The Muppet Show Inspired KERMIT Breakfast Quesadilla

Celebrate the return of The Muppets with this Egg and bacon quesadilla
The Muppet show is a family favorite of ours and has been since I was young and watched “Muppet Babies”.  You watched that right?? “Muppet Babies, they’ll make your dreams come true…”

The Muppet show is starting again though I have heard it is a little racier this time.  It is more about the background life of The Muppets with an office feel.  If you are conservative like me, I would recommend watching it without kids before you watch it with your kids, so you can be sure it is appropriate for them.
I thought it would be fun to have a Muppet family Saturday morning and watch some old episodes of The Muppet Show with my kids!  This was a perfect time to have some fun with breakfast to go with it!

The Muppet Show Inspired Kermit Breakfast Quesadilla

What You’ll Need:- 1 Spinach Tortilla (burrito size)

– 1 Corn Tortilla (taco size)
– 2 Eggs

– 1 tbs shredded cheddar cheese
– 2 Slices Bacon (I used Hormel pre-cooked)
– Canned Black Beans

– Red Bell Pepper

Recipe & Assembly:

– Place one egg into a pot of water and bring to a boil.
– Once the water is boiling, cook for 12 minutes
– Peel your boiled egg and slice in half lengthwise. These will become your frog eyes.
– To shape Kermit’s eyes I used a Wilton “Halloween Cauldron” cookie cutter but you can freehand as well.
– Fold your spinach tortilla in half.
How to make the muppets show inspired Kermit breakfast quesadilla!
– With a sharp knife, cut out Kermit’s face. I used the Wilton “Halloween Candy Corn” cookie cutter as a guide.
– Using the same cookie cutter and knife cut three sections of bacon to form Kermit’s triangular mouth.
– Crumble the remaining bacon.
– Scramble your second egg with the crumbled bacon and cheese.
How to layer your Muppets inspired Kermit breakfast quesadilla
– Place your scrambled egg on top of one-half of your spinach tortilla and top with the other half.
– Your finished tortilla should then go on your serving plate.
– Cut Kermit’s collar from the corn tortilla and place it under the quesadilla chin.
– Place the mouth and eyes on next.
– Cut a small piece of red bell pepper for the tongue.
– Kermit’s pupils are one canned black bean cut in half lengthwise with two pieces of bean skins on either side.
You can use the rest of the ingredients for fajita, burrito or taco night!
