Snowflake Quesadillas

Snowflake Quesadillas


This is a cool way to bring the old craft idea of making paper snowflakes into a hot savoury meal.

Quesadillas use a filling between two tortilla breads and heated through on a pan. This recipe from
Heavenly Homemakers cuts snowflake patterns out of the top tortilla to make a lovely melting flake.

Quesadillas are normally turned halfway through to toast both sides, and this would not be possible with filling oozing through the holes. So if you want a toasted top, put the cut snowflake onto the pan on its own first for a couple of minutes to toast, then put in your bottom tortilla and filling and place the pre-toasted flake on top.

The mom on this blog uses cheese as a filling to keep the appearance pale, but of course you could add any filling you like, why not have a brightly coloured flake full of sauce and veggies as well as cheese?

I do like her suggestion that you bake the cut out pieces to make them into chips to dip in salsa - no waste!



You can find you picture instructions on cutting the tortilla flake here.

Frozen Banana Crunch Popsicles This is a fun alternative to an ice lolly, with a portion of fruit shoehorned in. We found it on Baking Bites and there are clear instructions there on how to make it. Because the banana is frozen and has a sweetened crunchy coating it feels more of a treat. We have also seen versions using crushed up Special K type cereals - especially good are the ones with the berries as you get little flakes of chewy red in the coating. You can use a pes...

Easter Bunny Breakfast with Scrambled Egg and Bacon Loving this creative Easter breakfast. I know it's fab to get up and do the Easter egg hunt, but you need to get some 'proper food' into kids before they really pile in to the pile of chocolate. This is a great breakfast idea which will fill them up and make them smile and enable you to get them to postpone the chocolate carnage for a little longer. The recipe was created by Carrie over at worthpinning.com and was inspired by some ...
