Quesadilla Lunches with An Easy Kid Friendly Recipe

It's back to the real world after Halloween and a truly fun filled weekend with family and friends! Putting away the treats, it is time for something not so sweet but still very tasty indeed. We love having quesadillas for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner or anytime of the day. They are quick to make and always great. Sometimes we have them as an appetizer, other times as a main dish, or a side. We have also made them for parties and late night after movie snacks.

The most important part of any quesadilla is the filling, of course, and that is easy to customize to individual tastes. Do you have a special or favorite filling for your quesadillas? Ham and cheese are Nikolai's favorite. He doesn't mind eating them cold or warm for his school lunch, and they are so easy to pack.

Quesadilla Lunches with An Easy Kid Friendly Recipe

I'll share with you our easy recipe and directions. Feel free to substitute the meat or cheese to your liking. You can also use whole wheat tortilla or any other kind that you prefer.

  • 4 Small Flour Tortilla
  • 2 slices of nitrate free cooked Ham
  • 2 Slices of Colby cheese
  1. Heat a skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place a tortilla in the skillet, add ham and cheese and then top with another tortilla. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining tortilla.
  4. Remove from heat, let cool for a couple of minutes, cut the quesadilla into four wedges and serve. ( I let it cool a couple extra minutes before packing them into his lunchbox).
  5. Enjoy! ( or, take to school or work, THEN enjoy!)
Here are a couple of quesadilla lunches. They are mostly similar lunches, enjoyed on different days. Packed in his Planetbox.
