Any good mum knows how to multitask and who doesn’t love an activity children of all ages can take part in, that also doubles as lunch?
Step forward quesadillas, a tasty and filling meal that children will enjoy making and eating.
All you need is a pack of tortilla wraps, a pile of grated cheddar cheese and your choice of fillings – ham cut into small bite-sized bits; diced up pepper, tomatoes or mushrooms. Perhaps thinly spread pesto, some spring onions or finely diced chilli for a bit of a kick.
We put all the filings in little bowls on the table so little ones can help themselves. Get your children to sprinkle a good handful of grated cheese on one half of a wrap. Add the rest of their choice of topping (not too much though otherwise it won’t cook very well), fold the top over and get an adult to dry fry on a medium heat in a large frying pan for a few minutes, flipping half way through to ensure both sides are golden brown. Cut with scissors into triangles and serve with salad or a soured cream dip.
They’re lovely served hot – although allow the melted cheese to cool before little ones take a bite. They’re also great cold and make a nice alternative to sandwiches for a picnic or packed lunch. You can make them them the night before.
These are a regular lunch-time dish in our house, especially when we have friends here. Great fun to make and delicious too.
