These breakfast quesadillas are one such dish that you can customize to suit your family's appetite. Then gather around the table and enjoy a lazy breakfast together!

These breakfast quesadillas can be served with your choice of condiments. I love adding a little hot sauce and ketchup on the side for dipping. If you wanted to customize the quesadillas, you could substitute bacon or ham for the sausage. Saute onion and peppers, or toss in tomatoes to add a little extra flavor to the quesadillas. Enjoy these as a delicious brunch option, or serve them for lunch or dinner.
