Shamrock Quesadillas Ingredients:
Shamrock Quesadillas Recipe
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grate your cheese if you bought bar cheese instead of a bag of shredded.
Use the shamrock cookie cutter to cut out your tortillas. You will need 2 Shamrock shapes for each quesadillas.
Use a pastry brush to brush one shamrock with melted butter. Place butter side down on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese and add toppings of choice. Top with a second shamrock and brush top with butter. Repeat for remaining shamrock shapes.
Bake for 5 minutes or so, checking frequently. You want the shamrock quesadillas to just be starting to brown and get a little crispy. You can also fry them in a skillet if you like. I prefer baking them because they all cook at once.
