Cheesy Mediterranean Bacon Quesadilla

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 quesadilla? I have fond memories of enjoying my mom's quesadillas as a kid, and this recipe is one of my favorites! 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 them!

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 a layer of crumbled feta 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!
