Breakfast Quesadillas

It’s only been one day since I’ve discovered Dukan-friendly tortillas and I’ve already taken it to another level: Breakfast Quesadillas! These quesadillas can be stuffed with your breakfast favorites including sausage, bacon, eggs, steak, cheese, etc. I had my quesadillas oozing with a 4-cheese blend and stuffed with bacon and egg whites. What a perfect way to start off your day!

Breakfast Quesadillas

First, make the Homemade Dukan Tortillas recipe found here. Note: use a large pan to create 2 large tortillas instead of 4 smaller ones as the original recipe makes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large Homemade Dukan Tortillas
  • 4 egg-whites
  • 5 strips lean, center-cut bacon (6% fat or less)
  • 1 slice fat free american cheese, cut into small squares
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat cheese blend of your choice (I recommend parmesan & mozzarella)
  • Salsa (to be used as a condiment)

Directions:

  1. In a skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Allow it to cool, and cut into 1 inch pieces.
  2. In a small pan, heat cooking spray on medium heat and pour 1/2 of the egg-white mixture at a time and tilt to form a round shape.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip, and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat steps to create a second egg-white round.
  4. Top one tortilla with a layer of cheese, bacon, another layer of cheese, egg-whites, and more cheese.
  5. Place second tortilla over the top and push down slightly. Microwave for 30 seconds or until cheese is melted.
  6. Cut quesadilla into 4 pieces and serve with salsa.
