  • 2 Tortillas Wholegrain or White
  • 250 g Chestnut mushrooms sliced
  • 2 Cloves of garlic crushed in 1 ½ tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 Rashers of bacon smoked or unsmoked, sliced
  • Grated Cheddar as much as you want, I used about 120g quite conservative
  • Light olive oil for frying


  1. Start by frying your bacon strips in a splash of oil, then set aside using a slotted spoon.
  2. Next fry your mushrooms with in another splash of oil until golden.
  3. Now put your Quesadilla together by laying out the tortilla on a chopping mat.
  4. Place the fillings on one side only, start with a layer of cheese, then a layer of bacon, a layer of mushroom and finish with another layer of cheese then drizzle the half the garlic oil over the top and fold tortilla in half.
  5. Repeat this process for the other tortilla.
  6. Now place the Quesadillas in a preheated dry frying pan and heat for 1 – 2 minutes a side on a medium heat so that the cheese melts and the Quesadillas brown slightly.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer you can just fry the garlic up with the mushrooms instead of adding in the oil at the end.
