Easy Sausage Egg & Cheese Breakfast Quesadilla

“This is a fairly easy and tasty recipe. To save time I cook the breakfast sausage in advance and freeze 1/2 cup portions in small baggies and just take one out the night before making. Feel free to add or omit anything you like but keep in mind the more items inside the heavier it is and not as easy to flip in the frying pan. I like it just the way it is but you might like to serve with hot sauce or salsa. Cook & prep times are approximate. Hope you enjoy!”
