Breakfast Quesadillas: An Easy, Awesome Start to Your Day

When it comes to breakfast for athletes, there’s really no better food than eggs. They’re full of protein and keep you full for a long time, they’re fairly inexpensive so you can eat as much as you want, and they can be made quickly in a million different ways. I’m a big fan of omelettes and quiches, but these quesadillas are also high on the list.

They only take a few minutes more than just boring scrambled eggs, and taste pretty phenomenal. If you have larger tortillas lying around your house, you could always turn this into a breakfast burrito and become the king of breakfast. I like to make these quesadillas with ham and cheese, but they also taste great with bacon and spinach, or chicken, red peppers and guacamole (on top, not in the eggs).

Let me know what awesome combinations you make!
