Ingredients for Egg and Cheese Quesadillas

You’ll find the full recipe and instructions on the recipe card below, but this is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need:

Tortilla: A low-carb, gluten-free, flavored or traditional tortilla.
Butter: Alternatively, you can use cooking spray for a lower-calorie option.
Ham: Sliced ​​deli ham, diced ham, or leftovers from Sunday ham work great.
Eggs: Soft scrambled eggs, be sure not to overcook to avoid dry eggs.
Cheese: You can use your favourites, but I use a combination of Swiss and cheddar.

How to make a ham and cheese quesadilla?

First, heat a pan over medium heat and add the butter. Put the tortilla in the pan and add the cheese, eggs, ham and salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes until it begins to brown, then fold over the other side of the tortilla. Cook for another 1-2 minutes (turn if necessary) and you’re done! Excellent ham and cheese quesadilla!

Can I use a different meat in a ham and cheese quesadilla?

Of course! As I mentioned earlier, quesadillas are versatile, so feel free to vary the ingredients you want. Replacing the ham with bacon or chorizo (or black beans for a vegetarian option) works surprisingly, but the world really is your oyster here.

Can I freeze these egg and cheese quesadillas?

Yes – quesadillas can be precooked and frozen, making them an ideal option for meal prep. Once your quesadilla is ready, allow it to cool completely before wrapping it tightly and placing it in the freezer. It is very important that you do not skip the cooling process. Wrapping a warm quesadilla locks in moisture and causes the food to become soggy when you reheat it.

How to reheat quesadillas

Reheat in a Pan: Quesadillas are best reheated in a skillet or in the oven to help them retain as much crispness as possible. To reheat using a skillet, first add a very thin layer of spray oil over medium heat and let it heat up before adding your quesadilla. Heat each side for a minute or so, or until the ingredients are hot and melted, to make sure the tortilla doesn’t burn.
Oven Reheat: To reheat in the oven, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Let your quesadilla sit for about 10 minutes – again, watch closely from start to finish.
Reheat in the Microwave: Reheat in 30-second increments until fully heated, turn after first minute of heating.
Reheat in Air Fryer: Preheat air fryer to 325 degrees for 3 minutes. Add the quesadilla and reheat for 3 minutes, flip and heat for another 2-3 minutes until warmed through.

Tips for Egg and Cheese Quesadillas

It can be said that making the perfect quesadilla is a work of art! Here are my top tips for perfectly crispy quesadillas:

Use Butter: You can cook the quesadilla in a pan lightly greased with spray oil, but the best flavor and texture is achieved when the pan is prepared with melted butter.
Don’t overcook the scrambled eggs – they’ll finish cooking inside the quesadilla and you don’t want them to dry out.
Be careful not to overfill. I know—it’s tempting—but quesadillas work best when they’re kept light and not overloaded with ingredients.
Be patient! Don’t fall into the trap of frying your quesadillas over high heat, as tortillas burn quite easily. Using a medium heat will help prevent this, while still ensuring your ingredients melt perfectly.
