  • Then add the entire 16oz carton of egg whites and scramble until eggs are cooked and the majority of the liquid is gone. Remove from heat.
  • Place 1x corn tortilla in each of the 6 pieces of tin foil. Using a slotted spoon to remove excess liquid, place the veggie and egg mixture evenly on top of the 6 tortillas.
  • Evenly distribute the diced turkey bacon slices on top of the 6 egg tortillas.
  • Top each tortilla with 1/4 cup of shredded Mexican cheese.
  • Sprinkle with salt + pepper to your liking.

  • Place a second tortilla on top of all 6 of the quesadillas. Spray the top tortilla with cooking spray to avoid the edges from hardening while cooking
  • Fold the tin foil around the quesadilla and slightly press to flatten. Place in the oven for 10 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Allow to cool slightly and enjoy! Top with some hot sauce if you like it spicy!

Tips:

  • Best reheated in the tin foil in a toaster/oven.
  • For a less "mushy" quesadilla, cook the egg mixture ahead of time. Keep all of the ingredients separate until you are ready to build the quesadilla and then eat right away!
  • You can mix and match any vegetables that you enjoy to change up the taste of your quesadilla!
