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