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 squirt 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 of the tortilla 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.
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 tortilla cooking in the pan. You will want to top the egg mixture with the tortilla and when the bottom tortilla is browned, you can flip so that the top tortilla is now the bottom tortilla. 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.
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.
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!
