Egg Quesadilla / Tortilla Omelet Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 01:34 PM


This is a retry/adaption of what I was trying to do on Monday.

First, I diced up and sautéed (really just to heat) a bunch of leftover ham. I then took that off the stove and let the pan cool a bit. I then added two beaten eggs (with a splash of milk). Topped it with the ham then then some mozzarella. Finally, I put a tortilla on top and pressed down to try t get it to seal with the eggs.

I flipped it (carefully, in the air) and let the bottom cook for a bit. I used some more mozzarella and a bit of Adobo powder. I finally folded it.

It was good. I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't call it any great revelation in cooking but it was a nice change.

Revised and Updated Steps

This is a better list of steps:

On a mostly-cool (see updated recipe), well-greased pan over medium, add two eggs scrambled with a splash of water or milk

Quickly add desired toppings. Toppings can be added here or at a later step. Cheese should go later. I like meat at this step

Place large flour tortilla on top and press into the egg. The egg should still be liquid on top

Cook until the tortilla is well "glued" to the egg. Carefully slide a spatula under the eggs to ensure it is loose. Spray the tortilla with pam

Carefully flip. Tossing it works well but be careful. Reduce heat to low or medium-low

Add additional toppings to one side of the egg. Generally, just cheese

Cover and let melt. Then fold.
