Cheese, salami, spinach corn tortilla quesadilla

Now that’s a mouth full!   I made this last night and reheated it this morning when I got to work.  It’s basically:

  • 1/4 cup egg beaters
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 5 spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 ounce volpi salami
  • 1/2 ounce cheddar cheese 
  • two small corn tortillas (two for 100 calories)

I used a saute pan that was about the size of my tortillas.  After it set on one side, I flipped it.  Um, maybe I need work on that?

not the cleanest flip I've ever done!

not the cleanest flip I've ever done!

Then when that was done, I “Pam” fried it. 


Then I cut it with a pizza cutter and had it with 1/2 grapefruit (with my new grapefruit knife – thanks MIL!)


So my whole breakfast was:

  • 326 calories
  • 11 fat
  • 34 carbs
  • 21 protein
  • 4.4 fiber

Plan on doing a treadmill walk/run/incline – I’ll post it at lunch!

  1. Looks really good. I wouldn’t have thought to make a quesadilla out of eggs. I think that I am going to have to try this!

  2. What a wonderful combination of flavors and textures!

  3. Niiiiice quesadilla! Two thumbs up from me 🙂

    Oh and from one Arrested Development fan to another: they’re getting really close to making a movie of it! I, for one, am excited!

  4. What a sweet morning start!

  5. great idea on the quesadilla! I have been making egg wraps lately too w/ egg beaters & a slice of cheese and an ounce of whatever meat I have. It’s a filling way to eat – they always fill me up!

    I did AWESOME last night, the 1/2 bottle of wine is still there. Now I’m starting to make excuses though as to why I MUST go home and drink it. Doesn’t wine get old after a couple of days? Maybe it will expire before the weekend? hehe…I’m making excuses. I won’t drink it, I won’t drink it, I won’t drink it.

    Good idea on hiding the wine! Thanks for the encouragement to start this challenge!

  6. wow, lovely breakfast. beats my bowl of cereal this am 🙂

  7. Flipping is difficult. I can’t make an omelet specifically because my flipping skills are non-existent.

    This looks so tasty! I’ve got a whole pile of spinach that would love to be added to a dish like this.

  8. I like the sound of a breakfast quesadilla!
