until they are a little crisp.
  • When eggs are cooked, add eggs and sauce onto a tortilla. Sprinkle it with mozzarella cheese and then cover with another tortilla.
  • Enjoy!

  1. Quesadilla is new for me, I recently bugged my hubby to take me to an Italian restaurant, but he took me to a Mexican and said there is quesadilla here also try it πŸ™‚ It was cheese quesadilla which I tried and I felt it was too cheesy, sour and I said I am never gonna have this again πŸ˜› You have just shredded some cheese over and the sauce doesn’t seem too cheesy , guess I can give it a try for sure again πŸ˜€

  2. That is really creative, Lori! I never would have thought of marinara sauce and eggs for breakfast. Sometimes I think I would be a better cook if I would think “outside the box” more often. I bet it was delicious, especially since it was homemade marinara. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us! Maybe it will help me be a little more brave to try unique combinations of ingredients.
