Cheeseburger quesadillas have quickly become one of our favorite weekend treats. It’s easy to see why. Filled with steakhouse hamburgers, caramelized onions, a little salad, cheese, and a special sauce, they are filling and memorable! The best part? They taste a whole lot more complicated than they are to make.
My husband actually first requested that I make these cheeseburger quesadillas after having them for lunch with one of his friends at Applebees restaurant. I’m not sure exactly what all they have on their cheeseburger quesadillas, but this is what we are loving on them at our house!
First, I start by making steakhouse style hamburgers. I used ground sirloin for these, topped with a little bit of Worcestershire sauce and steak seasoning. It’s hard to go wrong with that combination.
Then, I started cooking onions to caramelize for the quesadillas. This only takes a few minutes, but the flavor is out of this world on these quesadillas.
Next, I buttered my griddle over medium heat and added a flour tortilla. I cut the hamburger patty in half, topped with the sauce and a few caramelized onions.
Next came a handful of spring greens, shredded colby and monteray jack cheese and another spoonful of that sauce.
Flip the other half of the tortilla over all of the stuffing and remove from the griddle.
When serving, I recommend cutting the tortilla in half to make it easier to eat.
These cheeseburger quesadillas are definitely messy, but oh they are so very worth it!
