Egg and Corn Quesadilla Recipe

For a deliciously different breakfast or brunch, try this excellent quesadilla. It's also great for a light lunch or supper. Corn is a natural in Southwestern cooking and a tasty addition to this zippy egg dish. -Stacy Joura, Stoneboro, Pennsylvania

"For some reason the stars are not showing up for me to give a rating, but it definitely deserves 5. This is a great dish, we have made it many times and it has become a favorite among the extended family as well. We have never actually used the salsa in it, but it would be good with or without. The only thing I would add to the recipe is that it does take a bit longer to bake than 10 minutes, but then we like ours a little crispy. Probably more like 25 min."
