A favorite hamburger turns into a quesadilla in these Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas that are sure to be a family favorite!

Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas | Taste and Tell

Sometimes when I sit down to compose a blog post, the words flow freely. Almost like I have too much to say. And other times, the words just are not there. No matter how long I sit and stare at the computer, nothing comes to me.

It’s quite the frustrating feeling. And, well, right now is one of those times. I have started writing about 10 different posts, only to go back and delete every single letter.

So I’m doing what I do best in these situations. I’m keeping my mouth shut. Mostly.

I’ll just tell you – if you are on the lookout for a great fast and easy weeknight dinner for the nights and weekends of holiday craziness ahead, I’ve got you covered. These Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas have all of the goodness of a cheeseburger, wrapped up in a tortilla and grilled to perfection. Seriously – keep this on on hand. You’ll thank me for it!

A favorite hamburger turns into a quesadilla in these Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas that are sure to be a family favorite!
Serves: 4 servings
  • ½ lb bacon, diced
  • 1½ lb ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 1½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • diced tomatoes
  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the diced bacon and cook until crisp. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Drain off all of the bacon grease except 1 tablespoon. Add the ground beef and cook until browned and cooked through. Add the bacon back into the beef, and then stir in the ketchup and mustard.
  2. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Put a layer of cheese on 2 of the tortillas. Add half of the meat mixture on top of each of the tortillas, followed by another layer of cheese. Top with the remaining tortillas. Grill until golden and until the cheese has melted, 5-10 minutes. Serve garnished with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes.

  1. I hear ya how sometimes the words just won’t flow when you’re trying to write a blog post! No worries – the photos and recipe speak for themselves here. Looks like a winner the whole fam will love 🙂

  2. Tieghan says:

    That is the worst, I know the feeling!

    But really, this quesadilla does all the talking! Yum, yum and YUM!

  3. Cooking is way easier than writing-and these cook! I love anything quesadilla!

  4. I’m very new at blogging and I already feel that pain, but your photos are speaking to me. This looks delicious!

    Seriously, I’ve got an abundance of tortillas in my house right now because we went to Cosco last weekend and I keep thinking up things to use them for. Not like it’s hard, but I like trying new things. I’m actually making Rachael’s Mexican Lasagna next Tuesday for our Mexican night…but I think these will have to make the list for the week after. These look excellent!

    Oh…speaking of Rachael…we made her Chipotle Turkey Chili with Apples and Cheddar last night for our Halloween Chili–if you haven’t made it yet, YOU’VE GOT TOO! It is so so good! I made it with only 1 lb of ground turkey…so Josh suggested (cause we like to try and make our meat stretch…budget ya know) adding frozen corn and beans to it. So I’m going to try that next, but I’m telling you…it is super good. All of our family that came over last night was oohing and aaahing over how good it smelled in my kitchen. Try it!!

  6. I can totally relate to those times when you just don’t know what to write. It’s so frustrating. I’m am loving these quesadillas! I want these for dinner tonight! They look delicious!

  7. Joanne says:

    I definitely have those days…and then I write about nothing. Or what feels to me like nothing but is maybe something? I don’t know. I like the honesty though!!

  8. Oh, so I’m not alone in the “I have nothing to say” department?! I’m a talker…I can talk your ears off, but as of late, I can’t write anything worthwhile on zee bloggy… BUT, good Lawwwwd, I want these quesadillas near me! They sound SO GOOD!!

  9. Oh la la! These look awesome–would be a big hit by all!

  10. Hold me tight. Holy gaw.

  11. Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Holy!! I think this just may be my new favorite quesadilla recipe 🙂 yum!!

  12. Chels R. says:
