Step 1: Acquire Ingredients

Head to the Grocery store and purchase the following ingredients

* Flour Tortilla

* Any type of Shredded Cheese

* Foil

* A laundry iron

Step 2: Empty the Iron

Before getting started, make sure the Iron you're using has no water in it.

Step 3: Turn on the Iron to Preheat.

Plug the iron in, and turn it on the highest setting. If no numbers are shown, Cotton/Linen is the hottest setting option.

Step 4: Preparation

Pull out and tear off a large piece of foil. The sheet of foil should be long enough to extend past the edges of the tortilla.

Step 5: Place the Tortilla

Take one tortilla and place it in the center of the cut out piece of foil.

Step 6: Place the Cheese

Grab your desired amount of cheese, and spread it along one half of the tortilla.

Step 7: Fold the Tortilla

Take the empty side of the tortilla and fold it on top of itself, to make the quesadilla shape.

Step 8: Fold the Foil

Take the top half of the foil and fold it completely over the quesadilla.

Step 9: Place the Iron

Place the iron over the entire quesadilla. Let it cook on one side for about 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Step 10: Flip the Quesadilla

Flip the Quesadilla over and let it cook on the other side for about another minute.

Step 11: Open It Up

Take the Iron off and open the foil up to let the quesadilla cool down for a couple seconds.

Step 12: Take a Bite

Pick up the quesadilla and enjoy the quick snack.

    Interesting. I never thought to cook with an iron, but that's kinda clever.

    Try probing the internet on things like cooking with a iron and also sandwiches in a toaster, using waffleirons for the most improbably things and others. Put something generic like "cooking" into duckduckgo images. Some of the stuff is hilarious, and some of is sort of..."you know? That MIGHT work!"

    My first thought was "Great! How do I get the iron out of my teeth!?" But then the obvious occurred to me...use a toothpick! As long as it isn't still turned on it isn't a problem, right? =)

    That is very well done, I like that you used tin foil and didn't put the iron directly on it :)
