How to make breakfast sausage quesadillas

The first thing you need to do is brown and crumble the ground sausage. Just heat a skillet over medium heat and add the sausage. Break it up with a spatula while it cooks.

Once the sausage has cooked transfer it to a paper towel lined plate to drain.

I used Jimmy Deans regular sausage.

Here are the type of flour tortillas I used.

Since these are breakfast style quesadillas I suggest serving them with some eggs. Scrambled eggs with red bell pepper or Mexican style scrambled eggs are some good options.

If you’re into spicy I suggest you serve these breakfast sausage quesadillas with this habanero salsa. It adds heat and even more flavor!

What is the best melting cheese for quesadillas?

There are a variety of cheeses you can use in quesadillas. I prefer using shredded mozzarella in mine. Some other options you could use include cheddar jack, Monterrey jack, or even pepper jack for some spiciness.
