Tasty, Easy and High Protein Breakfast Quesadillas

Almost every morning I make myself and my fiance a breakfast quesadilla. It’s nothing fancy but it’s delicious and starts our day out in the tastiest way! It’s a very simple recipe that requires only 5 ingredients-tortilla of choice, egg, slice of cheese, salt and olive oil. It takes all of 5 minutes to make and it all happens in one small fry pan.

Seems like a pretty good morning choice, right? Many of the Drizzle Kitchen clients agree! Now listen, if you have an egg allergy you can absolutely sub scrambled tofu or JustEgg or even a smear of smashed beans! Have a dairy allergy, use your favorite dairy free cheese (there are some really great ones out now, try my latest favorite Never Better Foods). I love using Siete Foods Almond Flour tortillas because of the protein but you can also use flour, corn or whatever is the safe tortilla for you to enjoy!

For all my protein people, if you use the almond flour tortilla + chicken egg + dairy cheese you have about 18 g of protein! Add a little bit of cottage cheese or some greek yogurt on the side topped with blueberries and you’ve got a delicious and nourishing breakfast that will keep your tummy happy for hours.
