Hashbrown Breakfast Quesadilla

This week I've tried reeeally hard to not eat like an animal.  Yesterday night I had had enough.  I wanted breakfast.  Eggs, cheese, scallions, hashbrowns pleaseeeeee.  No veggies.  Oh yeah and I also wanted a quesadillerrrr.  Let's combine them and call it dinner.  Or "dinner".  Whatever.

One time on Cooking Channel (aka the food porn channel) someone made a breakfast sandwich, but they put the hashbrowns INSIDE the sandwich. Oh ok!!! 

You won't regret it.

What you will need for one:

- 1 small potato, shredded
- 3 eggs, scrambled
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 1 tortilla shell
- 2-3 small handfuls of shredded cheddar jack cheese
- Olive oil

Shred the potato using a cheese grater.  Drizzle olive oil on a nonstick pan and allow to heat for several minutes.  Add the potato and season with salt and pepper.  Spread the potato evenly in the pan and cook until browned.  Flip the potato to brown the other side.  Set aside in a bowl, covered.

In the same pan, add a bit more olive oil and toss in the eggs.  Season with salt and pepper and add the scallions.  Scramble the eggs to your desired firmness, then set aside.

In a larger nonstick pan, heat the tortilla shell over medium heat and add some cheese.  When the cheese starts to melt, add the hashbrowns, eggs, and more cheese to one side of the shell.  Flip the shell in half and let the quesadilla cook for another minute.  

Serve and enjoyyyyy!!!

See what I mean?  Food porn o'clock ☺️
