I had something like this at a restaurant last night and had to try duplicating it at home. This potato quesadilla reminds me of a pierogi. I think this recipe can be played up with just about anything you like with potatoes. This can be a super-fast meal if you use the heat and serve bacon and premade mashed potatoes.
