Mikekey!! It doesn't get any easier than this. I make similar but have not done the mater or the onions before. Why I have no idea but let me say this is the bomb!! I made this for my lunch yesterday using a ham steak sliced thin ( no deli for me allowed) a mater from neighbors garden organic and green onions from mine. Wonderful. quick, nourishing, and flat out good. I then made one for my neighbor, her mater after all, and she thought this was great. She couldn't believe I drove over on my lawn mower, plate in hand with a lunch for her. It was pretty funny thinking about it but better than taking the car. I am actually making these tonight again and cutting into quarters for an appy as a couple of the neighbors are coming by for a stop in after dinner. A bit of vino, some veggies, and your Quesadillas will do the trick. Thanks Mike I just love this variation.

Made as directed and these were so simple and delicious! Great as a snack, appetizer or just for a meal with a salad. I might add some mushrooms next time but thank you for posting. Made for New Kids on the Block tag game 2013.

I just finished making these. I was going to wait for lunch, but breakfast was calling to me. This is very similar to the way I normally make them... but I never did a tomato & scallion version before. I made this, per recipe using tomato, for hubby... and made mine with scallion & green bell pepper (I don't like tomato unless cooked to make a sauce). We both enjoyed these very much. I served them with sour cream on the side. Thanks for posting your simple and wonderful snack/lunch. (Made for "New Kids" tag)
