Breakfast Quesadilla with Sausage and Eggs

posted in: Recipes 0

I love breakfast. I love waking up and cooking something to start the day right. My breakfast quesadilla is a way to enjoy sausage and eggs in a form other than sandwich or just on the plate. The sausage gravy is a great addition, as it adds a little creaminess to the dish and allows you to dip your quesadilla for the perfect amount.
