Right now a lot of people are visiting my post about making perfect hard-boiled eggs, so I can tell left-over hard-boiled eggs are going to be on the menu after Easter. So for this week’s Friday Favorites pick I’m reminding you about this fun recipe for Egg Quesadillas made with hard-boiled eggs!

I’ve made a lot of quesadillas with different fillings, but this idea for breakfast quesadillas that was sent to me by a reader named Laura might be the most unique quesadilla recipe I’ve seen, and they were delicious! And if you use low-carb tortillas, this will be perfect for a low-carb meal!

What ingredients do you need for this recipe?

(This is only a list of ingredients; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)

Which low-carb tortillas would I use for the egg quesadillas?

I would use La Banderita Low-Carb Tortillas (affiliate link) or Mission Carb Balance Low-Carb Tortillas to make the egg quesadillas a low-carb breakfast. (You could also eat the tasty egg salad in lettuce wraps if you wanted it to be Keto or gluten-free.)

How many carbs are in Hard-Boiled Egg Quesadillas?

The Egg Quesadillas made with hard-boiled eggs have about 11.5 net carbs in a whole quesadilla. And although I calculated the nutritional information based on a whole quesadilla made with two tortillas, half of one of these would probably be enough for me.

How to make Hard-Boiled Egg Quesadillas:

(This is only a summary of the steps for the recipe; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)

  1. Start by chopping perfectly boiled eggs into pieces about 1/2 inch. You’ll need about two eggs for each quesadilla you’re planning to make.
  2. You’ll also need grated cheese, mayo-mustard mixture, and sliced green onions. 
  3. Mix 1/4 cup grated cheese, mayo, mustard, green onions, Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), salt, and pepper into the eggs.
  4. It’s a personal preference, but I like to mix the egg salad mixture gently, so that it’s still fairly chunky when you’re ready to spread this into the tortillas.
  5. These are the low-carb tortillas I used, and this brand now has only 4 net carbs per tortilla.
  6. Spread some butter or spray olive oil on the bottom tortilla.
  7. Then put tortilla into a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and sprinkle with a little cheese. (The cheese above and below the egg salad mixture helps it stick together.)
  8. Then put one-half of the egg salad mixture on the tortilla and spread around, not going clear to the edge.
  9. Sprinkle the egg-salad mixture with a little more cheese. (Somehow I didn’t get a photo of that, oops!)
  10. Spread butter or spray the second tortilla and lay it on the top.
  11. Cook over medium heat until the bottom is nicely browned, about 5 minutes.
  12. Turn over carefully and cook about 5 minutes on the second side.
  13. Cut each quesadilla in half and serve hot.
  14. This is great with salsa and sour cream to dip into at the table!

Whenever you have leftover hard-boiled eggs, make Hard-Boiled Egg Quesadillas for an easy and tasty breakfast that uses hard-boiled eggs!


  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 4 Mission Carb Balance Tortillas or La Banderita low-carb tortillas
  • 1 T butter for spreading on tortillas
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 T mayo
  • 2 T finely chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tsp. Spike Seasoning (see notes)
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup finely grated cheese, divided (see notes)


  1. Follow instructions for making perfect hard-boiled eggs. Let eggs cool enough to handle, then peel and cut into pieces about 1/2 inch and put in a bowl.
  2. Mix the Dijon and mayo, slice green onions, and measure 3/4 cup grated cheese.
  3. Then mix the mayo mixture, green onions, 1/4 cup grated cheese, and Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) into the eggs and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread butter or spray olive oil on bottom side of two tortillas.
  5. Put one tortilla into a non-stick pan and turn heat to medium.
  6. Sprinkle tortilla with a 2 T of the cheese, then spread egg salad mixture over the cheese not going clear to the edge of the tortilla so it doesn’t fall out while quesadillas are cooking.
  7. Top egg mixture with 2 T more grated cheese, then put a second tortilla that’s spread on top with butter or sprayed with oil over the cheese.
  8. Cook quesadillas about 5 minutes per side, or until cheese is melted and they are slightly browned. (I’d lift up the edge and check after a few minutes.)
  9. Cut quesadillas in half and serve hot, with salsa and sour cream on the side if desired.
  10. Half of one of these quesadillas might be a full serving for some people.


I love Spike Seasoning, but use any all-purpose seasoning you have. I used a Mexican Cheese Blend from Costco for this recipe.
