Servings 16 quesadilla wedges


  • 9 large eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 8 10-in flour tortillas
  • 1-1/3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil for frying


  • In a lightly greased medium saucepan, whisk eggs, salt, pepper, and parsley until combined. Cook eggs over medium heat, stirring constantly until set. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
  • Divide scrambled eggs over 4 tortillas. Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/3 cup cheese. Place remaining tortillas over cheese.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until shimmery. Place 1 filled quesadilla in oil. Fry on one side 1 minute, then flip to the other side and cook for an additional 1 minute, or until cheese is melted. Transfer quesadilla to paper towels to drain. Cut into fourths and keep warm until ready to serve. Repeat with remaining 3 quesadillas.
