Tailgate Recipe: Egg Salad and Cheese Quesadillas

What to do with all of those leftover dyed Easter eggs in your fridge? How about trying out a new egg-cellent recipe. :)

We found this interesting (and yummy) sounding recipe from website Kalyn's Kitchen. Might not exactly work for a tailgate, but these would be delicious for a game viewing party at home.

**And just a friendly reminder, eggs that have been unrefrigerated for more than 2 hours are probably not be safe to eat. However, hard-boiled eggs will keep safely in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Egg Salad and Cheese Quesadillas
(makes 4 quesadillas)

4 hard boiled eggs
4 small size flour tortillas ( can substitute with whole wheat or low carb
tortillas if desired)
olive oil or non-stick spray for spraying tortillas and pan
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 tblsp mayo or light mayo
1 1/2 tblsp finely chopped green onion
1/2 tsp. Spike Seasoning (optional, or use other seasonings of your choice)
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup finely grated cheese (suggestion: the grocery store's prepackaged Mexican blend of four cheeses)

How to Prepare
Peel and cut hard boiled eggs into pieces about 1/2 inch. Mix eggs with Dijon, mayonnaise, chopped green onion, and Spike seasoning. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spray or brush olive oil on frying pan and on bottom side of tortillas. Spread egg salad mixture on half of each tortilla, not going clear to the edge so it doesn't fall out while quesadillas are cooking. Top egg mixture with 1 tblsp grated cheese, then fold the tortilla to make a half-moon shaped quesadilla.

Heat frying pan over medium-high heat, then cook quesadillas about 3-4 minutes per side, or until cheese is melted and they are slightly browned. Serve hot, with salsa on the side if desired.
