  • Finally, divide 1 cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese over two tortillas with ham. Cover with 2 tortillas and cook on both sides for 2-3 minutes on medium heat (if using freshly made mashed potatoes or 5-7 minutes on low heat (if using leftover mashed potatoes that are cold), or until cheese melts and mashed potatoes are heated thru. Cut quesadilla into 4 pieces, using pizza cutter.

Feel free to add chopped spinach to these quesadillas, or cooked bacon instead of ham, they taste really good with spinach & bacon too.
If desired, serve potato quesadillas with mild salsa or sour cream.
