Now place the second flour tortilla on top of the cheese to make sandwich of sorts. Place on heated quesadilla maker and follow direction Рit only takes 3-5  minutes to warm the ingredients, melt the cheese, and get a nice crispy quesadilla.

Optional: If you want a nice golden brown on your quesadillas you may want to butter your pan or spray with a Pam. This  helps it brown and have the nice crispy exterior.

Pepperoni Quesadillas

We use a quesadilla maker we bought for 90% off at Kohls, but you can easily use a griddle which not only works perfectly, but has the added bonus of being able to do 2-3 quesadillas at a time! That is a real time saver for those of us with big families! The only real downside is you have to flip your quesadilla half way through to brown both sides. We cooked ours 3-5 minutes each side.

Lunch Ideas for Kids

Cut the quesadilla on a cutting board or box using a pizza slicer into 6 slices. You can start eating the quesadillas while they are hot by giving a slice or two per person, or wait and have them all together so your toddler and preschoolers lunch will be nice and cool when they eat.
