Ingredients
  

  • ½ lb ground pork sausage
  • ¼ c chopped bell peppers optional
  • ¼ c chopped green onions optional
  • 8 eggs
  • ½ c cottage cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil divided
  • 6 8-inch soft flour tortillas
  • 8 oz shredded cheese
  • salsa, sour cream, diced avocados optional for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a large skillet on medium heat, brown the sausage with the peppers and green onions. Once done cooking, pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese and seasoned salt.
  • Using the same skillet, scramble the egg mixture on low heat. Once finished, set aside.
  • Pour ½ tablespoon vegetable oil onto a sheet pan and use a brush to spread it evenly across the pan.
  • Fold each tortilla in half and place them on the pan so they do not overlap. (See my pictures above).
  • In each tortilla, layer ½ of the cheese, the egg mixture, sausage mixture and lastly the rest of the cheese.
  • Brush the remaining vegetable oil on the tops of the quesadillas.
  • Place a second sheet pan on top and press it down a bit. Put a heavy pan (like a cast iron skillet) on top and put into the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then remove the top pan and cook an additional 5 minutes to crisp up the top of the tortillas.
  • Cut into wedges and serve warm with condiments.

Notes

Change it up!  This recipe is super customizable:
  • Use whole wheat flour tortillas for added nutrients.
  • Swap the sausage out for crunchy bacon or cubed ham!
  • Add more veggies!  Mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, onions....so many options!!
  • Spice it up by using pepperjack cheese!
