Bacon cheeseburgers have always been one of my favorites; it’s a classic. I mean seriously, who doesn’t enjoy a big juicy bacon cheeseburger with grease dripping down to your elbows? I wanted to find a way to put all these flavors into one mouthwatering appetizer, and that is exactly what I did!
Another reason why I love these bacon cheeseburger quesadillas, is that after cooked, they can be stored in the freezer. Simply cook the quessadillas by following my recipe below. Once they have cooled, place in a freezer bag and store in the freezer. Next time the kiddos or husband gets hungry just pull a few out, place on a microwave safe plate, and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Of course, that’s if they don’t disappear before you get the chance to put them in the freezer… Maybe you’d better make a double batch? 😉
And the fun doesn’t have to stop here. Just because I didn’t load mine up, doesn’t mean you can’t. Don’t be afraid to pile in some of your favorite bacon cheeseburger toppings such as, sauteed green peppers and onions, mushrooms, etc. I would even go as far as adding some french fried onions.
Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadilla’s
1 pound ground beef (cooked and drained)
1/2 pound of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
1 (8oz or 2 cup) bag shredded cheddar cheese or 20 Tbsp. ( I used the finely shredded)
1 bag of 10 ( 8 in. )flour tortilla’s
1 cup mayo
2-3 tsp. Sriracha
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
1.) Divide cooked ground beef into 10 even piles. I have found that the easiest way to do this is to split the ground beef in half. From there, eyeball it, to get 5 even piles from each half; do the same with the bacon.
2.) Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
3.) On a clean work space, lay a tortilla down flat. On half the tortilla, sprinkle on one pile of cooked ground beef and cooked bacon. Then sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. of shredded cheddar cheese.
4.) Fold the un-filled half of the tortilla over the filled part of the tortilla and give it a little press with your hands.
5.) Repeat steps 1-4 with the other 9 tortillas; making a total of 10 bacon cheeseburger quesadilla’s
6.) Line all the quesadilla’s on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spray the tops of the quesadilla’s with a little cooking spray.
7.) Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes flip and bake an additional 5 minutes.
8.) Cut each quesadilla into 2-3 triangles
9.) You can either serve these up now, or you can let them cool, put them in freezer bags, and freeze for an easy go to snack later.
* These are great served with ranch, ketchup, or Sriracha Mayo ( recipe below).
1 cup of mayo
2-3 tsp. Sriracha sauce
Put the mayo and Sriracha in a bowl and mix well till pinkish in color.
* Sriracha mayo is good on so many things! You can spread it on a hamburg, or sandwich, or use it as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers, french fries, onion rings, etc..
