"You can also just put the butter on the griddle and lay the tortilla on top. You can then just butter the 2nd tortilla before flipping. No mess that way."

"Good. Nothing special really. Just your standard fresh-tasing quesadilla. I thought buttering the tortillas was kind of annoying,"

"Very good! Hard to flip so they cheese stays inside. I would try ham or chicken or roast beef another time or even bacon."

"Very tasty. I think next time, like the others I will add some chicken and even some bacon. The cream cheese was a great additions. Butter the outsides seem complicated to me though so I too will go with Pam."

"Found them a bit bland, although much better with salsa. Next time I will definitely not butter them but spray the pan with butter-flavoured Pam. Has potential."

"These were awesome! I used spray-on butter and fat-free cream cheese (just because I had them on hand) - the quesadillas were easy to make and to flip. Very delicious. Can't wait to finish off the left-overs tonight!"

"Delicious and easy. I used butter-flavoured Pam spray rather than butter on the outside of the tortillas as it was less messy and quicker to do them that way..."

"Yummy! Something about the cream cheese! Have made a bunch of times and added chicken etc. But last time instead of plain butter, I used the garlic butter I had already mixed up from making stuffed breadsticks. It wasnt half bad!"
