Grilled Greek Lamb Quesadillas

Greek Lamb

Ahhhh…..summertime = BBQ season! I love it for two reasons. One, it keeps the house a lot cooler on those hundred-plus degree days. Two, less mess equals a happier mama!

I was really excited when I had the chance to review a box FULL of Udi’s Gluten Free products. I was overwhelmed by their generosity. They have seriously helped my family with our grocery expenses this month and next. I am very grateful!

Udi’s sent me their sandwich breads, muffins, hamburger and hot dog buns, cookies, tortillas and pizza crust. Clearly, there were all kinds of choices for items I could use to create a wonderful grilled meal!

I decided to test the tortillas because these are honestly a food item that I am incredibly picky about. I guess I was spoiled living in a neighborhood where I got to nosh on warm, homemade tortillas any time of day or night. I became a bit of a tortilla snob!

Since the bulk of my tortilla usage has a Mexican theme, I decided to shake things up a bit and create a Greek style meal! Crazy, I know!

First, let me tell you that I was really impressed with the Udi’s brand of tortillas. They were easy to work with and held up well, something that not all tortillas can do. The tortillas were flavorful and my husband honestly had no idea that they were gluten free. That right there is HUGE.

So now that you know that Udi’s Gluten Free Tortillas are the way to go, let’s talk about this recipe, shall we?

My Grilled Greek Lamb Quesadillas are something I just pulled from out of nowhere. I used to create a LOT of Greek dishes but never once made anything like a pita dish or a gyro. So honestly, I had nothing to go on other than what seemed like a cohesive idea.

The result is mouth-watering goodness. Truly! These quesadillas make a filling, nourishing meal that will have your family and friends begging you to make them again!

    I just started getting your newsletter. I will be an ‘opener’ for sure! This recipe sounds amazing! Did not know about Udi’s and will look for their products now! I worked in a Greek restaurant when I was a teen and became a fan of their food but I’ve never made it. I’m going to try this! I am attempting to go low carb again! I did it for 3 years and went from a size 20 to a size 4! Lowered my cholesterol a LOT too! Then I married a skinny carb addict. I fell off the wagon and am now fat and have high cholesterol! Your newsletter will be a big help in getting back on the wagon! Thanks!
