Brussels, Bacon, Bean, and Smoked Gouda Quesadillas

 

Now, this combination sounds a little strange, but trust me, it will knock your socks off.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and had to try it.

First of all, I’m in love with brussels sprouts. Second, bacon and I are best friends. Basically, this recipe had to made and put into my mouth asap.

The great part about this recipe is you can add or change the amounts to any ingredient. Love bacon? Add some more. Feeling just “ehh” about the beans? Just add a little to taste. It’s your quesadilla. Make it how you want it:)
