|1 tortilla (6", 8" or 10" diameter. your preference)||flour tortilla||$0.08|
|1/4 cup||creamed spinach||$0.28|
|2 Tbsp||shredded cheddar cheese||$0.12|
STEP 1: In a small skillet, fry the egg. I really like runny yolks, especially in this quesadilla because of the way the yolk mixes with the creamed spinach and melted cheese. To accomplish this, make sure your skillet is nice and hot before adding the egg. Fry it on one side until the whites are mostly set and the yolk is still runny. Briefly flip the egg over and fry for 30 seconds or so. This will finish setting the top of the whites and create a skin on top of the yolk leaving the inside still runny! YUM!
STEP 2: Spread the creamed spinach (it's okay if it's cold from the fridge) over one side of the tortilla. Sprinkle the 2 Tbsp of cheddar cheese over the creamed spinach. Place the cooked egg on top of both and fold the other side of the tortilla over top of the fillings.
STEP 3: Place the folded tortilla in the hot skillet that you used for frying the egg (keep the heat on). Cook the quesadilla on each side until it is golden brown and crsipy. Serve immdiately!
Woops! I couldn't help eating some while taking the pictures...
NOTE: Even if you can't find the incredibly inexpensive 20 pack of tortillas like I did, this dish is super inexpensive. Another variation that I made was to spoon a couple dollops of homemade marinara in there with the rest of the fillings. The tomato flavor mixes wonderfully with the creamy spinach, egg and cheese. You could even use the marinara as a dip instead of salsa like regular quesadillas come with. I love quesadillas!
