Expert Tips

  • Save time by using purchased bacon pieces. Look for them in envelopes or bottles near the salad dressings in the grocery store. If you prefer, fry 2 or 3 bacon slices until crispy and drain them well.
  • Quesadillas may be made up to 4 hours ahead and grilled just before serving. Try grilling on the barbecue for added flavour!
