Treat yourself to my buttery crisp Cheesy Mediterranean Bacon Quesadilla this week.  You’ll be glad you did 🙂

Is there anything better than a hot off the skillet, flavor packed, cheesy and buttery crisp quesadilla?  I have fond memories as a kid enjoying my mom’s quesadillas and this recipe is one of my favorite ones yet! It’s always a pleasure teaming up with Land O’ Lakes to bring you a new buttery recipe.  This one does not disappoint and takes just minutes to prepare with some amazing ingredients.

Break out your favorite large skillet and let the deliciousness begin.

I used these oh so cute Land O Lakes Butter Half Sticks with Olive Oil & Sea Salt for my quesadillas.  I’m in love with these!

Use your favorite tortillas and let’s get started.

You’ll add about 1 tablespoon of butter for each quesadilla.  Let it sizzle in a large hot skillet.

Place your tortilla into the skillet then add the cheese please!

A little layer of roasted red peppers and kalamata olives.  Mmm!

A layer of bacon up next.

A touch of fresh parsley.

Add another layer of cheese, fold and continue cooking until golden brown and crispy.

Slice your quesadilla in half and enjoy!

Wait until you sink your teeth into this buttery crisp flavorful quesadilla!  Such a treat!
