If you are looking for a healthy quesadilla recipe, you need to get far away from this Mexican-inspired dish. From Perry Santanachote of The Thrillist, the Bacon Mac and Cheese Quesadilla makes several unconventional substitutions. Instead of tortilla, the quesadilla's contents are sandwiched between two enormous, circular bacon weaves. In between these porky layers is macaroni and cheese.

Calling for two pounds of salty and delicious bacon in addition to half a pound of elbow macaroni and a truck load of sharp cheddar cheese, this quesadilla recipe is a savory delight. The gooey and crispy textures are photographed to mouth-watering effect by Drew Swantak. In only 35 minutes you have an epic meal fit to serve six people -- or a smaller but more ambitious bunch.
