Potato and Cheese Quesadilla

Portions: 10


  • Ingredients
  • 100g MAGGI Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 320ml cold water
  • 120g extra mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 40g Red Leicester cheddar cheese, grated
  • 20g spring onion, washed and thinly sliced
  • 5g chives, finely chopped
  • Cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 50g extra mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 50g mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 5 flour tortillas
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil


Add the water and masked potato flakes to a bowl and whisk for 30 seconds. Leave to reconstitute for two minutes. After two minutes re-mix and add the mature cheddar, Red Leicester, spring onion, chives, and black pepper.
In a separate bowl, mix the remaining mature cheddar cheese and mozzarella. Set aside.
Lay the tortilla over a flat surface, spread 90g of the potato mix evenly over half the tortilla then add 20g of cheese mix on top of the potato.
Fold the tortilla over to form a semi-circle and lightly brush each side of the tortilla with oil.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200⁰C for 8 minutes or until crisp and golden. These can also be pan tried if doing small volumes.
