Steak & mashed potato quesadillas

Makes 2 quesadillas

I love steak and mashed why not throw them together in a quesadilla?


  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch circles
  • Olive oil
  • Four 8-inch flour tortillas
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups (about 10 ounces)
  • leftover cooked steak, very thinly sliced


  1. Preheat grill to medium
  2. Lightly oil onion slices, season with salt & pepper and put on grill
  3. Cook until they soften, turning once and have good grill marks, remove and chop roughly - then turn grill down to low
  4. On top of 2 of the tortillas put the following - 1/4 of the cheese, 1/2 the potatoes, 1/2 the steak, 1/2 the onions, the rest of the cheese and the remaining tortilla
  5. Carefully put quesadillas on the grill and cook until cheese begins to melt and grill marks develop - flip over
  6. Grill second side until the insides are warm and the tortillas are crispy
  7. Remove, cut into wedges and serve

"Just Grill This"
