Cheese and ham toasties with a difference! These cheesy quesadillas are packed with salad – ideal for lunch or a light supper.

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 10 minutes to 12 minutes
  • Total time: 20 minutes to 22 minutes

Makes: 4


  • 4 tsp Tomato Chutney
  • 8 Discovery Soft Flour Tortillas
  • 250g pack Grated Mozzarella
  • 120g pack Waitrose British Finely Sliced Dry Cured Honey Roast Gammon Ham
  • 25g pack fresh basil
  • 2 little gem lettuces, washed and quartered


  1. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Spread 1 teaspoon of the tomato chutney over the surface of 4 of the tortillas and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, place a plain tortilla in the hot pan and sprinkle a quarter of the grated cheese evenly over the surface. Arrange 1½ slices of ham, slightly overlapping, on top of the cheese. Scatter with a few torn basil leaves and then top with one of the reserved tortillas, chutney-side down.
  3. Cook for about 1 minute, until the bottom tortilla is golden and the cheese is beginning to melt. Using a spatula, carefully turn the tortilla over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes, or until the bottom tortilla is golden and the cheese is melting. Turn on to a wooden board and keep warm.
  4. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and ingredients, then open the 4 toasted tortillas and stuff each with a lettuce quarter. Serve the quesadillas cut into 4-6 wedges. Eat while still warm with Waitrose Watercress, Roquette & Spinach Salad.
