How to Make a Keto Breakfast Quesadilla

Now that you know what we are using for the ingredients, here is how you make a keto breakfast quesadilla.

First, let’s get a bowl and mix up our eggs. Scramble your eggs and add in the pancetta. I like to salt and pepper my scramble eggs before I cook them.

I also like to add a tad or drop of salsa to my egg mixture to help give the entire keto breakfast quesadilla a little bit of spice. Use that whisk and mix up your egg mixture.

Next, let’s butter our skillet. I like to use a skillet that is just a wee bit larger than our keto tortilla. Let the butter melt for a few seconds and over medium heat – throw in your egg mixture.

The eggs and pancetta will cook quickly. I told you this was a quick and easy keto breakfast, didn’t I?

Now, are the eggs cooked to your liking? I know some people are okay with runny eggs, me – not so much. After the eggs are cooked, remove them from the pan.

Let’s melt a little bit more butter in your pan. Swirl it around so that the entire skillet is covered in melted butter. You don’t want to leave butter melting for too long because black butter is just gross.

Next, throw in your low carb tortilla on top of the butter. On the side facing you, place your cheese. Let the cheese melt for 15 or so seconds and then top the cheese with your cooked egg mixture.

If you are a cheese lover, feel free to add more cheese on top of the cooked eggs. Just remember, if you are counting carbs to add in the carbohydrate count for any additional ingredients you include.

A delicious low carb Mexican breakfast awaits. You just have to make it! Today we are showing you how to make one of our faves, a keto breakfast quesadilla. This delicious keto Mexican breakfast recipe will be an instant fave!


  • 1 Keto Tortilla
  • 2 Cheese Slices (or 1/4 cup of shredded cheese)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Pancetta
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Green Salsa


In a bowl place your cracked eggs, mixing in the salsa, pancetta as well as the salt and pepper. Use a whisk to scramble eggs well.

Place 1 tablespoon of butter into your cooking pan, melting butter over medium heat. I prefer to use a skillet for this dish.

Once the butter is melted, place your uncooked scrambled egg mixture into the skillet to cook. Cook over medium heat until the eggs are cooked to how you like eggs cooked.

When the eggs are done, remove the eggs from the skillet and place on a plate.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in your skillet. Once melted, drop in your low carb tortilla.

Top your tortilla with the 2 slices of cheese. Let the cheese melt for around 15-30 seconds over medium heat.

Once the cheese has started to melt, place the keto quesadilla egg mixture on top of the tortilla in the skillet. I like to place to one side of the tortilla because next you...

Next, let's fold the tortilla in half. Ensure that both sides of the tortilla that now resembles a taco - is slightly browned on each side.

Remote your low carb breakfast quesadilla from the skillet and place on a plate. Top with your green salsa and enjoy!

Ways to Make Quesadilla

So here we have a conundrum. There are 2 ways to make quesadillas. If you are making a single quesadilla, you can simply now just fold the tortilla in the pan in half – cooking like you would cook a grilled cheese sandwich.

Another way to make a quesadilla is to add another tortilla on top of the one cooking in the pan.

You will want to top the egg mixture with the tortilla and when the bottom is browned, you can flip so that the top is now the bottom. But remember, to add in any calorie counts or carb counts if you do add in an additional tortilla to your breakfast quesadilla!

Top it with Salsa

Remove your breakfast quesadilla from the pan and place on a plate. If you desire, top it with salsa. I like green salsa but unfortunately green salsa tends to have a higher carb count so I limit my quantity.

Pancetta Alternatives

If you are not a fan of pancetta, no worries! Our goal here is just to make you a delicious low carb breakfast tortilla that YOU LIKE! Here are pancetta alternatives for you to try in your breakfast quesadilla.

  • bacon
  • sausage
  • ham

Really, any keto meat that you like you can add in. THIS IS FOR YOU, so you make this low carb dish how you like it!
