Something for lunch – quesadillas


Post Tags

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.
