Cheesy Egg Quesadillas Recipe

Cheesy Egg Quesadillas Recipe

Ingredients :
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons 2% milk
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons butter, divided
4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
1/2 cup refried beans
1/4 cup salsa
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Optional: Sour cream and additional salsa

How To Make :
Preheat oven to 425°. Whisk together first 3 ingredients. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Remove from heat.
Place 2 tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread with beans; top with eggs, salsa, cheese and remaining tortillas. Melt remaining butter; brush over tops.
Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes. If desired, serve with sour cream and additional salsa.

Test Kitchen tips :
Brushing the tortillas with butter isn’t essential, but you’ll love the butter flavor.
Baking quesadillas in the oven instead of on the stovetop makes it easy to make more than one at a time and, since they don’t need to be flipped, keeps the filling from falling out.

Health Tip: Butter adds richness to these quesadillas, but it’s not essential. Cook the eggs in a few spritzes of cooking spray and don’t butter the tortillas. You’ll decrease the fat by about one-third.
