Mashed Potato Quesadilla

Rated as 4.26 out of 5 Stars

"I had something like this at a restaurant last night and I had to try to duplicate it at home! It reminds me of a perogies! I think that this recipe can really 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!"

  1. Stir together the mashed potatoes, bacon, and green onions. Spread the mashed potato mixture onto one side of half of the tortillas, spreading to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the mashed potatoes and top with the remaining tortillas. Lightly butter each side of the quesadillas.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Place a quesadilla into the preheated pan, and cook until golden brown and crispy, then turn over, and continue cooking on the other side until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining quesadillas. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

I am so sorry to say this, (and it could just be the cooker, me). I don't know what I did wrong as I followed the recipe to a tee. My Hubby said he'd never try it again, and he'd eat fried card...

We found some great ways to cut calories on these and make them a tad more healthy. About half the recipe makes enough for 5 people. Also we used turkey bacon instead of regular, omitted the b...
