I’m a huge fan of meal prep and sometimes thinking of breakfast ideas can be difficult. Meal prep can be redundant so it’s good to switch it up frequently. These simple breakfast quesadillas are the ultimate because you can stuff them with anything you desire.

It only takes 20 minutes to assemble these quesadillas. I stuffed mine with scrambled eggs, green peppers, red onion, and tomatoes. I topped with avocado (not pictured). But the stuff options are endless – you can add meats, more cheeses, more veggies, etc.

*Tip: if you use Burrito sized quesadillas, you can fit more ingredient and it will hold better*
