Salmon Breakfast Quesadillas

Hi Friends!

Just popping in to share one of my new fav breakfasts with you:

Salmon Breakfast Quesadillas

We’re gonna keep this short and sweet because I feel like I have so much to do to get things organized before I start my next internship rotation on Monday! Luckily I made some good progress yesterday and hopefully today can be just as productive. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Ok, so let’s talk about these dillas. They’re the perfect way to use up leftover salmon. We try to eat salmon several times a month around her and usually have a piece or two leftover, so I love to make these on the weekend. They’re perfect for after crossfit! Plus, they reheat well so I always try to make an extra one so that hubby can have it for breakfast on Monday.

Like most quesadillas, these are totally customizable! I tend to just use whatever I have in the fridge.

Here’s my latest version:
