Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas

There are a couple of meals I make more often, but in general you won’t see a repeat meal around here for at least a few months.  I love variety when it comes to food!  I also love almost all food, and there are just not enough meals in the day sometimes to enjoy it all. haha!

I quickly realized I had not made quesadillas for waaaaaaay too long (if I’m remembering correctly, it’s been close to 2 years now).  Abby was almost beside herself with joy when these appeared for supper.  I don’t think this stopped the entire meal, “Mama, I am really loving these!  These are my favorite food.  These are just my favorite.  I am really liking these ‘dillas!  I’m just scarfing them and eating more, more, more!! etc.”  If you ask her right now what her favorite food is, it will definitely be ”dillas.”  She wasn’t the only one who enjoyed these.  They were pretty great!  Thanks to, Mantitlement, for the idea!

Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillasbacon-cheeseburger-quesadillas

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 strips of turkey bacon
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • shredded cheddar cheese

Brown beef in olive oil until done.  Add in worcestershire, ketchup, cream cheese, and seasonings until well blended.  Spoon into a separate dish and set aside.

Use the same pan to cook the bacon strips until done.  Remove to a plate and crumble when cool enough.

Carefully use a napkin to wipe out the frying pan.  Put it back on the heat, melt some butter in it and set one tortilla in.  Spoon about a fourth of the meat and bacon on top.  Sprinkle with as much cheese as you like and cover with a second tortilla.  Press down with a plate.  Cook for about a minute and check.  If the bottom is done, flip it over and cook for another minute or so.  When done, set on a plate and start the next one.

One of the things I loved most about this recipe was the cream cheese in the filling.  It not only made them taste crazy delicious, but it helped the filling all hold together through the flip.  I have never made quesadillas that were so easy to flip!  I had very little filling spill out and it made me want to make this recipe again soon!  Hopefully it won’t be 2 years before I make these again.  They deserve to be eaten more often. 🙂
