Snack Box Inspiration: Quesadilla!

WhichSchoolAdvisor is launching the first in an occasional series of videos sharing inspirational ideas for healthy, reasonably-priced and easy-to-create snackboxes. If you have ideas which you’d like to share with other parents feel free to record a brief video or simply send us your recipes…



The trick to making these less time consuming to make and easier for the kids to grab and go is baking them sandwiched between 2 baking trays in the oven instead of on a grill pan.


Makes 2 Quesadillas
Prep time 10mins, Cook time 30 mins

– 4 Corn Tortillas
– Mayonnaise (or 2Tbsp of yoghurt mixed with 1 tsp of mustard)
 – 2 spring onions, chopped
– 2 Slices Turkey
– 1/2 C Cheese, grated



You will need 2 baking trays, silicon baking paper, a knife and a heavy rock

Oven to 180°

Spread a little mayo over the corn tortilla. Alternatively, any kind of wrap will do. There are some great multigrain wraps on the market for extra roughage as well.

Sprinkle a few spring onions over it and season to taste

Cover with ham and sprinkle with cheese. Cover with a second tortilla.

Repeat for a second quesadilla.

Place quesadillas on a non stick baking tray or one lined with non stick paper. Put another tray on top and place a rock on top of that to hold the quesadilla down flat.

Pop those in the oven for 30mins and cut with a pizza cutter when cooled.
