Serve breakfast for dinner or upgrade your weekend morning ritual with these family-pleasing quesadillas loaded with egg, cheese and turkey bacon. To make this a simple dish with easy clean up, use the same skillet to cook each component of the recipe. Recoating the skillet with cooking spray between each quesadilla will help turn the tortillas golden brown and crisp. For a spicier flavor, serve with hot salsa and, although the sodium might slightly increase, try southwestern seasoned liquid egg substitute in the place of the plain variety. Pair with a side salad or bowl of mixed fresh fruit to complete the meal.
