Better Than The Freezer Aisle: Copycat SmartOnes Breakfast Quesadilla

The last thing I want to worry about as I am running out the door with breakfast in hand, is if I am breaking my eating habits with my first meal.  Luckily these copycat Breakfast Quesadillas are only WW+5 and super delicious.  And did I mention how amazingly simple they are to make?  I whipped out a double batch in less than a 1/2 hour.  Even if you aren’t counting points or calories, these are a great breakfast option for the entire family!

  1. We did these a little while back…and I was immediately wishing I made way more! Thanks to the seemingly bottomless stomachs in our house they were gone in a QUARTER of the time I had thought they would last! LOL, thanks for the reminder, will have to add this to the to-do list again this week:)

    Can I use real egg and still freeze? Thanks

  3. Stef says:

    What brand tortillas do you use? Or what should I look for in tortillas to keep the recipe within the WW points? Can’t wait to try. Thanks

      Stef – I typically use the store brand tortillas. I would suggest reading labels on the tortillas that are at your local grocery store, and choose the one that will fit your dietary needs.
