Toaster quesadillas are trending in the kitchen, and it’s a time and dish-saving healthy hack that we can get behind! We’re sharing toaster quesadillas three ways, loaded with plant-based ingredients and folded into our sprouted whole grain tortillas.

We know what you’re thinking: won’t an ooey-gooey quesadilla make for an icky-sticky toaster? The hack here is all in how you fold the tortilla. Keeping the fillings away from the edges, you’ll want to fold the quesadilla into a pocket and load them into the toaster open-end on top. This will keep all the deliciousness inside of the tortilla and off of your toaster.

We have three toaster quesadillas to get you started: bean and cheese, cheese, and pizza variations. In any of these recipes, the family can choose their favourite tortilla flavour and customize the fillings as they prefer (great for picky eaters!). Ready in 10 minutes or less, this afterschool snack or weeknight meal is quick to make, easy to clean, and deliciously nutritious!

General Toaster Quesadilla Technique:

  1. Fold the tortilla up so the edges meet, and then fold each side in towards the centre to create a little pocket.
  2. Pop that pocket into the toaster and toast on the medium setting (3/4) until crisp. (The cheese will be melty, but don’t worry about it oozing out and making a mess of your toaster.)

  • Yes, these can be made in a toaster oven, too! Just put them folded-side down on the baking sheet and toast.
  • Get kids cooking in the kitchen with this easy-to-make meal. Older kids can make toaster quesadillas themselves as an afterschool snack or a self-serve lunch. Younger kids can help spread toppings but should have toaster supervision.
