    Perfect. Don't know why I never thought of this. haha We put everything in tortillas! The kids eat quesadilla's often for dinner...never thought to do it for breakfast! Of course, anyone can add whatever they want between two tortillas. Awesome! Thanks for posting this and giving me the idea!

    I used reduced fat Colby Jack cheese instead of fontina. Really good!

    Love, love loved this recipe! So easy and delicious. It will be fun to switch up the cheese and see what combinations we can come up with!

    These are great. I have also made them into burritos and tossed em in the freezer to heat in microwave anytime.

    This is really good, but you can use any type cheese you prefer. And for the other comment on how to grate Fontina cheese. Put it in the freezer for a little while and you can use a food prosessor or hand grate it must easier.

    A tip on how to grate the fontina would have been nice -- it is a very soft cheese & not easily grated!!!
