  • 1
    small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Pound
    lean ground beef
  • 1
    clove garlic, minced
  • 8
    flour tortillas
  • 2 Cups
    cheddar cheese
  • 1/2
    small red onion, sliced
  • 2
    small roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 Cup
    dill pickles, sliced

    shredded lettuce
  • Burger Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons
  • 2 Tablespoons
    yellow mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons
  • 2 Tablespoons
    onion, finely diced
  • 1 Teaspoon
    white sugar


  1. Place mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.

  2. In a large saucepan, brown mushrooms until moisture has been released, approximately 5-6 minutes. Add onion, beef and garlic, continue to cook for 10 minutes or until ground beef is cooked through.

  3. Meanwhile, combine all burger sauce ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

  4. Place one tortilla in the bottom of a dry grill pan. Sprinkle with cheese, red onion, tomatoes, and dill pickles. Spoon on meat mixture. Top with the second tortilla. If your grill pan comes with a Panini press (lid) place preheated press on top of tortilla. If no press is available, carefully flip the quesadilla over using a spatula.

  5. Remove from skillet and cut into wedges. Serve topped with fresh shredded lettuce and burger sauce.
