Goats cheese, Bacon and Avocado Quesadillas

  • Quesadillas are kind of a new obsession, since starting a new time intensive job and realising that at some point completing my thesis might be a good plan. They are very quick to make, and something which you can always have the ingredients for lying around. They can be a snack or a meal, and perfect post pub food. These are perhaps not the healthiest thing in the world, but they are very very tasty, and take about 5 minutes to make. You can adjust the bacon according to personal taste.
    Makes four, enough for two as a meal or a few as a snack.


  • 4 Flour tortillas.
  • 200g of goats cheese.
  • 50-100g of bacon, depending on preference.
  • 2 avocados, skinned and thinly sliced.
  • Sunflower oil


  • First, fry the bacon in the tiniest amount of oil, until crispy.
  • Next, divide the goats cheese between the four tortillas.
  • Fold each in half, and press down to seal the two sides and distribute the cheese.
  • Pre-heat a separate pan to the bacon (or fry in bacon fat if you prefer).
  • The frying pan should be very hot when you put the quesadilla in, so it will brown quickly 45 seconds to 1 minute on each side, while melting the cheese a bit but not so much that it gets grainy.
  • They should be golden brown and crispy.
  • Open again, divide the bacon and avocado equally between all four.
  • Serve immediately.
