These are my super quick and easy "man-pleasing" appetizers. There are minimal ingredients involved, but they pack a big punch of flavor! I use a George Foreman grill, but you could also make them in a grill pan or a panini press.

Ingredients

medium
soft flour tortillas
1/3 c
extra-sharp cheddar cheese for each tortilla
1 Tbsp
real smoked bacon bits, heaping, for each
1 slice
smoked turkey lunchmeat for each
1/2 tsp
minced fresh chives (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Onto one half of each flour tortilla, sprinkle half of the 1/3 cup cheese and half of the bacon. (Note: In the photos, I was in a hurry and forgot and put it all over the tortilla. Oops! It certainly wasn't as easy to fold, so do as I say, NOT as I did in the photos, lol!)
2
Lay one slice of turkey on top of the cheese and bacon.
3
Sprinkle remainder of the cheese and bacon on turkey. Sprinkle with chives, if using.
4
Fold the bare side of tortilla over the cheese side, pressing down to flatten.
5
Repeat for as many tortillas as desired (I usually allow for one tortilla per person.)
6
Preheat George Foreman grill, grill pan or panini press on medium-high.
7
Place as many prepared tortillas on grill as space allows; lower lid and press slightly; grill for about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, lift grill lid, carefully flip tortillas over, lower lid and grill an additional 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, until cheese begins to ooze slightly and tortillas are lightly browned and have nice grill marks (A word of warning: Keep a close eye on them, and do NOT go off and leave them unattended.)
8
After removing from grill, cut each into 3 triangles.
9
Repeat for additional tortillas.
10
Plate as desired. Serve warm or at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
