  • 3 large tortillas
  • 3 cups shredded cheese (300g) I used equal amounts of Gruyere, sharp Cheddar, and Smoked Gouda
  • 1 tablespoon frying oil or butter optional


  • Shred the cheese on the large holes of a box grater. Combine the cheeses in a large bowl.
  • Place about 1 cup of cheese on half of each tortilla. Fold tortilla in half.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Place two fold in half tortillas in the pan.
  • Cook the quesadillas until they are browned on both sides and the cheese is melted.
  • Transfer to a plate, sprinkle with salt and cut into triangles.
  • Enjoy!


  • You can use any kind of melting cheese, it can be just 1 type of cheese.
  • Cooking quesadillas in oil is optional, you can also cook them in a dry non-stick pan but they're crispier and tastier cooked in oil.
  • Calories = 1 quesadilla (1/3 of the recipe).
