Stuffed Egg Quesadilla – Crispy on the Outside with a Melty Stuffing Inside
It’s ‘Friday’….YaYYYY – Everything looks so nice and lighter today.
Just the feel of the weekend approaching makes me want to do a happy dance and I’m sure a lot of you are already thinking about weekend plans.
With the weather being in-between 70’s-80’s (Fahrenheit), it’s perfect for a beach or a swim apart from the other weekend activities like camps/hikes/meet-ups and shopping
(How can I forget shopping …..with so many spring sale event’s around)
Now, getting back to our weekend topic, I’m thinking brunch, something real quick but filling for everyone at home.
Also something that can be easily packed and tastes delicious eaten cold (for outdoor activities).
So, I’m making “Stuffed Egg Quesadilla” or “Anda Paratha” (How we call it in India) with “Onion Yogurt Dip”.
Who doesn’t love a mixture of eggs (free range-cage free off-course), veggies/meat with cheese stuffed in a tortilla wrap (Quesadilla)…
it’s ooey-gooey yum along with chilled onion yogurt dip (needs 2 minutes to prepare) and choice of beverage. Perfect weekend brunch or anytime meal.
This combination is easy to grab-n-go but also keeps the tummy filled for longer.
It’s a great way to make kids’s eat vegetables without even telling them.
1. You can use any tortilla (regular or flavored)
2. If your kid doesn’t like seeing vegetables, you can use shredded veggies.
3. You can increase or decrease the amount of egg, veggies, cheese as per taste
4. You can use leftover veggies/meat (shred or chop to make it tiny)
5. You can use a homemade/fresh tortilla for this as well
NOTE: I’m using very basic veggies as stuffing, but you may use any kind of stuffing as per choice.
