Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas

Meal prep ahead of time so you can have breakfast done right every morning! Less than 300 calories per serving!

10 minutes20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 4-inch whole wheat tortilla
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 4 tangerines, peeled and segmented

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in ham and broccoli until broccoli is tender and bright green, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add eggs to the skillet and cook, stirring gently using a silicone or heat-proof spatula, until they just begin to set; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in green onions.
  4. Layer half of each tortilla with the egg mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Fold in half and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 5-6 minutes.
  6. Place quesadillas, raspberries, blueberries and tangerines into meal prep containers.*

Notes:

*Refrigerate for up to 3 days. The quesadillas can be reheated in the microwave in 30-second intervals until heated through.

    I have purchased your meal prep cookbook and love it so much. I have made these quesadillas at least 5 times!

    These are so yummy and they stay fresh! I was worried about how well they would hold up and have been pleasantly surprised. I made these using this exact recipe, just pan fried them instead of using an oven as my oven is very small. Thank you for the great recipe!

    Now i know why the blog has this name. This looks amazing!

  9. As someone who’s been trying to put on weight, this recipe is a godsend right now. Tweaked a bit for additional protein but one of my favourite breakfast meals now.

    Also, the photography for this recipe is outstanding!

    I’ve made these a couple times now. Very versatile recipe. Even the kids liked them. The garlic makes it, definitely don’t forget the garlic!

    Thank You

    Absolutely amazing.Thanks for a great recipe.

  13. About to make these – they sound delicious! Will be using spinach instead of broccoli, because I can’t quite face broccoli first thing in the morning. Also, using Mexican four cheese blend, but using low-sodium ham. Thanks for all the delicious recipes – special ordering your new book at work tomorrow (I’m a bookseller).

  14. Boy, these hit the spot! Everyone in the house has a different morning schedule, but can grab these at their leisure and have a solid breakfast! We swapped broccoli for peppers and added spinach.

    Do you think these would freeze well if I made a large batch?

    Thanks!

    These are yummy. I added a bit of sriracha 🙂 did you broil these, out of curiosity? My tortillas just browned right around the edges. I used whole wheat. 

  16. Rated 4 out of 5

    I just made these with different tortillas, but they didn’t brown at all. Any other ideas? Otherwise it’s delicious! 

  17. I can’t stand broccoli. Any suggestions for another veggie? Spinach & mushroom? 
    My book is preordered. Can’t wait to receive it! 

  18. I haven’t seen 4 inch WW tortillas in the grocery store. What brand did you use?

  19. Any thoughts on doing a meal prep specific for for different diets?  I am looking at starting a keto and I love meal prepping but no one out there has recipies for that. 
    TIA.  Love your recipes, looking forward to the book.  

  20. I really have enjoyed your first cookbook. I really need to get on this meal prep bandwagon and I can’t wait to get your new cookbook to help me.

    Hey Im a college student and I love your meal prep so much. I now barely have a meal plan and have saved myself thousands of dollars by meal prepping. I could also lose weight too if I stopped snacking :b. I also preordered your book!
