Everyone has their favourite don’t they? Lemon and sugar. Banana and chocolate. Ham and cheese. The Breville® Crêpe Maker is for those and so much more. Use yours to be brave and make these delicious homemade tortilla Quesadillas (you can cheat and buy tortillas from your local supermarket). You can fill them with a variety of vegetables, chicken or meat – whatever you fancy! The secret to the delicious flavour in our quesadillas is to cut the pepper and onions into a really fine dice.
How it’s done
For the flour tortillas
- Sift the flour into the bowl, rubbing in the fat until it resembles breadcrumbs. Dissolve the salt in the warm water and then add it gradually to the flour mixture, stirring until you have a soft dough.
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until it is smooth and elastic. Divide them into about 12 balls and put them on a lightly greased tray, and cover it with cling film and rest for about 1 hour at room temperature.
- Heat your Breville® Crêpe Maker on setting 3 with no oil.
- Roll out each ball into a circle that is about 20 cm across. Lay one on the plate and cook for 1 minute until it starts to pull off. Then flip it over and cook it on the other side. It should still be soft.
- Repeat until all the mixture is used, then set aside on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
For the pepper filling
- Heat your Breville ® Crêpe Maker on setting 3 with no oil.
- Place the cheese, red pepper, green pepper, yellow pepper, red onion and chilli into a bowl and combine well.
- Place a tortilla wrap onto the Crêpe Maker plate. Add a couple of handfuls of the cheese mixture, as if you were making a pizza. Spread it out to within ¼ inch of the edge of the tortilla.
- Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes until the base turns golden and crispy and the filling begins to melt.
- Place your hand gently on top of the quesadillas (it won’t be hot) and ease a spatula underneath. Flip the quesadillas over and cook for a few more minutes until crisp.
- Serve hot and cut into wedges. The Breville® Crêpe Maker Quesadillas are delicious served with a side of spicy salsa and avocado dip.
