What You Need

  • 1 pkg (13.23 ounces/375g) Johnsonville Original Recipe Breakfast Sausages
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 scrambled eggs
  • 6-8 flour tortillas
  • 1 pkg pre-shredded tex-mex cheese
  • 1/2 each red, green, and yellow bell pepper (finely diced)
  • 1 small red onion (finely diced)
  • chopped cilantro, chopped tomato, and lime wedges for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan over med-high heat. Cook sausage according to package directions. Once cooked, transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and then slice up one cooled.

  2. Meanwhile, mix together eggs in a small bowl. Add to pan, cooking 2-3 minutes until scrambled. Remove from heat and transfer to a small bowl.

  3. Meanwhile, dice up peppers and onion until fine. Top half of each tortilla with a bit of cheese, then add sliced sausages, a bit of egg and veggies. Top with more cheese, then fold over. Cook quesadillas two at a time in a large frying pan over med-low heat for about 5-7 minutes per side or until cheese is melted.

  4. Cut each quesadilla in half and serve. They also freeze well when placed between wax paper and stored in a large resealable plastic bag. Remove one at a time and microwave for a few minutes to serve, or reheat in the oven for a crispier tortilla.
