Ham, Egg, and Cheese Quesadillas


  • 8eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 6 (8 inch) whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Smithfield® Cubed Ham
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Scramble eggs with water, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until well blended. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook eggs, stirring frequently, until scrambled to desired consistency.


  • Step 2

    Spread 1 teaspoon of butter over 1 tortilla and place butter-side down in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle 1/3 cup cheese over entire tortilla. Add 1/2 cup scrambled egg and 1/3 cup Smithfield® cubed ham to one side. Cook 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Fold the plain cheese side over the filled side and flip the quesadilla. Cook an additional 2 minutes or until golden and toasted. Cut into 2 or 3 pieces.

  • Step 3

    Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 5 more quesadillas.

  • Cook's Note:

    To make a large batch in the oven: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter the outside of each tortilla and fill each with the same ingredients as listed above, starting and ending with cheese only on half. Fold each quesadilla in half and arrange on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes, flipping halfway through.
