Whether you’re gearing up for a delicious St. Patrick’s Day, or want to put a fresh spin on some pub food, Irish Quesadillas are a great way to turn some heads (and taste buds). Potato farl layered with sharp Irish cheddar cheese, horseradish mayo, and fresh corned beef; these mighty morsels can be made slider sized or large, depending on your preference. Just make sure you have plenty to go around.

Irish Quesadillas

Serves: Makes 8 to 12       Total Time: 75 Minutes

Ingredients

Potato Farl (Potato Bread) 
  •  6 fist sized (4”) baking potatoes 
  •  2 tbsp. butter 
  •  salt to taste 
  •  ½ cup of all purpose flour + more for dusting 

 Irish Quesadillas 

  • ½ lb. of shaved corned beef (try our smoked corned beef recipe)  
  • 1 cup (125g.) of shredded Isle of Man cheddar cheese 
  •  ¼ cup horseradish mayo + more for dipping 
  • parchment paper

Directions

Step 1
Install the warming rack and place a Napoleon Pizza Stone in the center of the grill. Preheat the grill to 400°F by lighting the two outside burners.
Step 2
Scrub the potatoes and place them on the warming rack. Bake the potatoes for about an hour, or until a fork easily pierces them.
Step 3
Remove the potatoes from the grill. Slice them in half and scoop out the insides into a bowl. Keep the skins.
Step 4
In the bowl, mash the potato with the butter and salt (feel free to add pepper and garlic if you wish). Add the flour, a little at a time. Your goal is to have a slightly sticky dough that resembles play-doh. You may need to add more or less flour to get the right consistency.
Step 5
Flour your work surface and grab a baseball-sized handful of potato dough. Use a rolling pin to roll it out to ¼ inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out rounds (or make a couple giant Irish Quesadillas) placing them onto parchment paper.
Step 6
Place the parchment paper onto the preheated pizza stone and bake for about 5 minutes. While the potato farls are baking, fill the potato skins with layers of corned beef, mayo, and cheese.
Step 7
Bring the potato skins to the grill and place them onto the warming rack. Flip the potato farls and continue baking for another 3 to 5 minutes or until the other side is beginning to brown.
Step 8
Now that they’re browned, spread a little mayo on each potato farl round. Layer a little cheddar, meat, and more cheddar. Finally place another farl round on top. Close the lid of the grill for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
Step 9
Serve the potato skins and Irish Quesadillas together. Sláinte (Cheers).

Appetizing Irish Quesadillas are exactly what the doctor ordered for a mouthwatering pub-style snack. The horseradish mayo gives the salty-smoky corned beef a bit of kick and it all pairs perfectly with a great pint of stout. Not one to let a great ingredient go to waste, repurposing those potato skins to make potato skins, was great. They were already crunchy from baking, so it only took a little warm up to make them into a fantastic addition to the recipe. How will you use your grill on St. Patrick’s Day?
