How To Make a Toasterdilla: Triangle Fold Method

We've dreamt of this day for as long as we can remember! A day when a quesadilla becomes a "grab and go" kind of food. Thanks to the Revolution Panini Press accessory, that dream has become a reality and we are living for these quesadilla's made in your Revolution InstaGLO® Toaster, a TOASTERDILLA if you will.

We've shown you the Pocket Fold Method, now let's get into the TRIANGLE FOLD.

Step 1: On a large tortilla, make a cut from the center of the tortilla to the outer edge. Lay out your ingredients in four sections with room between to allow the tortilla to fold. Pro Tip: 4 ingredients or less is optimal for heat-through.

Step 2: Start by folding the first section over itself.

Step 3: Continue folding until each section has been folded over to form a triangle shape.

Step 4: Once the tortilla has been folded into a triangle, add the quesadilla to the Panini Press.

Step 7: Find the Panini Press mode depending on the toaster model you have (see below).

For more details on modes and selections, please refer to page 6 of your Revolution Panini Press User Manual.

Important: Do not push the Panini Press down, the automatic platform will lower the Panini Press into place.

On your home menu, select Panini Select level of toastyness  Press "start". If you have the Revolution InstaGLO® R180S or R180B, go to the Bread mode on your home menu, and look for the "Panini Mode" toggle at the bottom left. Toggle Panini Mode ON Select your level of toastyness Press "start"

Step 8: Watch your sandwich be perfectly toasted into a TOASTERDILLA!
Pro Tip: If toasting completes and you desire more melting, do a second round of toasting on Panini Mode at a level 3 or 4. The thickness and moisture content of sandwich ingredients can impact heat-through.

Step 9: Remove the Panini Press from the Revolution Toaster and be careful to touch only the handles. Open it up, slide the sandwich out with a fork, and see those perfect grill marks! ENJOY!

Cleanup: Once cooled down, the Panini Press accessory can be cleaned easily with water, soap and a sponge or soft brush. It can also safely be placed in the dishwasher. The Panini Press is designed to contain any sandwich overflow or cheese drips, but if some drips escape, they will be caught by the Revolution Toaster crumb tray. Simply remove that tray and wipe clean.

Do not attempt to reach into the toaster to grab or brush internal heating elements.
