Mushroom Egg Quesadilla

The combination of Mushroom with Japaleno and Egg is full proof, and you can definitely add some dried herbs or spices too. I kept it very simple.

If you don’t eat egg, you can discard that and add a variety of cheese to the tortilla to being it together.

Ingredients for Mushroom Egg Quesadilla

Cremini Mushrooms – I often go for either Cremini Mushroom or White Button Mushroom, but you can definitely make it more exotic with different variety of earthy mushrooms.

Jalapeño – Discard the seeds if you don’t like the heat from Jalapeño. I kept it intact, as these Jalapeños were not that spicy anyway.

Eggs – I was making a filling Quesadilla so went for 2 eggs per Quesadilla

Cheese – I used a mix of shredded Cheddar cheese and Mozzarella cheese.

Butter – I used butter, but if you want to skip butter, oil is fine too.

Can you make this in advance ?

This quick Quesadilla doesn’t need a lot of prep work. I pretty much make it instantly.

Having said that, you can definitely stir fry the mushroom and jalapeño in advance. You can make in bulk and store as a meal prep.

It is just the browning of the mushroom that does take time and if you are making for a big group, then stir frying the mushroom and jalapeño in advance will definitely help a lot!

Key Steps to brown Mushroom

The most important step when cooking is mushroom is to not wash it with water. Instead, take a clean cloth or kitchen towel and rub the dirt off the mushroom.

You want to keep the mushroom dry so when you stir fry in hot oil/butter or ghee it will slowly caramelize and turn golden brown.

Another important point is to avoid adding salt when you brown the mushroom. Salt will release moisture from the vegetable and that will turn the mushroom soggy. It will soften and get cooked, but you will not get the brown shade.

Quesadilla tastes best when prepared fresh and enjoyed warm. I like to wash it down with a glass of juice. The fluffy egg, with the meaty mushroom and spicy jalapeño, is such a great combo. You absolutely must try.
