Ingredients

  • 4 medium whole wheat or flour tortillas
  • 1 ⅓ cup leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups cups grated cheese (mozzarella, Gouda, provolone, Muenster)
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, saute the onion in butter on a medium-low heat for about 7 minutes, until it softens and starts to brown.
  • Add mushrooms, increase the heat to medium and cook for 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • To assemble the quesadilla, spread ⅓ cup of mashed potatoes on one side of the tortilla and sprinkle with ¼ cup of cheese. Spread ¼ of the mushroom-onion mixture on top and sprinkle with ¼ cup of cheese again.
  • Fold the tortilla in half and press slightly with your hand to bind the layers together. Repeat this step to make the remaining three Quesadillas.
  • Fry in a little butter for about 2 minutes on each side.
