Cheesy Herb & Chive Breakfast Quesidillas

I made these little quesidillas for breakfast on Easter Sunday. I love trying something new for breakfast on the weekends. I had some fresh herbs on hand from our dinner the previous night and some whole wheat tortillas I needed to use up. Personally, the fontina cheese is my favorite part. You can use any kind of cheese you'd like but I'm in love with fontina.

Love your use of fontina in the Quesidillas. It's one of my favorite cheeses when the cheese needs to be melted. Lovely pictures too, I'm sure they tasted really good!
