Eggs, melted cheese, sausage and my favorite honey mustard aioli sauce! These Sheet Pan Breakfast Quesadillas will have your whole family craving breakfast, and the kids will love you for making them (and will get outta bed in a much better mood)!
How are we ALREADY nearing the end of January? It seems like it was just last Friday that the kids were excited about being out of school during Christmas break, and now they're already talking about Spring Break!
Who else is ready for warmer mornings?? I know I am! Plus, this baby bump of mine is going to start peeping out in just a couple of weeks, so there's lots of fun things ahead. Speaking of baby bumps, I've had a tricky go of it these last few weeks with meals. I haven't been sick necessarily, but the foods that sound good now to me are much more limited than they were a few weeks ago.
Breakfast and sweets... the two food groups that have been consistently safe, and there are TONS of super yummy recipes that fit into both categories. That's where these quesadillas come in! A few nights ago, I was hungry for breakfast and wanted something fast...and these can be eaten right away or frozen and reheated later. That's about as easy as it gets!
It's better with eggs!!
There's not a breakfast food I won't eat, and I love them all. Cereal? You betcha! Oatmeal?? Yep. French toast, pancakes, waffles or cinnamon rolls? Yes, yes, yes, yes!! But if I want something that is going to stick with me, I'm going with a recipe that includes eggs: like this breakfast casserole, some breakfast tacos or these sheet pan quesadillas.
How to make sheet pan quesadillas
The last time I tried making quesadillas on my electric griddle, I made a mess. Don't get me wrong; they were very, very good but they were a little sloppy and they also took quite some time to finish since I could only make two at a time. Sheet pan quesadillas remove all the fuss and time spent making a mess. All you need is two sheet pans, some room temperature butter, 14 tortillas and whatever you'd like to go inside your quesadillas. For these, I browned some breakfast sausage and mixed it with some eggs, cheese and my very own honey mustard aioli (see below)!
Freezing & Reheating Quesadillas
Place each (cooled) quesadilla in between two pieces of parchment paper, and then place them in a large freezer bag. Squeeze out air before placing them into the freezer. When you're craving a quesadilla, simply pull one out of the freezer bag and rewarm in the microwave. That's a 60-second breakfast and a big win in my book!
