Ultimate Breakfast Quesadillas


These quesadillas have everything you want for breakfast...eggs, cheese, bacon, sausage, potatoes, bell peppers, green onions, serrano peppers, and cilantro.  Topped with salsa, sour cream, and avocados, it's a darn tasty breakfast!  This makes 4 large quesadillas.

ULTIMATE BREAKFAST QUESADILLAS
3 small potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 serrano peppers, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 C cilantro, chopped
Peanut oil
8 eggs
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 lb breakfast sausage, cooked
Shredded cheese
8 tortillas
Butter
Salsa
Sour cream
Sliced avocados

Cook the potatoes, bell peppers, serranos, green onions, and cilantro in about a half inch of peanut oil. Cook until the potatoes are slightly browned and tender.  Drain on a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.  Whisk the eggs together and season with salt and pepper.  Melt some butter in a large skillet and cook and scramble the eggs until done.

To assemble the quesadillas, butter one side of a tortilla and put the butter side down on a large flat skillet.  Spoon on some of the potato mixture, eggs, cheese, bacon and sausage.  Top with another buttered tortilla, butter side up.  Cook until browned on the bottom, carefully flip the quesadilla over with a large spatula, and brown on the other side.  Cook the remaining quesadillas the same way.  Serve with the salsa, sour cream, and avocados.
