Every year for Christmas Papa Hunk makes his Herb Crusted Prime Rib and King Crab Legs. It is a feast fit for twenty people but in our case, we only need to feed four, one of which is a pescatarian. I hate to see food go to waste so over the past few years I have tried to find creative ways to use up our leftovers, see my Creamy Steak Soup Recipe or my Steak& Tortellini Soup Recipe from a few years back. This year I tried out a few new recipes to make the most out of our Christmas feast. These recipes included Prime Pasta, Steak Quesadillas, Beef & Barley Soup, and Crab Cakes. Last week I posted my Prime Pasta recipe, now it is time to share these super simple quesadillas.
