Food Category: Bacon, Beef
FoodOrDrink: Food


  • 4 ea Tortillas Large Size
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese Shredded. Sub American if desired.
  • 6 ea Bacon Slices Crumbled – See notes
  • 1 lb Ground Beef I use 80/20
  • 3 tbs Dill Relish
  • 1/2 ea Diced Onion White – Optional
  • 2 tbs Seasoned Salt Or other seasoning of your choice


  • Gather and prep your ingredients.
  • Brown your beef (and apply the seasoning) while you warm the onion and bacon crumbles.
  • Place the tortillas on a cool(er) section of the griddle and add the cheese to them. At the same time, mix the relish, onion, and bacon in with the beef.
  • Add the beef to one half of the tortilla, fold, and apply pressure with a burger or bacon press.
  • Flip your quesadilla when the side in contact with the griddle has browned a bit. Remove when the 2nd side has browned.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • If you’re wondering why my video doesn’t match the appearance of my photos, it’s because I made these a couple times (once with onion and once without – about a year apart).  For what it’s worth, I think they’re better with the onion.  😉
  • There’s a happy medium here for the ground beef.  If you cook it too long, it’ll get dried out, but you don’t want grease dripping from the quesadilla either (at least I don’t).  Just something to be mindful of.  😉  
  • For the bacon crumbles, follow my recipe here for Crispy Bacon Bits.
  • This quesadilla dips well in my burger sauces.  Try one of these:  Zesty Burger SauceBurger Dipping SauceBig Mac Burger Sauce
