There are few foods in my household that all 6 of us can agree on loving -- and bacon is certainly one of them! Whether you're looking for a great appetizer to bring to your March Madness watching parties, or just a fun snack or quick and tasty dinner idea, I know you're going to love these Farmland® Bacon and Cheddar Quesadillas.
What sets Farmland® bacon apart and makes it delicious, is that it's slow smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor. For decades, Farmland® has taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique – a difference you’ll taste in every delicious bite. Recently, I discovered that adding Farmland® Bacon to one of our favorite snacks and appetizers - quesadillas - was an instant hit!
I started off with the Farmland® classic cut fully cooked bacon because when you're hosting a crowd for a game day get together, it's nice to have some time savers in the kitchen. But what's even better is that even though your prep time may be cut, the flavor in these delicious strips of bacon, is not! So tasty after just a few seconds in the microwave!
The other ingredients you'll need for this tasty appetizer are flour tortillas (my family prefers my homemade flour tortillas), and some freshly shredded cheddar cheese. Doesn't all of this yumminess look amazing?!!
Now for the fun part! Preheat your griddle or skillet to about 300 - 325 degrees and let the tortilla warm up just a little bit on one side. Then, I like to flip it so that the warmest side is facing up. I then top it with the Farmland® Bacon crumbles and the shredded cheddar cheese. Because I'm placing it on the warm side of the tortilla, it tends to melt a little quicker and easier. Then, just flip up the other side of the tortilla on top of the bacon and cheddar filling you just added and let it continue to melt. After about 20-30 seconds, you can flip the entire tortilla over to toast a little bit on the other side and continue melting.
The result is pure goodness! Once the Farmland® Bacon and Cheddar Quesadillas are done, simply cut in half and pile onto a plate. You can serve these at your game day (or any day) party with salsa, sour cream, or even guacamole for an exciting party spread.
