Cheeseburger quesadillas with quick-fix wedge salad

Serves: 4


For the pickle mayo dressing

80g mayonnaise

4 pickled gherkins, chopped, plus 2 tbsp pickle juice

Salt and black pepper


For the quesadillas

1 tbsp olive oil

500g beef mince

150ml ketchup

2 tbsp American-style yellow mustard

4 large flour tortillas

200g Wexford Rich & Mature Red Irish Cheddar, grated

Cooking spray


To serve

2 Little Gem lettuces, halved lengthwise

2 tomatoes, chopped


Preparation method

  1. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, pickle juice and some salt and pepper
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the mince for 6-8 minutes until completely cooked through and no pink parts remain, stirring to break up lumps with a wooden spoon. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the ketchup and mustard.
  3. Sprinkle half of each tortilla with around 25g grated Wexford Cheddar. Top with each with one quarter of the mince mixture, some chopped gherkins and another 25g Wexford Cheddar. Fold each tortilla in half to cover the filling.
  4. Heat a large pan over a medium heat. Coat the outsides of the quesadillas with cooking spray and cook for about two minutes per side until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are golden brown, working in batches.
  5. Place each half of Little Gem on a serving plate and top with some chopped tomato and a drizzle of the pickle mayo dressing. Serve with the quesadillas.
