  • 2 small flour tortillas
  • Sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • 1 egg
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
  • 1/4 avocado sliced
  • Green onion sliced
  • Tomatoes diced
  • Fresh cilantro leaves


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Place the cheese evenly on one tortilla then drizzle with your favorite hot sauce.
  • Top with the remaining tortilla and place into the hot skillet.
  • Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes, before flipping over and cooking the other side for 2 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the skillet and place on a cutting board. Cut into four wedges and place on a plate.
  • Once the quesadilla is cooking on the second side, heat a small skillet that is coated with cooking spray over medium heat.
  • Crack the egg into the pan and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
  • Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add a tablespoon of water to the pan and cover with a lid.
  • Cook for about 1 minute or until the yolk is clouded over. Do not overcook or the yolk will be hard.
  • Serve the steamed egg on top of the quesadilla then top with avocado slices, green onion, diced tomato, and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
