I think it’s pretty apparent by now that I LOVE the holidays, and especially Halloween. There are so many fun traditions and activities associated with the holiday, and my entire family loves all that comes with it!!

From pumpkin carving to creepy recipes, we try to get in as much fun as possible and are sure to have at least a few Halloween parties to attend.

We love to serve fun and festive appetizers and sides on Halloween night. Knowing that kids love quesadillas, we thought we’d spice it up a bit and create some Pumpkin Quesadillas.

Pumpkin quesadillas are not only adorable but perfect for the entire family on Halloween. In fact, these would be great any night in October and will be a hit with your kids! It is simple, requires minimal ingredients and is so yummy.

Making Pumpkin Quesadillas

For the Pumpkin Quesadilla, we used the Foldit Traditonal White, but again, any Flatout Foldit works well for this.

SHAPE FLATBREAD. Using a sharp paring knife, cut a pumpkin face into one side of each flatbread. Reserve the larger pieces to create stems (if desired).

ASSEMBLE. Place a layer of Monterey jack or mozzarella on the opposite side of the flatbread (the one without the face cut into it). Then layer with cheddar cheese. Fold the flatbread so that the cheddar is showing through the pumpkin face.

BAKE. Place in the oven and bake for 3-5 minutes. Remove and gently press on the face so that the cheese oozes through the cutouts.

These quesadillas are another fun and simple recipe that the kids will go nuts over! Now, we are prepped and set for dinner on Halloween night.

    I couldn’t find the flatbread, so we used tortillas. My daughter had fun helping me cut out the faces, and of course we both loved eating them! I think it would be even more filling with the flatbread, so I’ll keep checking local stores. 🙂
