I used to work in Downtown LA and one of my favorite indulgences when I was running late or having a difficult week was this delicious little, actually huge, breakfast quesadilla that they served next to the office. It was loaded with scrambled eggs, black beans, corn, an absurd amount of cheese, and bacon if you asked nicely. Since I have started working from home, I think about that quesadilla often and finally decided it was time to try and make one at home. The catch? I wanted to come up with a recipe that could also easily be frozen and popped into the microwave or a pan for a quick breakfast on the go. What I ended up coming up with was even better than I would have expected.

This is one of my SK favorite breakfast recipes. I was told by someone at work that I should make them in big batches and sell them! Lol
